Many shy away from proms because you need Hire or reward insurance and VOSA just LOVE to hang around proms especially waiting on limos. You can't even do it as a favour , as that means you expect a favour in return, thus confirming 'reward'.

never realy got that hire or reward thing. if you give say your mates son a lift to a prom in your rod - American car, what if you give a lift in your daily , do you still need hire or reward what if your rod - American car is your daily how does vosa know I can see the problem with limos drove them for 7 years proper taxi licence no more than 8 even in 16 seat hummers, gave it up couldn't stand the agro at proms cant see the problem with taking mates son -daughter to a prom if not getting paid :shake:

Nope, that generally doesn't work out as a problem as you know them and they know you and enough info shared to keep VOSA happy. Doing it for someone you barely, or don't ,know though...

Speak with someone from Surrey Street Rodders , Police wanted to do them for 'doing a favour' , as stated on a radio show , but giving someone they didn't know a lift to a airport ( if I remember correctly) . Yup, load of people with nothing better to do BUT , in this sue happy culture , there's also always someone looking to blame someone else for something to get 'compo'.

Nothing 'bad' will ever happen to any of us will it ? Nothing even simple like a puncture that puts the car in a ditch ,only lightly, and someone bangs their head a little . Amongst ourselves we'd shake it off and laugh .

Police turned up at my Grandaughter's prom last year in a full riot wagon with blues and two's going.

Mind you, they were pretty relaxed about it as when they arrived, door opened and out popped a girl in a prom dress....... & they were happy (or stupid) enough the pose for photos as well...
