Please, the permit is issued by DIG, in Abuja, you can not get from any police station. Go to Kamsalem House Obalende, apply and they will send it to Abuja. It will take about 3 working days to come.

It cost about 20k

ANYONE DRIVING TINTED GLASS VEHICLES WITHOUT PERMIT NOW RISK A FINE OF N50,000 OR A SIX-MONTH JAIL TERM OR BOTH.

This was as a result of the final passage by the Senate, on Thursday, the Bill for an Act to amend the Motor Vehicle (Prohibition of Tinted Glass) Act aimed at checking indiscriminate use of tinted glass vehicles without approval.

The options of fine, jail term or both were contained in the bill, first read on the floor on April 18, 2013 and sponsored by Senator Ita Enang.

The decision of the Senate followed the adoption and approval of the report of its joint committee on Police Affairs and Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters on the bill.

The chairman of the joint committee, Senator Paulinus Nwagwu, said the bill “seeks essentially, to amend the extant law in order to check indiscriminate use of tinted glass vehicles which beat security checks and carry out nefarious activities.”

Nwagwu said the need for the bill arose, following the reactions of Nigerians to the recent announcement by the Nigeria Police of its intention to arrest and prosecute Nigerians driving cars with tinted glass.

He said it was, therefore, necessary to let Nigerians know that the police was not trying to introduce a new law but was merely trying to enforce an already existing Regulations 66 (2) of the National Traffic Regulations of 1997 and the Motor Vehicles (Prohibition of Tinted Glass) Act.

Nwagwu said the Motor Vehicle (Prohibition of Tinted Glass ) Act Amendment Bill 2013 was thus sponsored to, among others, amend the enabling act with a view to streamlining it with the present realities.

“The bill also seeks to address the persisting injustice meted out to Nigerians through embarrassment and harassment, which constitutes a serious affront to the fundamental rights of Nigerians against discrimination as enshrined under Section 42 of the Constitution,” he added.

He said various stakeholders, during the public hearing on the bill, had emphasized the need to address current upsurge in terrorism and other crimes like kidnapping, child trafficking.

The bill, among other provisions, requested buyers of imported vehicles with tinted, shaded, coloured, darkened or treated glass to change it to transparent ones within 14 days from the date of arrival in Nigeria or date of purchase.

In the alternative, it stipulated that buyers of such vehicles should request for a permit for the use of such tinted glass vehicles from the Office of the Inspector General of Police, anywhere in the country, within 90 days of importing the vehicle.

What If I tint only the back glass of my car, will i be arrested ?
Re: Permit For Factory Tinted Glass? by Nobody: 10:48am On Jan 10, 2014
Get a permit if anyone of the glass is tinted and it costs N10k.... Av not been harassed abt it, though... Even after my particulars, av been checked... And funny enough , I simply smile.....And they all become soft , friendly and give me back my papers without much ado.... grin ...isn't it lovely to be a diva?.....lol... No mind me...but Maybe outside Lagos, one could be harassed , and the police stationed out there , might say the 10k permit issued is fake, possibly.?...but not within Lagos...the price is 10k...and no hassles

Yes u sure need tinted- glass permit. I payed N25k. Then u r requested to submit copies of ur vehicle particulars and a picture of the vehicle showing the plate number and at least a tinted glass. The picture appears on the permit. It takes 12days to get it if u are in the east like me. Maturity date varies according to place of application.

You need a tint Permit.


But your approach when you get to check point is very key with or without permit.

1. Stay Calm.
2. Switch On all your inner lights especially if you have a central switch
3. Wind down your glass and greet them with courtesy and smile.
4. If you have a company id card, show them first before the driving licence.


I have done this consistently and have not been embarrassed. They will ask you to go or worst case ask you for money with Hailing. Pretend as if you want to check something for them and tell them you dnt think you can get hold of cash.

I hope that helps.
