Since 1 October 2015, private vehicles must be smoke-free if they are enclosed, there is more than one person present, and one of them is under 18.
It is an offence:
- for a person of any age to smoke in a private vehicle that is carrying someone who is under 18
- for a driver (including a provisional driver) not to stop someone smoking in these circumstances
The rules don’t apply to e-cigarettes.
