Passenger cars vs. multi-purpose vehicles

If you’re trying to figure out what kind of car window tint laws apply to your vehicle. Then it’s likely either a “Passenger Car” or multi-purpose van. These two types fall under different classifications and as such have varying regulations with regards to how darkly colored. The glass can be on their windows before restrictions come into effect in certain areas for each type respectively. This means there may not necessarily be an outright. Answer about whether one will work within another without checking which classification best suits yours!

In all of our state law pages, we display this as “sedans” and “SUVs/vans” for clarity.

How to tell if your vehicle is a passenger car or MPV

Federal regulations require every vehicle to be registered with a label that can be found on the left front door panel. This is how you know if your car, truck, or van makes it into either passenger cars or multi-purpose vehicles!

Federal identification numbers (FIBDNs) are what identify different types of vehicles throughout Canada and the United States under federal law. For example, trucks have their own identifier while motorcycles use “ML” instead. We call these classification labels because they classify each object according to its function in society. Some examples might include Class 1 meaning heavy-duty commercial service buses. Large enough so passengers cannot stand upright inside them. Class 3 refers specifically to private light vans but not including pickups made by Chevrolet…

Your vehicle should have an ID label that shows its federal classification.

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a code that uniquely identifies your car.

Which vehicles are “passenger cars”?
The Passenger Car federal vehicle classification includes sedans, coupes, and convertibles. It can also refer to station wagons or hardtops!

The law defines Passenger Cars as:

A passenger car is a vehicle that can carry at least nine people and not more than eleven. All these cars have motive power, but some are low speed while others allow for multiple uses like motorcycles or trailers.

Which vehicles are “multi-purpose vehicles”?
Multi-purpose vehicles are a class of vehicles that can be used for many different purposes. They include SUVs, recreational vehicles (RV), pickups panels vans campers sport utility, and similar types of cars or trucks with at least four wheels.

The law defines MPVs as:

A multipurpose passenger vehicle is a type of motorized car that can seat 10 people at once. This means they are not only limit to carrying passengers. But also have the ability for other uses such as transporting cargo or even being use off-road in rural areas where an RV would be too big and cumbersome.
Multiposter vehicles come with special features so users won’t need any extra gear when going on these types journeys outside city limits.

When it comes to visibility, an MPV’s windows are not as important. Because they have a rear window that is up high and cannot be tinted by law under 70% VLT on the backside of both sides. Even though this makes them seem like just another car in their class with darker shades available at any factory-installed darkness level desired!

Other vehicle types
Other vehicle types can include truck, bus, motorcycle, and trailer. A low-speed vehicle is any type of conveyance that has an average top speed of fewer than 25 miles per hour (40 kilometers).

Vehicle manufacturers determine what classifies a vehicle. Owners of crossovers should refer to their ID label for confirmation that they have purchased an appropriate classification. Such as SUVs or pickups from this manufacturer.

How is minimum tint transmittance determine?
NHTSA requires that at least 70% of a vehicle’s windows be make up of visible light transmittance (VLT) in order to qualify as compliant with federal standards. As specified by 49 CFR §571-205(a), this minimum requirement applies only when testing an assembled window unit. So if you want your car or truck certified on these specifications then don’t forget about installing those tinted film shields!

Does this mean all window tint with 70% is legal?
It’s true that aftermarket glazing is not permit in most states. It can have a darkening effect on your windows and may put you outside of the 70% threshold for VLTs (visibility).

Tinting laws vary from state to state, but there are some general rules that apply. The main difference between manufactured or factory tint and aftermarket TINTS is how dark. They can be before it becomes illegal for your car’s windows in each respective region (state).

It is important you read those specific regulations and make sure only legal types or amounts can be applies before getting tinting started!
