Minibus Safety Inspections with Castle Minibus
What are minibus safety inspections and why do schools need them? Marianne from Castle’s compliance team explains.
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).
