I have recently purchased RM1305 currently 799 UXA and are upgrading it a little and wrapping it in red tartan.I am new to the bus game though have lots of old car experience. My wife is already complaining about being a bus widow but I am loving it! The bus was previously used by LD Lines for promotion and we are intending to rent it out for events. It will (sadly)not be carrying fare paying passengers for now but I wondered if anyone could give me any advice on how it should be taxed and what kind of licence would be required to drive it. It will not be used for hire and reward on the road but will be on hire once at the venue. It is currently taxed as a historic and I am led to believe, can be driven on a normal car licence. Can it carry any passengers at all if they are not fare paying and number under 8 and finally, does anyone have any suggestion as to who would be good to approach for insurance? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
