Manchester-based Limo-Scene publishes important legal information about hiring limos for School Proms

Press release from: Limo-Scene & Wedding Cars

Manchester limo hire company Limo-Scene is publishing information to ensure bogus limo hire companies are not misleading parents.

With Prom season just around the corner, hundreds of parents are hiring limousines for their children.

Many people who hire limousines in the UK don't know that many companies operate illegally. They are not properly licensed and not properly covered by insurance.

In order to make hiring a limousine an enjoyable experience, customers need the confidence of using a company, which is fully licensed and insured.

It is their responsibility to make sure their limos are safe and meet all guidelines currently set by the government.

A Prom Night should be a lot of fun and a night to remember. However, you need to be aware of some very important laws that many UK limousine operators are breaking.

Laws such as these ensure safety, but show the credibility of a limo hire company.

Jacqueline Jolliffe, from fully licensed company Limo-Scene & Wedding Cars, said: “Shockingly, around 50 per cent of limousines available for hire throughout the UK are not licensed properly.

“These companies know the law and choose to ignore it – which could actually result in the limousine being taken off the road while you are in it.”

The majority of limousines are restricted to carrying no more than eight passengers unless they have COIF (Certificate of Initial Fitness).

This law was originally introduced because low ceilings and inadequate safety exits made overcrowded limos dangerous.

The Vehicle Operator Service Agency (VOSA), which issues the licences, will not recognise stretch limos as legal if the safety requirements at not met.

This includes the oversized limousines, such as Hummer, some of which are say they are up to twenty-eight passengers.

Many limo hire companies are taking advantage of the public and police ignorance of the passenger laws and operate illegally.

VOSA has the power to remove vehicles from the road even while they are in operation.

Vehicles need to have a certificate of initial fitness (COIF) to be classified as a Passenger Carrying Vehicle. Many Hummer limos have now passed these to qualify for the COIF.

It is even more important now that you check before reserving a limousine in the UK for your special occasion because there are government initiatives to prevent vehicles from being registered if they do not meet legal requirements.

Hire a limo with a company that has fully registered vehicles - like Limo-Scene & Wedding Cars.

Limo-Scene’s vehicles are safe and legal – with a selection of large of small limos and wedding cars, all of which are fully licensed.

Limo hire and wedding car hire from Limo-Scene is available throughout the North West, including, but not restricted to:

Limo Hire Manchester, Bolton, Stockport, Warrington, Runcorn, Walkden, Worsley, St Helens, Macclesfield, Crewe, Blackpool, Preston, Liverpool, Skelmersdale, Cheshire.
