police tint permit in nigeria

To obtain a tinted permit, start by registering your vehicle on the new police e-CMR portal. This process usually takes about 3 minutes. We’ve provided a detailed guide on how to complete the registration on the e-CMR portal here.

After registering your vehicle on the e-CMR portal, you’ll need to wait for validation. Typically, it takes 24 hours for your application to be approved. Once your account is approved, you can log in to the e-CMR portal to continue the registration process

To apply for your tint permit, you must fulfill two key requirements. Firstly, you need a doctor’s report from a government hospital explaining why you need a tint permit for your vehicle. Secondly, you’ll need a recommendation from reputable security agencies such as the police, DSS, EFCC, the Army, or Navy stating the reasons for your tinting requirement.

Of the two requirements, obtaining a doctor’s report is usually the quicker and more convenient option. Once you have the report, you can proceed with your tinted permit application. Please note that there is a non-refundable fee of 21,500 (inclusive of VAT) for the registration.

It’s important to understand that the issuance of a tint permit is not automatic after payment of the statutory fees. The Nigerian Police force has the exclusive right to approve or deny your request. Therefore, it’s crucial to submit the original doctor’s report and accurate particulars of your vehicle, as any errors could disqualify you.

Secondly, select the reason why you need to tint your car’s windows. As we advised earlier, Medical reasons are usually the most convenient as you can easily walk into any government hospital and get a doctor’s report.



Scan and upload a soft copy of your Doctor’s report and click continue. You will be redirected to the payment page. As stipulated earlier in this article, registering for a tint permit on the eCMR portal will cost you a non-refundable fee of 21,500 naira only.



After completing the payment, your application will be processed. The Nigerian Police force will review your submission and may contact you for any additional information or verification.

Once your application is approved, you will receive a notification on the e-CMR portal. You can then log in to download and print your tint permit. Remember to keep this permit in your vehicle at all times, as you may be required to present it to law enforcement officials when requested.

It’s important to note that the tint permit is valid for a specific period, usually one year. You will need to renew your permit before it expires to avoid any legal issues.

We hope this guide has been helpful to you.
