Find your state on the list below to see if your window tinting adheres to the regulations. (VLT percentage stands for visible light transmission, which is the percentage of visible light that gets through the window.)

Concluding Thoughts

If you live in California, Delaware, New York, or Rhode Island, then you’ll want to be particularly careful to observe your state’s tinting rule. Illinois and Texas also have complicated tinting rules. Both states have addendums with unique window tinting rules. Other states with strict tinting laws include New Jersey, New Hampshire, Vermont, Michigan, and Washington, D.C.

No matter what state you live in, it’s wise to research your state’s specific laws to ensure that your vehicle complies with your state’s regulations.
