Are there exemptions to the window tint law in California? California
Understanding California Tint LawsThe California Highway Patrol and the CA DMV do not offer any exceptions to the window tinting laws except this:
- You may use aftermarket clear UV protectant car tint on the front driver and passenger side windows, as long as you replace it when it bubbles.
- No one can put an aftermarket window tint on their windshield, or the front driver’s side or the passenger’s side windows at all.
- There may be rear-tinted windows only if there are rearview mirrors on both sides of the car.
New Vehicle Registration
The CA DMV does not do an auto tinting inspection, as some other states do, but it might require this as part of an overall safety inspection if you’re bringing the car in from a different state and registering it in California for the first time.
Remember that tint laws apply to everyone driving in the state. These safety laws make you subject to a traffic ticket for having tinting, even if you weren’t doing anything else wrong.
