The current set of statutes for automotive window tinting in Texas were created in 2009. Before you have any work done on your vehicle, you’ll need to ensure the selected films meet with the state’s standards.
Texas uses the VLT standard for measuring the darkness levels of window tint. VLT stands for “visible light transmission,” and it’s expressed in percentages. If you have a VLT 50 product, that means it allows 50% of light through the product.
Here are the standards that you’ll need to follow in Texas today.
