Prom Party Bus Rental Laws

Party Buses are fun. They are a superb way of entertaining yourself and your friends while celebrating a school prom or homecoming.

In the US, the party buses must pass DOT and state inspections. The drivers hired to drive the party buses must be appropriately licensed and endorsed.

Party Bus Driver Laws

In California, Party Bus drivers must attain a class B or class A license with passenger endorsement. The commercial drivers could still be restricted from driving the buses of different passenger capacity. Check with the transportation service provider if their driver is properly licensed to drive the bus you will be renting. State of California requirements for commercial driving for school events can be checked at the DMV`s website.

Party Bus Inspection Laws -- SPAB & PAB Requirements

Many US states could have more lenient laws for party bus inspections for school event rentals. However, California has some of the strictest bus laws for school event rental buses. A transportation provider must obtain a pupil activity bus certification (PAB) to rent any bus or party bus to a parent or student (over the age of eighteen) for a school-related event. However, if a party bus provider wants to rent a bus to school management for a prom or a formal — and other school events — the party bus provider must receive a school pupil activity bus (SPAB) certification from CHP. We encourage people to check the California state laws that govern school-related rentals at the CHP`s website.

Party Bus Safety Tips

Party Buses are commonly referred to as party-on-wheels. However, we at Global Limos recommend not to dance or move around in a bus while it`s driving. Students can safely dance on a bus after asking the driver to stop and park at a safe place. Always ask the limousine service providers or the bus providers to show you a proof of adequate insurance. You should also ask them to give you proper inspection paperwork for the bus. Prom Party Bus Rentals are fun! But, we could get our viewers to understand that safety always comes first.
