Window Tint percentages

Window tint percentages in Florida

Tinting on a vehicle’s windshield must be transparent and can only be on the top part of the windshield called the AS/1 portion of the window. AS/1 is defined as “the intersection of the windshield’s centerline with an inclined plane tangent to the upper edge of the 95th eyellipse”. The width of this band varies according to the measurements of the vehicle and can be anywhere from 1.8 inches to 7.5 inches.

Front side window tinting must have a total light reflectance of no more than 25%, as measured on the nonfilm side, and a light transmittance of at least 28%.

Rear side window and rear windshield film tinting must have a total light reflectance of no more than 35%, as measured on the non- film side, and a light transmittance of at least 15%. Rear side window and rear windshield perforated tinting must have a total light reflectance of no more than 35% and a light transmittance of at least 30%.

Measuring Light Transmission and Reflectance

Florida window tinting law requires that measurements for light reflectance and transmission be taken on the specific vehicle on which the tinting has been applied. This means that while a certain tinting may normally comply with the law, if it does not specifically comply with it on your vehicle, it is not legal to have.

To measure light reflectance in perforated tinting that has different levels of reflectance, you should divide the window into 16 equal sections, measure the reflectance of each section, add the numbers together, then divide by 16 to determine the average level of reflectance. As long as the average is no more 35% and no one section is more than 50%, the tinting meets the law’s requirement.

Exceptions to Florida Window Tinting Law

Florida, like most states, allows those with certain medical conditions which require that they not be exposed to direct sunlight to obtain an exemption from the window tinting laws. In order to obtain such an exemption, one must apply to the department of motor vehicles for a certificate, and may be required to pay a fee.

Other exceptions to the Florida window tinting laws include certain law enforcement and private investigator’s vehicles.

Penalty for window tinting

Violation of the window tinting laws in Florida is a non-criminal, non-moving traffic infraction and may result in a fine of up to $500.
