Previously, we shared a reminder from the Road Transport Department (JPJ) that not tinting your vehicle windows according to the laws and regulations may land you a fine of up to RM2,000 or up to 6 months in jail.

In relation to the reminder, Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook has since clarified the existing laws and regulations regarding tinted vehicle windows in Malaysia.

Speaking in Parliament yesterday (2 November), Loke dismissed the perception by the public that having tinted car windows not according to specs will land you in jail, saying that JPJ has confirmed no one has ever been jailed for such an offence in our country.

He further clarified that while the law and regulation on the matter do allow for up to 6 months of imprisonment, it’s a general regulation regarding many offences and not specific to tinted vehicle windows.

Instead, the reality is offenders will only be issued a compound notice. Only if they do not pay the compound can the offenders be brought to court.

Besides that, Loke further revealed that when he was Transport Minister in 2019, his ministry introduced a new regulation that allowed for vehicle windows to have tints at these percentages:

  • Windshield (70%)
  • Side windows (passenger and driver’s seat) (50%)
  • Rear windows in the backseat (0%)

Furthermore, in the same year, Loke also removed the Transport Minister’s discretion to approve fully dark vehicle window tints for any individuals and instead transferred the powers to the director-general of JPJ.

Loke said that since 2019, road users in the country can apply for fully dark vehicle window tints with JPJ for security or health reasons.

However, the application must be approved by JPJ and a fee is applicable, which is RM5,000 for 2 years.

On his Facebook page, the Transport Minister attached the link where you can apply for fully dark vehicle window tints, which also lists down the requirements to get the application approved.

Among the requirements are a medical report from public or private hospitals for health reasons and for security reasons, a police report or a letter of support.
