Prom and Private Hire
Please Note: We no longer offer prom or private hire services.
Due to the current UK regulations on prom transport and the need to be licensed as private hire taxis RR Elite Ltd have now withdrawn from this area of work
During the 2019 Prom Season we Lost over £1,200 so as I am sure you can appreciate it is not commercially viable for us to operate this service.
The main issue is we have been licensed as a company to offer this transport since 2012 but unfortunately the majority of operators offering prom cars do so illegally as they are not licensed with the local authority and thus avoid all the licensing fees and inflated insurance costs.
Councils, Police and Trading Standards have the ability to enforce the law but this doesn’t happen
We have tried to raise this issue with Schools over the last 7 years about informing parents the importance of transport regulations as most parents do not understand the rules, however the schools we have spoken with are not interested in raising this as they feel it’s the parents responsibility to know the law!
Please make sure though that anyone quoting for prom transport needs to be licensed as a private hire operator with the local authority and the vehicle/driver need to hold a current private hire licence otherwise you have no insurance on the vehicle and should the worst happen and the vehicle be involved in an accident you will encounter a lot of issues.
