If you are planning to hit to town for a big night out, you need to ensure it is fun.
Unfortunately, however, many limo hire companies do not operate under the current UK law.
These laws are vital to your safety because they are in place to protect you.
Appallingly, many of the limo hire vehicles available in the UK not licensed. They ignore the required laws on intentionally.
The majority of UK limousine may only carry eight passengers unless they have a COIF (Certificate of Initial Fitness).
This introduced because of low ceilings sand inadequate safety exits access – extremely dangerous for loaded limos.
The law covers oversized limousines, like stretch Hummer limo hire vehicles, some of which can carry a huge amount of people.
Do not use a company hummer limo hire companies take advantage of the public and police ignorance.
This includes buses, coaches and minibuses that carry passengers for hire.
The COIF is issued by a VOSA certifying officer when the vehicle meets all the relevant PSV requirements.
With Limo-Scene you can be sure that all vehicles are fully insured with a COIF.
