Is Your Window Tint Legal? Check Your State’s Laws Here!

July 21, 2020

There’s something sleek and elegant about deep, dark window tint. It’s got that look of luxury and mystery, like the limos you see pull up to the red carpets in Hollywood. But did you know that every state has different laws and regulations when it comes to window tint? If you install your own tint or go with a discount installation, you might end up with a ticket instead of the red-carpet treatment. Here’s some information that can help you navigate the legalities of window tint.

What’s Legal and What’s Not?

For a comprehensive guide for your state, AAA has a helpful list. But laws are subject to change, so be sure to check with an expert before getting tint installed. In general, these laws cover how dark your tint can be and where it’s legal to install it. Is the windshield ok? How about the side windows? There are also laws concerning whether the tint can be reflective or what color it can be. Some require special permits or stickers in place on the window tint, and others allow darker tinting for medical reasons with a DMV permit. Make sure you educate yourself and that you’re dealing with a professional installer, like the ones at Tint World®.
