Answer for TfL's Equipment Guidelines

Answered By: 
The Mayor

All vehicles presented for inspection with aftermarket electronic devices and equipment installed require a declaration to be signed by the person presenting the vehicle. In the majority of cases, vehicles are presented without any additional equipment in place.

At present, TfL does not hold the list of signed declarations in a reportable format, as it is confirmed at the point of inspection. This process is being reviewed.
