I have been looking at getting my windows tinted and couldn't decide on what % to get on the front windows, so I have been doing some research on here and other websites to find out the current laws on window tinting. Obviously I don't want to be too much outside the law and have to have them removed the day paying to have them put on, that would just be a waste. From searching on here I seem'd to find that everyone was under the impression that having your front windows tinted at all is illegal in the UK. When I went to find out some information for myself rather then rely on peoples hear says on threads on here, I first came across this link from the DFT Vosa Oct 2008. However I thought that it might be out of date being published in 2008 and reading the more current up-to-date threads on here. I decided that I wanted to dig a little deeper and see what I could found, so I went onto the direct gov website and found the authoritative source:Tinted Vehicle Windows - The Rules. I am confused why other people here think that it is illegal to have any front window tints, any clarification?
