Hi Jo

You are correct centre or o/s/rear (right hand side) the same side as a steering wheel on a right hand drive UK vehicle.

Paul,

Thanks a lot for the information.

When you say that the "rear fog lamp is required to be fitted to the centre or offside (right hand side) of vehicle", I'm assuming it's the same side where the steering wheel is positioned in UK vehicles, right?

I need to be sure because I have to buy these parts.

Thanks again,

Jo

A rear fog lamp is required to be fitted to the centre or offside (right hand side) of vehicle & must show a steady red light.

Hi.

I'm going to re-register my european vehicle in United Kingdom.

The Application for Commission Notice / Mutual Recognition (VCA) requires me to change the headlights, speedometer and rear fog light to UK specification.

Currently my vehicle's rear fog light is located on the right hand side, and I believe that in UK the rear fog light needs to be on the left hand side. Also it has to be white.

This is my interpretation from The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989.

Could you please confirm this information?

Kind regards,

Joao Espinha
