In the past year we have had an increase in questions concerning the Georgia Tint law and how it affects our business and we wanted to explain a little more in detail about the law to help our customers understand.

By state law, unless you applied for a medical exemption, you cannot reduce light transmission through your rear windshield and windows to less than 32% net VLT. VLT or (Visible Light Transmission) is a measurement of how much visible light is allowed to pass through the glass with film applied. You also can’t increase light reflectance to more than 20 percent for the rear windshield and windows. If an officer pulls you over for violating these provisions, you’ll earn a misdemeanor and can get fined up to $500. This law effects passenger vehicles as classified by the U.S. Government and there are exemptions for MPV(Multi Purpose Vehicles) such as trucks and SUV’s. For example:

Passenger Cars cannot have any film applied to the sides or rear of the vehicle that reduces the light transmission to less than 32%

  1. it says today, but that could be a year ago, there is no date any where. so when is it?

  2. I often visit your site and have noticed that you don’t update it
    often. More frequent updates will give your site higher authority
    & rank in google. I know that writing articles takes a lot of time, but you can always help yourself with miftolo’s tools which
    will shorten the time of creating an article to a few seconds.

  3. Should a vehicle from a different state be tinted to allow less sunlight, say… 20%, is it then required to be re-tinted to 32% when relocating to Georgia?

  4. I see you don’t monetize thetintguy.com, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn extra cash every month with new monetization method.
