Transporting Children in a Car Policy

The safety of your child is paramount and I have therefore put together the following procedures regarding the transportation of children in my car.


I have a full, clean driving license, which is available for you to see on request

I will ensure my car is in road worthy condition by having it regularly serviced by a reputable garage

I will ensure it complies with all legislation, MOT, Car Tax etc

I will ensure it is covered by Business Use, Car Insurance and the Certificate is available for you to see

I will ensure all car seats are correctly fitted, age and stage appropriate for the children using them and that they are correctly strapped into them

I will ensure that the child safety locks are in use on my car

I will always carry a mobile telephone with me in case of an emergency but will not answer it whilst driving. I will return calls on my return

I will always carry identification for me and the minded children in case of an emergency

I will always carry a First Aid kit in the car in case of an emergency

I will never leave a child unattended in a car, they will ALWAYS be in sight if I have to go and get a parking ticket for example, if this is not possible I will take the children with me.

I will teach your child about the dangers of cars and roads, in an age appropriate way.

I will advise you in advance if I am making any special trips or long trips in the car.

If your child suffers from travel sickness please let me know immediately.
