The law for automotive window tint varies from state to state. In many northern states window tint laws require nothing darker than a 70% film, while in other parts of the country it can be as dark as 20%.

Here in Georgia the law for tinted glass on your car is 32% for the entire vehicle. There are exceptions to the law of 32%: multi-purpose vehicles, like SUVs or minivans, can go with any shade on the rear of the vehicle. (Any auto glass behind the front two door windows)

These percentages are used to measure the amount of visible light transmitting (VLT) through a tinted window. The lower the percentage means the darker the film. One thing to consider is even though a car’s window may not be tinted, it doesn’t mean it is clear. A lot of auto glass that isn’t tinted can have its VLT measure at around 70% or higher. This can sometimes put a car on the illegal side even though the proper percentage of tint was applied.
