Please be assured, at Silver Screen Services all our staff adhere to the latest legal requirements for the operation of a passenger vehicles. We take this very seriously and are in the process of establishing a new professional body to raise the standard in our industry

Your Safety is Utmost Priority!
Our vehicles are highly maintained. They are subject to Periodic Maintenance Inspections (Sometimes referred to as P.M.I.’s or Safety Inspections) every six weeks, the shortest interval between inspections of any Operator working in Media Productions. Those inspections are in addition to the annual M.O.T. which is a full P.S.V. test, not a Class V test which would be insufficient for vehicles used for “Hire and Reward” under an “O” Licence.
