6f FAQs: Use of private cars

Where transporting young people in private cars is considered, checks should be made to address the following:
• seeing evidence that the driver has a valid licence.
• seeing evidence that there is a valid insurance policy covering the intended use. This requires that the vehicle owner has “business use” cover.
• seeing evidence that the vehicle is properly maintained and has an MOT.
• ensuring that there is explicit parental consent to transport young people in this way.
• ensuring that drivers properly understand their duty of care in this situation.
