Liphook Auto Services - Minibus Safety Inspection
Do you need a minibus safety inspection for your school bus? If so, why not give us a call to find out how we can solve that problem for you.
If you are using a Minibus for a local education establishment or require an Operators Licence, it may be a requirement from your local authority that your Minibus has additional regular safety inspections. We can carry out those inspections and safety checks for you in our garage workshops in Lindford, near Bordon, in Hampshire. We're located just a few minutes drive from the Farnham/Bordon junction on the A3.
The Minibus Safety Inspection is different to your normal daily and weekly checks and it's in addition to your MOT inspection. They are a detailed inspection of the vehicle, following which the competent mechanic/engineer certifies that the vehicle will maintain its road-worthiness until the next scheduled safety inspection.
Most schools and colleges are operating their minibuses under the Section 19 permit regime and have obtained their permit from either the Community Transport Association or the office of the Traffic Commissioner and will have signed a S19 permit application form stating that regular safety inspections will be carried out.
The required frequency of these inspections will vary depending on factors including the annual mileage covered. The ‘Guide To Maintaining Road-worthiness’ sets out how often the checks should be done for different types of road transport operation, under differing conditions. However, most school/college minibuses should consider having these checks done at intervals no greater than every 10 weeks.
At Liphook Auto Services we are one of the few companies that can incorporate these regular safety inspections into a regular maintenance contract. If you would like further advice on this, please call our expert team on 01420 487346 or email us.
We work in conjunction with Hampshire County Council and TACHODISC To bring you this service. An example minibus safety inspection check sheet can be found here:
