Limo Booking Advice

Stay safe & Book a Legal Limo

Is the limo or vehicle you have just had a quote for legal for your special occasion ?

At Premier Limos we value our service and your safety as a customer when booking either our Limo or Wedding car service for your special occasion, we will only take bookings accordingly to the license we hold for the particular vehicle being booked on hire,

We might not be the cheapest Limo company in Nottingham but we are legal.

We might not be the most affordable limo company in Nottingham but we are Legal and are licensed with Gedling Bough Council for Private Hire & Reward with the appropriate insurance. We have to go via a strict plating test twice a year in order to keep our private hire plate for the limo and our operator’s license that we to obtain each year so we can offer more than just wedding limo hires in Nottingham but to offer you school proms, hen nights & airport transfers. If we did not have this type of license we could only offer you Wedding & Funeral hire, prom season is a busy time of year for limo bookings not only for our selfs but across the country and some wedding car companies are now advertising that they can offer prom hire when in fact they cannot as they do not

If we did not have this type of license we could only offer you Wedding & Funeral hire, prom season is a busy time of year for limo bookings not only for our selfs but across the country and some wedding car companies are now advertising that they can offer prom hire when in fact they cannot as they do not have cover for this type of work, hence the term “wedding car” (weddings only) they might look amazing and perfect for your big arrival but are they and the driver legal ?

Badged drivers license

The stretch limousine is only legally allowed to carry up to 8 passengers and is driven by a Gedling badged chauffeur with an up to date DBS check along with a medical, drivers, safeguarding & knowledge test. This all has to be done in order for us to drive the Limousine under the Private Hire & Reward laws so do please ask the whatever company offering you the service if their drivers are badged and the vehicle plated with their local council.

Our other vehicles on offer are only available for hire for Weddings & funeral hire as they are not plated for hire & reward, so again please check with the company who you are getting a quote from that they have the correct type of license for anything but wedding’s.

Questions to ask

Here are a few tips to ask any company when looking to book a Limousine or vehicle for a special occasion.
