SAFETY & MAINTENANCE
Our buses have been refurbished to a high mechanical standard, and are subject to the same safety regime as modern vehicles. They are lifted every six weeks for a thorough safety check.
The buses have ‘spy in the cab’ tachographs which keep a record of miles travelled, speed, and drivers’ hours. Records kept from the tachograph may be checked by the DVSA at any time.
DRIVERS AND INSURANCE
Our drivers have PCV (Passenger Carrying Vehicle) licences and many years’ experience. Our buses are all taxed and insured for private hire and have a fully comprehensive public liability insurance.
If you wish to view any of our insurance documents please get in touch with us!
We hold a Public Service Vehicle Operator’s Licence, issued on behalf of the Department of Transport by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). This system is put in place by the British Government to manage the safe operation of buses and coaches. An operator’s licence is needed for a bus to be used commercially.
A licenced operator must satisfy a number of requirements, including demonstrating a satisfactory maintenance regime, appointing a Transport Manager who holds an Operator Certificate of Professional Competence, and holding sufficient financial reserves.
Any of these requirements may be checked by the DVSA at any time.
If you’re thinking of hiring any bus, always ask for the operators’ licence number and check it here. Ours is PD1148652 .
