Re: Of historical interest?

Re: Requirements for paid driving work

That depends on if the school is run for profit. To say that "school minibuses driven by teachers are not seen as being driven for hire & reward....." is a very sweeping statement! Some of the schools I do driving assessments for are not able to claim Sect 19 permits because they are r...

Re: Requirements for paid driving work
