Florida has specific restrictions for vehicles equipped with aftermarket window tints and films. These regulations are based on visible light transmission (VLT) levels that occur once the product is installed.
Most manufacturers provide ratings of VLT 5 to VLT 70 to ensure there are several choices available for your preferred window tint style and all-over look you prefer.
Here is a closer look at some of our team's rules when you trust us for your mobile auto window tinting needs.
Windshield Window Tinting Rules in FL
Florida law permits a non-reflective tint along the top of the windshield above the manufacturer's AS-1 line, which extends approximately five inches from the top.
The tint on the windshield must not be reflective and should only be applied to the top portion.
Front Side Window Tinting Rules in FL
Tinting is allowed on front side windows but must allow a minimum of 28% of light to pass through it when tested. This expectation is also in place for vans and SUVs.
Back Side and Rear Window Tinting Rules in FL
The back side windows must allow more than 15% of the available light into the vehicle, which is the same expectation for the rear window. For SUVs and vans, that requirement drops to 6%.
Law enforcement officers in Florida have the authority to enforce window tint laws during traffic stops or other interactions. If your vehicle's window tint is found to be in violation of the law, you may be subject to penalties, which can include fines or citations.
