Arizona Window Tint Laws
If you are considering getting your car or truck windows tinted in AZ, make sure to follow the state laws that pertain to VLT (Visible Light Transmission). While Arizona has lenient tinting laws, and likely due to the intense sun exposure we get here year round, there are limitations to how dark your side windows, rear window and windshield can be.
How Dark Can My Window Tint Be?
Windshield: You can install tint on the top portion of the windshield above the AS-1 manufacture's line (typically 3-5 inches) provided it is not reflective material.
Front Windows: Current AZ state law permits window tinting however more than 33% of light must be allowed through.
Back Windows: Any darkness level of tinting is permitted. "Limo" tint is accepted as there are no restrictions.
Rear Window: Any darkness level of tinting is permitted. "Limo" tint is accepted as there are no restrictions.
