OUR WEDDING CAR PRICING
When it comes to wedding car hire we always try to be as competitive as possible. We understand the huge cost involved in putting together your big day.
We always quote a fixed price, with no hidden or additional charges.
The last thing you need to be worrying about, on your wedding day, are additional costs because of delays and overruns in your itinerary.
So, no need to worry we understand despite planning your wedding day for months or years, that the best laid plans can go astray.
For this reason, we restrict hire of each wedding car to just one engagement per car.
So, having just one booking means we won’t ever need to rush off anywhere.
So, wedding car hire, from us, allows you to relax and be assured that we will be with you until all our duties are discharged to your satisfaction.

WEDDING CAR HIRE REGULATIONS
Selecting the correct wedding day transport provider is important. Apart from a beautiful car of your dreams, you want a company that is licensed and insured to provide the service.
NTA = National Transport Authority
SPSV = Small Public Service Vehicle
The Wedding car Company
- must always have a tax cleared status

The Wedding Car
- To be even considered for use as a Wedding Car/Limousine the proposed vehicle must first be on an NTA list of approved contemporary vehicles, suitable for Limousine use, or be a prestigious older vehicle suitable for ceremonial type work.
- There is no upper age limit on vehicles used for Limousine work.
- The Limousine must undergo an NTA ‘Initial Suitability Test’, and pass. The vehicle is then issued with a limousine license. The suitability test is repeated annually in the case of vehicles less than 10 years old or manufactured before 1980. Vehicles within these parameters are tested every 6 months.
- The ‘Suitability Test’ is not a mechanical test but rather a check on the aesthetics of the car. The car has to be maintained always to the high standard suitable for it to be involved in the prestigious work undertaken by Limousines
- Prior to undertaking the suitability test, a vehicle must be taxed, have current SPSV specific insurance, current NCT certification. The Company must also have a tax cleared status.
When the ‘Suitability Test’ is passed the tester applies NTA issued, ‘Tamper Proof’ discs on the windscreen and rear window. The purpose of these discs discs is to give the public easy access to the licensing conditions of the vehicle. The vehicle license details, including the number of passengers that that it is can carry are noted on the discs.
- All Limousines must have current discs displayed in order to operate legally.
- Any person wanting to drive in the Limousine industry must have a current full Irish ‘B’ driving licence and a current SPSV licence.
- To obtain an SPSV licence a driver must pass an ‘SPSV Driver Entry Test’ which covers two modules, ‘Area Knowledge ‘and ‘Industry Knowledge’. The driver pass both modules.
- When the test is passed an application can be made for an SPSV license to An Garda Síochána. Part of the licensing procedure involves the applicant being subject of Garda vetting. The applicant must also have at this stage, and maintain in the future, a tax cleared status. The driver renews their SPSV license every 5 years.
