    Remove headlight - legal?

    If headlight moddified or removed so there's no lights just indicator during the day would this get you pulled or points or somet?

    g/f's a copper and she says it's illegal. if supposed to have em they need to be on and working.....

    but if you get a track bike and daytime ins your fine. is that just for bike's???

    i just looked on the highway code online and it dont say anywhere bout using lights or having them there during the day only at night and in fog or poor weather conditions

    have a look for yourself

    http://www.highwaycode.gov.uk

    id trust your girlfriend though mate end of the day, you dont want to aggrivate the law, they dont like modified cars as it is and look for anything out of place.

    Im pretty sure that "every light that came as standard on ur car, or is on ur car at the moment must be functional" ... that means, not missing.

    I dont think u can have just one headlight.

    as said pop down the station, and speak to the traffic cop or go into a mot test station either will be quicker than taking the light fittment out!
