An end to Vintage cars?

Vintage carWith a vintage revival across the wedding industry it is sad that vintage wedding car businesses are now under threat from the Law Commission who are considering removing the existing exemption for wedding and funeral cars for their new private hire regulations.

The new regulations will require vintage car owners and drivers to jump through a number of (expensive) hoops including local authority licensing, special driving tests, medical tests and CRB checks, and while it will increase safety it will also force the smaller operators off the road.

Good luck to all those campaigning, including David Jones of The Vintage and Classic Car Company. Let’s hope a degree of common sense can be employed before this consultation becomes law.
