Kentucky Window Tint Law

The Kentucky Window Tint Law is also a very good one but is different than ours and neighboring states. It also allows for a medical exemption. This page helps explain it for you.

DT Services Window Tinting LLC solidly supports the efforts of Law Enforcement to provide a safe driving experience to the Hoosier public.  These devoted individuals are committed to our  welfare and the overall public interest.

Therefore, we do all we can to keep our clients in compliance with our current state law.
