Washington State enacted car window tinting laws in 2011. They have remained consistent since that time, but legislation is always subject to change. Before investing in a high-quality window tint, please check the current rules to ensure that what you want is possible.
The primary window tint laws in Washington govern darkness and reflection levels. A few additional requirements are also necessary for some situations.
Tint Laws for Darkness
Washington Reflection Laws for Window Tint
If you have the back window tinted, Washington State requires dual side mirrors to be installed on the vehicle. Several restricted colors, including red and yellow, are not allowed for installation.
A sticker must also identify legal tinting between the film and glass on the driver’s side window.
Washington allows for medical exemptions. You’ll need to provide proof of eligibility before Tacoma Window Tinting can provide services.
