NSW Roads and Maritime Services is a little late to the party, but has finally released the new amended laws surrounding the fitment of LED light bars. While previously the law dictated that auxiliary driving lights must be fitted in pairs, NSW residents now can run with just one LED light bar if so desired. But as always, there is a catch!
ADR13 has been amended to remove the requirement to fit lights in pairs, providing the lights:
Do not exceed four in total
Are wired in conjunction with the high beam circuit of the vehicle
Are fitted symmetrically about the longitudinal centreline
Face towards the front of the vehicle
Roads and Maritime now exempt vehicles from the requirement to fit additional lights in pairs, as long as all other requirements are met. Hey, I’d call that a win but what do you think?

  1. It is NOT legal to install / operate lights from your roof in any State of Aus. Must be installed IN FRONT of the vehicle ..i have read that on every States roads department. I just shake my head when i see companies like Opposite Lock stores promoting and installing such as legal when clearly not the case. ARB not any better. See OL & ARB badged cars with roof mounted led bars! Not setting legal example.

  2. Check out this from https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2015C00543/Html/Text#_Toc422319053
    To me it suggest roof mounted lights are ok
