Vehicle_Maintenance



The vehicles​ have a set maintenance schedule, which we hope keeps them in good roadworthy condition, with little time off-the-road as possible, so they can be used as much as possible.

As some vehicles are operated under Small Bus Permits and Car Share​, we are required to do a walk-around check daily, an examination every 10 weeks, and a full service annually. Further to this, minibus​ require an MOT annually from new, but vehicles with 9 or fewer seats (Car, 9 Seat MPV, 9 Seat Van, Van) only require MOTs annually from three years from registration.

As a result, the schedule we have chosen is consistent will all our vehicles:

​Check Type​Person Responsible / Conducting Test​Frequency of Test
Walk-around​Driver / Driver​Before each journey
Inspection​​Union Reception / Garage Technician​Every 8 weeks
​Service​Union Reception / Garage Technician​Anually
MOT​​Union Reception / Garage Technician​Anually after 3 years (from new for Minibuses)
