Sorry for the awful pun, but it is imperative you know who is taking your children to the school prom.
Of course, if your friends or family want to take your child in your own vehicle, that’s fine. You know them and no money is changing hands.
It’s when cold, hard cash comes into the equation that things change. Once money changes hands that then becomes driving for hire or reward and depending on the circumstances the driver/operator may need a PHV licence.
Weddings & Funerals are exempt from this licencing (although there are insurance implications) however proms are not. Anyone taking money for prom transport to a fall under the private hire regulations and should be licenced appropriately. This should also include a DBS check, where the individual’s background has been checked to make sure they are suitable to be working around vulnerable people and minors.
Kev’s Kampers don’t have this private hire licencing – that’s why we offer self-drive for prom transport. That way not only do you get to see your teenager in all their glory but you have the chance of more value for money by having the vehicle for at least 3 days – that’s a family weekend campervan getaway!
A 3 night hire costs £399 including insurance for two drivers and unlimited mileage. We have extra availability this year as Glastonbury isn’t on – that’s normally around prime school prom time. So, check your prom transport has the right licencing with your local council – or check suppliers such as PromDay Online.
