OUR SOUTHEND ON SEA LIMO HIRE IS LEGAL TO OPERATE ANYWHERE IN THE UK
VOSA the the Vehicle & Operators Services Agency, the regulatory arm of the UK Ministry of Transport have stringent regulations governing the hire of all limousines imported to the UK. Currently we are the only legal Hummer Limo hire specialist in Essex, so you can be sure your hire will not end in any unpleasant surprises. Recently we are aware of these 16 passenger limousines being stopped on their night club visits to London and being impounded for not being correctly licensed, bringing misery to unsuspecting clients.
VOSA GETS TOUGH!
Just look at this recent Video on the left showing VOSA destroying unlicensed Limousines!
We're not making this up, the authorities are catching up with illegally operated Limos.
Why are the Ministry enforcing these VOSA requirements? Well these limousines need to meet the road worthiness criteria for safety in the UK. Brian the owner of 1st Direct Cars who operate Limo hire for Southend says:
"These Limos are large and heavy vehicles and do require regulation to ensure the safety of the passengers and the general public.
There are known weaknesses in the build of these limousines - for instance should the brakes fail while going downhill there is no inbuilt mechanism to halt the vehicle. Would you send your children to a school prom knowingly in a limousine not meeting these UK requirements?".
Not only that, chauffeurs are required by Law to use a tachograph to ensure they do not exceed the permitted allowed driving hours.
Check on the windscreen to make sure the Limo you have hired for your Romford outing is Legal. If there is no VOSA Disc showing the Limo may be operating illegally!
Our 16 passenger Hummer Hire Limos are VOSA approved for the roads in the UK, so you are fully legal and covered by insurance when you choose our up to 16 seater Hummer Limos for your special Southend event.
These Limousines have the most luxurious interiors and have state of the art music systems. You can bring your own music for your night out in London, Essex or Kent.

NOTES ON VOSA GUIDANCE FOR OPERATORS OF STRETCH LIMOUSINES
Limousines with more than 8 passenger seats
Traditionally a Limousine of this size required a COIF (Certificate of Initial Fitness) from VOSA in order to be registered and used to carry paying passengers (referred to as "use for hire or reward"). Since April 2009 it has also been possible to apply for Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) or type approval for such vehicles. From 29 October 2010, COIF will no longer be an acceptable route to registration, except for vehicles built more than 3 months prior to this date (i.e. manufactured prior to 29th July 2010).
