Minibus Safety Inspections with Castle Minibus

If you operate a minibus under a Section 19 Permit, you are required to carry out regular minibus checks and inspections.  Safety inspections, completed by an independent qualified engineer, need to be completed every 10-weeks (6 weeks for vehicles over 12 years).

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.

The system of safety inspections must be regularly monitored particularly in the early stages. You should be prepared to change the frequency of checks as appropriate based on your monitoring. Records of any remedial work carried out should be kept for at least 15 months.’
