Registration > Inspections and Emissions > Tinted Windows

New Hampshire law, RSA 266:58-a, allows a vehicle to have aftermarket tinting on windows to the rear of the driver, as long as the light transmittance is not less than 35%. This law also allows persons who require after market tinting on the windshield and on the windows on either side of the driver for medical reasons, as outlined in Administrative Rule Saf-C 2500. This waiver does not allow tinting that is less than 35% light transmittance.
