Ive received a fixed penalty for entering a bus lane and I am a minbus driver with nine seats including driver am I allowed to use the bus lane? this vehicle is licensed by same local council as a private hire vehicle.
for carrying public who pre book as private hire
I have looked at threads on google eg London and most city councils say 8 seats plus driver is ok to use bus lane so is it dependent on each council and a police officer said to me 8seater plus driver is allowed to use bus lane
