By law you can not apply any window film to the front driver or front passeger windows unless you obtain a Medical Sun-Screening license from the NJ State Motor Vehicle Commisiion.  For Medican Sun-Screening guidelines see below.
 
 
 
State of New Jersey Medical Sun-Screening Guidelines:
 
 
With a Medical Sun-Screening license you can apply window film to your front windows based on these guidelines.
 
Windshield - You can apply a clear (UV) film which has a visible light transmission of 70% and a visible light reflection of 8%.  What this means.  This means that you can apply clear film to your windshied which will decrease the amount of light transmission by 30%.  This film will provide a 99% UV light reduction.
 
Front Windows - You can apply a shade window film which has a 60% visible light transmission and 8% visible light reflection.  What this means.  This means that you can apply a window film that will block 40% of visible light transmission.  A 60% window film is a very light colored film which will block 99% of UV rays and provide you with minimal darkening of the glass.  Please note that a 60% window film is lighter than your typical "smoke" film. 
 
 
Each piece of glass that is tinted for a medical purpose must have a small decal with the installers information applied.  This will be done for each piece of glass. 
 
 
*Please be aware that NJ DMV Inspection Stations use a window film meter to test the window film during your cars inspection.  If these guidelines are not followed your car will fail the inspection.
