The DRL are supposed to switch off when headlights are on as they are too bright for use in the dark, unless they are the type that dim with headlights on.

Soeley is correct, but just to add this in the vehicle lighting regulations, so not just Suzuki being awkward :laugh:
Yes I suppose it can be done if you wire a new power feed controlled via a relay from the headlamp, but you may not get an MOT when it's time.

I was reading about drls on the gov website.

Has anyone on here opted for having their DRL switched off when the indicator is operating?

It seems to defeat the purpose of having DRLs and being visible to me!

"It seems to defeat the purpose of having DRLs and being visible to me!"
As a dispatch rider ,these DRL have made the motorcycle invisible in day time ....bikes have had h/ lamps on for years to make them stand out on the second glance . Now we just are another thing!
If everyone has there lights on it becomes normal and then unnoticed ...hi viz vests are a case in point! If fact I have never worn one and stand out because of it.
The turning off of DRL , refered to in the text in gov topic is to tell people to ACTUALLY TURN YOUR BLOODY LIGHTS ON,! We have all seen muppets in the rain , dusk, dawn usually in a dark or grey car with their DRL on but no rear lights because they see an illuminated dashboard and light at the front.....some have the lights on automatic but the sensors don't pickup the type of poor lighting ..ie:road spray.
As for Range Rover , Audi etc that have one DRL change to an indicator when turning that defeats the object.

DRLs on all cars have to turn off when the headlights are on, as they don't have a non-dazzling beam pattern, so don't try to rig them to stay on.

The Jimny doesn't need to switch the DRLs off when the indicators are working as the two lights have a good amount of physical separation and aren't likely to be confused. Important feature in other cars where they're very close together (or use the same LEDs!).
