    How to get window tint exemption

    I know georgia has an exemption for window tint laws, but i don't know how to get an exemption. How can I go about doing this? In my opinion if I'm gonna have tinted windows I don't want people to see in and right now 15% up front is easily seen through in daylight. I wanna go 5% but am afraid of the laws. I have been pulled over while having 15% and the police did not mention window tint.

    eye doctor. tell him him your eyes hurt at night time from the bright lights. he'll give you a few tests and boom. medically cleared. buddy did it about a year ago. keep the written copy in your vehicle and you are good to go if you get pulled over

    for the record he's been pulled over 6 or 7 times involving his tint. 20% windshield, 5% rear window and 20 on the sides. gets out every time

    The laws are different in every state. With that being said, in Iowa you can only go as dark as 35% on the front windows with a medical excuse. It is like 75%, basically factory smoke glass, without the excuse.

    Is it really worth it though if you are getting pulled over that much?? The hastle wouldnt be worth it for me.

    Get a private investigators license and you can tint it as much as you like, but you will get pulled over constantly

    Re: How to get window tint exemption

    I just tint it and worry about it later... I know a few cops and none of them have ever said anything about tint on my vehicles. My next truck will be 5 all around and 35 on the wind shield.

    Re: How to get window tint exemption

    i have one in georgia and it used to be legal 35 on front and 20 on back with out permit. with permit dark as you wanted. but law change this year. now the permit only covers 20 front and back. with out permit 35. i had to take my 5 off and put 20 on front or pay ticket. i got mine through eye doctor. then you mail it to the state partol office in atlanta ( i think thats where it goes) fro them to approve it. i think it cost a little money to get one now.

    IMO, you guys are the ones that will f**k it up for the rest of us.

    If you don't NEED the tint, just respect your local laws and you don't have to worry about getting pulled over

    Tinting the windshield is retarded. I know at your age it seems cool, I mean, night visibility is overated anyway.

    Keep the tinting with in the legal limits, IMO. Yeah it looks cool but the visiblity, night driving and safety for you and others on the road is more important.

    Re: How to get window tint exemption

    All you tards claiming you lose night time visibility have never had window film on the windshield.

    I have 50% on both of my vehicles and I have a hard time driving without it. The reduction of headlight glare alone is worth the hassle of getting pulled over. I have 20% on the sides and have perfect vision, never had nighttime visibility problems. Ever.
