The current Texas laws and tint percentage expectations were enacted in 2009 for drivers in all vehicles. Unlike other states, the expectations are the same for all cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs.
Here is the necessary information to consider if you’re thinking about having your windows tinted or upgraded in Round Rock, Hutto, Cedar Park, Liberty Hill, or Williamson County.
Tint Expectations for Texas Vehicles
You can have some reflective qualities included with today’s automotive window tint in Texas. The front and back side windows cannot be more than 25% reflective to be considered legal.
Texas prohibits some tint colors on vehicles that drive on the road. You cannot place amber, blue, or red on your windshield.
All manufacturers must certify the films sold in the state, which means you should check with your dealer to ensure only those products are for sale.
Texas does allow for medical exemptions. You’ll need to provide documentation from your doctor before anything that exceeds the state’s maximum ratings gets installed.
