Window Tint

Will my window tint pass inspection?

Good question, we will attempt to provide a good answer here.

There are many benefits from window tint for car owners, but very few for Police Officers.  Some of you may or may not remember, there was a time when Police Officers were being shot through a tinted driver side window in NC. Hence the new regulation by DMV to prevent this dangerous situation for officers doing their job.  

In an effort to respond without outlawing tint all together DMV issued a regulation for the amount (Darkness) of tint a registered car owner could have on their windows without a permit (limo companies have the permit). Realizing that an outright ban would be an over reaction, they implemented a 32% rule,  32% will allow officers an adequate level of viability while filtering enough UV rays for car owners to enjoy the benefits.

The way its measured is a bit more complicated and is best taken up with your location manager when you bring your car in to have it checked. Fortunately Tint manufactures adhere to this regulation and it’s rarely a problem.

Removing tint is fairly simple and straight forward, but removing the residual adhesive that left behind is another story, it can be a labor intense process and again should be taken up with your location manager.
