You want your vehicle to look amazing on the road, but certainly don’t want to have issues with the law while doing so. Here are few things to know about just how dim your tints should be if you’re in Nevada, in accordance to the laws implemented in 1993.
Tint Options for Sedans, SUVs, and Vans
Have you ever heard of Visible Light Transmission (VLT)? It is the amount of light permitted to enter your vehicle’s windows. In Nevada, the law is more particular when it comes to regulating this aspect of window tinting, so there are different parameters that apply to different types of vehicles.
Sedans, SUVs, and vans generally follow the same rule, stating that the front side windows of a car must allow over 35 percent of light in. Any level of tint can be used for the backside windows and the rear window.
As for the windshield, a non-reflective tint is permitted as long as it’s above the vehicle manufacturer’s AS-1 line (generally standing at 4 inches from the top of the windshield). No matter the darkness chosen to stay within those limits, red and amber shades are illegal.

There are also reflective tints. With these, incoming light will be reflected away, allowing less light and heat to enter the vehicle. Although some states have laws regulating the extent a tint can reflect light, luckily Nevada holds no restrictions on reflectivity in its current law.
Exceptions for Medical Conditions
Although Nevada’s laws place restrictions on the darkness of window tinting, there are some exceptions reserved for the vehicles of those with special needs. If a driver has a skin condition or a medical condition that makes them extra sensitive to light and the sun’s UV Rays, the current law can accommodate their particular condition by allowing for darker tints.
Each circumstance calls for a different application. For instance, someone suffering with a disease, like skin cancer, is allowed to have darker window tints that can increase their protection from the sun’s harmful rays. The medical condition must be supported by medical documentation as proof to be approved prior to getting an authorization.
Safety is Key
Window tints don’t just help with skin conditions, they also assist in reducing the strain on one’s vision. However, tints must be applied with the utmost care to assure that a driver’s vision isn’t negatively affected while on the road.
