The DVSA requires holders of a Section 19 Permit to have a 6-month plan of their minibus maintenance schedule that includes services, MOT and minibus safety inspections. On completion of the inspection, the engineer will provide a copy of the inspection checklist that organisations are required to keep for 15 months. When applying for a Section 19 Permit (new or renewal) details of your vehicle maintenance arrangements are required including contracts/agreements from your safety inspections provider.
