Minibus Permit - ALL Groups

31st March 2014

All Scout Groups, Districts and Counties who operate (own, borrow or hire), a minibus require a Standard Bus Permit so that voluntary groups can charge or accept a form of remuneration for providing transport for their own members, without having to comply with the full PSV operator licensing or PCV driver licensing requirements.

New Minibus permits are valid for five years and have the expiry date written on the permit (looks like a tax disc). It is the responsibility of the individual Group/District and County to renew these minibus permits.

Permits issued under the previous scheme (those with no expiry date) will cease to be valid after 6th April 2014.

New permits can be purchased via the Scout Info Centre at a cost of £5.00; there is information on the Scout Association website with FAQs and an application form.

A reminder that where Referees are required for an Adult Application, one must be from outside Scouting and NO member of the Applicants Scout Group/Unit can be used.

To quicken the process and hopefully get References returned more quickly, I can now e-mail the reference forms directly to referees. 
Please ask your referees if they have an email address and ensure this is clearly printed on the Application form.
