Window Sun-screening For Medical Reasons

Due to certain medical conditions, some drivers may need to have the windows of their vehicles tinted or "sun-screened" in a way that is not legal for other drivers. This page explains how to certify your need for sun-screening and get a medical exemption certificate from the MVC for a specific vehicle.

  • First you need Form MR-15: Request for Medical Exemption to Apply Vehicle Sun-screening [pdf]. You may also request this form by phone at (856) 853-4115.
  • A licensed physician must answer the questions on the form and sign it.
  • Mail completed forms to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, West Deptford Regional Service Center, 215 Crown Point Road, Suite 100, West Deptford, NJ 08086.
  • Within three to six weeks, the MVC will mail you a medical exemption certificate that authorizes you to have specially sun-screened windows. The certificate is only valid for one driver and one vehicle, both of which are specified on the card.
  • Sun-screening businesses are required to check your "medical exemption certificate" before applying sun-screening that is not permitted under ordinary circumstances. All window tints must meet New Jersey guidelines to pass inspection.
