The current set of statutes for auto window tinting in Texas were enacted in 2009. Before you have any work done on your vehicle, you’ll need to make sure the selected products meet with the state’s laws.
Texas uses the VLT standard for measuring the darkness levels of window tint, which stands for “visible light transmission.” It’s expressed in percentages. That means if you have a VLT 50 product, that means it allows 50% of light through the product.
Here are the standards that you’ll need to follow in Texas today.
