I didn't pass for my tint in the front but it was the first and last time I ever went to that place. The normal place I go is a town over and they ask if you drove your car here then give you a sticker. Thanks Boonies.

Here in NH, all original equipment must work. But some don't check everything.

if you don't have windows they wont pass you....
it has to be present at the time of inspection....

your best bet is to roll them up and pull the fuse and PRAY they look light enough to pass, otherwise they meter them, and you fail.



and the loophole is older than 79 year model/ classified as collector-antique, then the windows can be solid black if you so choose....

because the lady say only for tinting meaning i don't need a window.

i fail last time when they check it with meter but i came back with out window and bitch.
