Wyoming Window Tint Laws

Below, you will find the current window tint laws in Wyoming, which were enacted in the year 1996 and have not been fully revised to match new window tint technologies and product evolutions. To ensure your car tint is legal under Wyoming law, you have to know the visible light transmission (the VLT as it is abbreviated) percent of your tinting.

VLT means how much light a tint allows to pass through, essentially referring to how dark and private or clear the film is; the darkest tints may have a VLT of 5%, while clear, see-through tinting may have 905 VLT. Be aware that even lighter, effectively see-through window film can still block harmful UV light and warming IR light, so you do not need dark tint to get many of the benefits of window tinting for cars.

Of course for added privacy and the enhanced looks dark window tint gives vehicles, darker tint can be a great choice.

% 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. 

AS-1 Line: This is the line extending from the letters AS-1, found on most motor vehicle windshields, running parallel to the top of the windshield.

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.
