Car window tinting laws in Utah were first put into place in 2005.

Utah was the 46th of the 50 states to enact these laws.

On this page we have done our best to collect all of the legal information necessary about your car’s window tint, including how dark the tint is allowed to be and how reflective the tint is allowed to be in Utah. Aside from the basics, like tint percentages, there are also additional car window tinting rules and regulations in Utah that we have made available.

Utah Tint Laws – Legal Darkness Allowed In Utah

The percentage of light that a window tint film allows to pass through your car windows is called the VLT (Visible Light Transmission), and each state has different legal allowable limits. The amount of light allowed to pass through your film and glass in Utah is very specific to the state and is different for Passenger Vehicles and Multi-Purpose Vehicles.

I HIGHER VLT means that more light is allowed to pass through the window tint film.

Example: a 75% tint will allow 75% of the light to pass through whereas a 5% tint will only allow 5% of the light to pass through, making the 5% tint a much darker film.

Legal Tint Darkness Allowed For Passenger Vehicles In Utah:

  • Front Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed above the manufacturer's AS-1 line or top 4 inches.
  • Front seat side windows: up to 43% tint darkness allowed
  • Back seat side windows: Any tint darkness can be used
