School/Young Persons' Groups

AN ADULT MUST BE ON BOARD BEFORE THE GROUP LOADS
especially on vehicles where there are internal steps to a continental door.

We would ask the organisers of the above groups to note the following items :-

1)   An adult should be seated by all exit doors With the amendment to the seat belt legislation from 18th September 2006 adults should be seated throughout the coach to assist with undoing of seat belts in the event of an emergency exit situation.

2)   From 18th September 2006 it is law in the United Kingdom that seat belts must be worn where fitted for all passengers over the age of 14. It is the passenger's responsibility to ensure they do so and they are liable to be fined if the coach is stopped by the police and they are not compliant. Teachers and all leaders should be made aware of this.

3)   All passengers should remain seated at all times the vehicle is moving and notify the driver if leaders/teachers need to move around the vehicle.

4)   A passenger list is carried with a copy placed on the  dashboard of the vehicle prior to departure. This should also have an emergency contact name and telephone number.

5) From 1st July 2007 smoking is prohibited on coaches by law to provide a "smoke free environments for all passengers"

All private hire bookings

We would ask you to remain quiet at the start of the journey so that our driver can introduce him/herself and explain the necessary safety information.

From the 18th September 2006 it is law in the United Kingdom that seat belts must be worn where fitted for all persons over the age of 14.

It is the passenger's responsibility to ensure they do so and they are liable to be fined if the coach is stopped by the police and they are not compliant.
