I’ve heard that limousines are now illegal.
This is a false statement there has been a change in the legislation that allows limousines on the public roads. However these changes only affect the 4x4 and jeep style limousines such as hummers. The legal stance is that they need to have been checked and verified with a Certificate Of Initial Fitness or COIF,this costs in excess of £18k for each limousine. We ensure that all of the vehicles we run are complaint with all of the current legal requirements and as such you can be safe in the knowledge that if for whatever reason our vehicles are pulled up by the Police or VOSA (Vehicle and Operator Services Agency) then there will be no problems and the journey can continue . Vehicles that do not comply with the current legislations can be impounded there and then by VOSA leaving you stranded at the roadside. Therefore we would always recommend booking through Earls LimousinesLtd to ensure that this does not happen to you.
Who you book with is up to you,but we at Earls Limousines will give you one bit of advise,please see below.
If you receive a cheaper quote PLEASE be aware to check that the company is fully licensed and insured. If there is more than 8 passengers that the vehicle carries the appropiate C.O.I.F certificate, which ensures the vehicle is legal to carry over 8 passengers for hire/reward, and meets all U.K regulations. Without this certificate VEHICLES ARE NOT INSURED and therefore you travel at your own risk.
