    You need to apply for permission from TfL even if it's facing towards the road the compliance officers are now handing out warnings over this

    Where did u get ur information from. Dashcam is from insurance company. It will invalidate the insurance without dashcam.

    When you go for yearly PHV test, they will pass fitted dash cam as long as on approved list and installed in correct position with audio switched off

    That should be enough approval from TFL

    TFL Compliance Officers on the whole are jobsworths or wannabes and not worth worrying about as long as your badge, papers and car are in order

    Incorrect. It should not be blocking any of your vision to the road. You can also have a camera installed without screen to face inside the car to act out as a cctv. All you need is a data controller certificate only costs 35 a year from information commissioners office

    Although I know about this rule, there is no way I am turning off the Audio! Fk that. Even at the inspection they have never said anything to me, and if they do, I'll say "I'm not working, I'm having an inspection"! Its my car, I'll do what I like with it.

    How did you wire it? From the fuse box or lighter socket? Would you post a picture? Thanks.

    No one ever in 4 yrs told me anything about location of camera or location of phone holder.

    Never been taken for licencing.

    Dash cam wire run under trim and plugged into rear power socket.

    Both are placed in a way that don't obstruct a view.
