Education and Inspections Act 2006

Section 85: Further amendments relating to travel to schools etc.

417.This section refers to a number of mainly consequential amendments contained in Schedule 10. The only substantive amendment relates to section 6 of the Transport Act 1985, which provides an exemption from a general requirement for bus services to be registered with the Traffic Commissioner. The amendment means that school bus services operated under sections 508B(1), 508C(1) 508F(1), 509(1) or (1A), or 509AA(7)(b) or 9(a) of, or Schedule 35C to, the 1996 Act, are exempted from the requirement imposed by the Transport Act 1985 to be registered with the Traffic Commissioner, as is currently the case with closed school bus services not levying fares.

418.The Schedule also details the changes made to section 509 of the 1996 Act so that it becomes a ‘Wales only’ provision.
