If you are looking to go on holiday, or need to take a group out for the day; Bognor Motors can supply you with a 9 seat minibus or a 17 seat minibus.
Most of our vehicles are under a year old, and have Bluetooth hands free telephone technology, and all of them are air conditioned.
All minibuses with more than eight passenger seats or over 3.5 tonnes, registered after 1 May 2006 are legally required to have a digital tachograph fitted. Minibuses which can carry 9 or more persons (including the driver) and are used on journeys to or from the continent or the Republic of Ireland, come within the scope of European Union (EU) and other international regulations governing international bus and coach journeys.
Driving a minibus abroad requires compliance with more complex legislation. Post 1 January 1997 licence cannot be used in any circumstances unless the necessary PCV test has been passed and an unrestricted D1 category added.
EU Regulations also require that a tachograph must be used from the start of the journey in the UK, with a new disc for each day, continuing until the end of the return journey to the UK. There must be one chart per driver per driving day. There are heavy fines for failing to correctly use a tachograph. Deliberate falsification of a tachograph can also result in imprisonment.
The new digital tachograph unit operates by use of a driver’s card which is inserted into the driver card slot located in the front of each unit. Each driver has his or her own individual card and should be used and kept with the driver at all times when undertaking any driving activity with a vehicle equipped with a tachograph unit. Driver’s cards are available from the DVLA at a cost of £38 each and will last for a period of 5 years.
