Here in Nashville, car window tinting has become a hot commodity. However, there are a number of laws in the state of Tennessee that restrict how, where, and which window tinting products can be utilized.

In this blog, Accu Tint will take a look at Tennessee’s window tinting laws. Our auto window tinting professionals always abide by state and local laws, and we’re always happy to help you find products that meet your aesthetic needs and also abide by the laws of the land!

About Window Tinting Darkness

Having darker window tint that offers a lower percentage of VLT (visible light transmitted) is great for keeping your belongings secure and regulating your vehicle’s interior temperature, but there’s a certain point where dark becomes too dark. In Tennessee, at least 35 percent VLT must be allowed through the front and back side windows as well as the rear window. Trust us—35 percent VLT still gives you a dark and sleek look that will keep your vehicle looking and feeling cool!

About Window Tinting Colors

There are hundreds of window tinting colors to choose from—all of which are a great way to give your car a one-of-a-kind, custom feel. Fortunately, there are no laws that prevent any sort of window tint color variations, so you can choose whichever color suits your vehicle best. However, we must say that we’re big fans of the classic smoky grey look.

About Reflective Window Tints

A reflective window tint gives off the appearance of a mirror on your car windows, allowing passersby to see their reflection instead of seeing inside your car. It’s a flashy look (literally) and it’ll certain set your car apart from the crowd. However, Tennessee doesn’t allow reflective window tinting on the front and back side windows. Truth be told, the experts will tell you to avoid it altogether—it can be a bit gaudy and visually overwhelming, and it doesn’t perform as well as nanoparticle film or high-performance film.

About Sticker Requirements

Every vehicle with legal window tinting in Tennessee must have a sticker identifying that tinting on the driver’s side window—no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
