Are there exemptions to the window tint law in New Jersey? New Jersey

New Jersey Tint Law Exemptions

Despite the reputation for having the nation's toughest window tint restrictions and related safety laws, New Jersey does allow for exemptions, but only for the following medical reasons:

  • Persistent light reactivity
  • Poly morphous light eruption
  • Actinic rectuloid
  • Porphyrins
  • Solar urticaria
  • Lupus erythematosus
If you think you qualify for a car tint exemption, complete a Request for Medical Exemption to Apply Vehicle Sun-Screening (Form MR-15).  You can download this from the MVC website, or request one by phone at (856) 853-4118. A licensed physician must complete portions of the application.

After completing, mail to:

NJ Motor Vehicle Commission
West Deptford Regional Service Center
215 Crown Point Road
Suite 100
West Deptford, NJ 08086

If your application is accepted, the MVC will notify in about three to six weeks by mailing you a medical exemption card. This will authorize you the use of auto tinting. It can only be applied to the vehicle listed on the exemption card.

Have your medical exemption card with you when you take your car in for window tinting. Your new tinted windows must adhere to New Jersey's window tint restrictions. If your tinting exceeds New Jersey standards your car will not pass inspection, and without a valid inspection sticker you risk steep fines, possible jail time, and having your vehicle registration revoked.
