It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to see that LED driving lights and lightbars have become extremely popular within the 4x4 and commercial communities, and for great reason. Not only do they create iris burning amounts of light but they can also set off that “look” we all know you love from a well built rig! BUT, it is so important to consider the legalities before fitting them to your vehicle.
You see each state enacts its own road rules, so rather then working together on a national scale each states legislation for driving lights will be different. For the purpose of this writeup we are going to solely focus on Queensland’s legislation.
The below information below comes from TMR QLD Website:
Vehicle Standards Instruction (Light 15.3)
Driving Lamps including Light Emitting Diode (LED) light bars on light vehicles
Released May 2013 Updated September 2015 (replacing G15.1)
This instruction only applies to light vehicles in Queensland, excluding heavy vehicles, motor bikes and motor trikes. Check to ensure the fitting of driving lamps complies with other jurisdictions requirements before travelling interstate. The fitting of driving lamps, including LED light bars is permitted in Queensland. The following instructions provide advice on the fitting of driving lamps and associated mounting brackets.
Further Information Under the Road Rules, driving lamps must not be used in a manner that will dazzle another driver. Refer to the related documents below for more information on the Road Rules.
