Are Light Bars and Other Auxiliary Lights Legal in Georgia?

Georgia Laws on Custom Vehicle Lighting

Light bars are one of the more popular modifications we see for off-roading vehicles at Akins Ford, offering improved visibility that helps keep you safe in the long run. In the state of Georgia, it is legal to have a spotlight, light bar, or other auxiliary lights installed on your vehicle. There are however some restrictions. This guide covers the laws on light bars and other auxiliary lighting systems in Georgia.

The Georgia Code outlines limits on the number of lights that can be equipped on one vehicle. The law does not allow more than one spotlight, two fog lights, one auxiliary passing light, and one auxiliary driving light. Blue lights are prohibited on passenger vehicles. Using blue lights on any non-emergency vehicle is considered a felony and can result in up to one year in jail and/or a fine of $1,000.

Height restrictions for fog lights, auxiliary passing light, and auxiliary driving lights are also outlined in GA Code § 40-8-29 (2019).
