Must you use No Smoking in Your cars?

A question we are often being asked when doing our inspections is, ‘Must we still use the no smoking signs in our limousines’?  The answer is: yes.

Although certain ‘smoke free’ regulations differ between Scotland and England, basically if your car is used for private hire, then you should display a 70mm ‘No Smoking’ sign, which is a burning cigarette on a white background within a red circle and red cross through it.

Non-compliance can result on an on the spot fine of £200 – maximum of £1,000 if taken to court.
