Mini bus permits
A number of years ago the Government announced that, in order to fit in with EU law, any organisation that uses a minibus, whether its own or one that is hired, must carry a valid minbus permit when being driven, or your insurance is invalid.
The permits are not expensive, a one-off £11 fee and it covers the organisation, in our case each Brigade company, not the vehicle, so it can be used on any minibus the Brigade company might use.

We cannot stress how important this is. Without a valid minibus permit in the bus when it is being used, your group will not be insured.
