Oklahoma Tint Laws

Oklahoma tint laws have been on the books since 2006. That makes them much more recent than the tint laws in many states which often date back to the 1990s, and thus there has been less need for recent updates to Oklahoma tint rules as they were enacted after the development of most window tint products still in use today, such as nano-ceramic based window tints that use millions of bits of non-metallic ceramic bits infused into sheets of durable film.

Still window tint laws are subject to be updated and changed from time to time, thus it’s a good idea for you to stay current with your knowledge of tint laws for cars in Oklahoma, as window tint tickets in the state can add up to hundreds of dollars in costs if you get hit with multiple citations. The most important thing to check for is tint darkness, which is referred to as visible light transmission, or VLT for short.

Police can check VLT percent on the scene during a stop, so don’t think you can avoid window tint tickets save for during a formal inspection. Given the darkness of window tint allowed by Oklahoma tint law, there’s really no need to press your luck anyway.

% of Tint or Visible light transmission (VLT) is the measurement used to assess the amount of light passing through a piece of glass. This is the percent of visible light that passes through the film and glass to give you a net transmission percentage. The lower the VLT%, the darker the window.

Law Enforcement uses a tint meter which measures the Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) of window film and glass for illegal tint. 

Windshield: Several states allow medical exemptions for drivers or passengers who frequently travel in the vehicle. These exemptions usually require a licensed physician in that state to sign a waiver. Please visit your states .gov site for details.

If you’re driving a truck or SUV built in the last decade, chances are it’s equipped with factory tinted glass on all windows behind the front doors.

Many owners of vehicles like this often choose to only have the front windows tinted to match the back because they believe that they are already set with the rear windows.

UV Protection

While this factory tint improves the looks of the vehicle, and offers rear passengers some privacy, it does very little to help reduce the heat entering through the glass or protect them from the sun’s harmful UV rays. 

Heat Rejection

The same also goes for heat rejection. Some assume that the level of heat rejection they will on the front glass is already present in the rear glass because of the factory tint. Nothing can be further from the truth. Other than having the tinted look, these windows do very little to stop the heat.
