These safety inspections are required in addition to regular services and MOTs and you must be able to provide evidence of completed checks for up to 15 months.

FAQs

Why do we need regular safety inspections?2021-09-01T14:52:59+00:00

They are a requirement under a Section 19 Permit in addition to MOTs and services. Recommended every 10 weeks (regardless of milage) for minibuses under 12 years old and every 6 weeks for vehicles 12 years and older.

Who can complete a minibus safety inspection?2021-09-01T14:55:54+00:00

A ‘qualified’ engineer needs to complete your safety inspections and ideally it should not be the engineer that complete services and MOTs. If an issue is identified this should not be resolved as part of the inspection.

Do the 6 or 10 week safety inspection replace the daily walk-around checks?2021-09-01T15:01:57+00:00

No, these checks are in addition to the daily walk around checks, MOTs and services.

How long does a safety inspection last?2021-09-01T15:03:55+00:00

A proper safety inspection should take 45-60 mins.

Do I need to keep records of my safety inspections?2021-09-01T15:07:45+00:00

Yes, you need to not only keep records that these inspections are completed for 15 months but also have 6-month plan in place for MOTs, services and inspections.
