How to Satisfy JPJ Tinting Regulations in 2021

Within Malaysia, it is legally required to follow the regulations of the Road Transport Department (JPJ) as they set the standards for vehicle safety and roadworthiness.

Since 2019, JPJ has instated new regulations for window tints. Vehicles in Malaysia must comply with the following visible light transmission (VLT) requirements:
• Front windscreen: 70% VLT minimum
• Front side windows: 50% VLT minimum
• Rear side windows: 0% VLT minimum
• Rear windscreen: 0% VLT minimum

Front windscreens will require a 70% visible light penetration rating while front side windows will need a 50% visible light penetration rating. However, drivers are now allowed to have any percentage they wish for their rear side windows and rear windscreen. This frees vehicle owners to apply maximum tinting for the rear portion of their cars, as long as they have 2 side mirrors. Most cars are already built with 2 side mirrors, except for classic cars made before 1980.

Note that it is not the window film’s VLT that is measured for JPJ compliance, but the net VLT of the window plus window film. For example, in order to qualify with a net VLT of 70%, the front windscreen will typically need to be tinted with a window film of at least 85% VLT. This is because the non-tinted windscreen glass already has a VLT rating of its own. Similarly for the front side windows, in order to meet JPJ’s regulatory net VLT of 50%, the window film’s VLT must be at least 75%.
