What is a Minibus Safety Inspection Checklist?

A minibus safety inspection checklist is what engineers complete when they do a safety inspection. This checklist lets the school know if there are any problems with the vehicle. Minibus Safety Inspections are required under a Section 19 Permit and need to be completed by a qualified engineer every 10 weeks (or 6 weeks for vehicles over 12 years old) regardless of mileage.

Owners of minibuses also need to complete daily/weekly checks to ensure the vehicles are ready to be driven, and there are no faults or issues. Rivervale Minibus has a free minibus safety checklist app that drivers can download with a 12-point and 40-point checklist that they can then send to their designated transport manager to be managed and filed.
