The "Virginia Tuck" is, if I recall correctly, backed by a couple of judicial precedents. Essentially, the judge asked the arresting officer: "How did you determine that the defendant was illegally concealing a weapon on the premises?" Officer: "I saw the grip of the weapon." Judge: "If you saw it, it wasn't concealed. Case dismissed."
No, it is not explicitly codified in the law anywhere.
Use the VA Tuck if that line of reasoning if good enough for you, otherwise get a paddle holster and keep it in the car. Personally, I am going to get some sort of relatively inexpensive cross-draw holster for driving anyway, so I would probably use that if I felt uncomfortable with the VA Tuck.
