Claire,

Regret we can't help with vehicles from our own collection.

It's not clear whether you're after a bus or a car.

Our buses are not licensed for hire and reward, so while we can run free services in connection with museum events and so on, we can't do private hires. You might like to contact http://www.vintagevehiclehire.co.uk

Hiring a classic car for a school prom is going to be difficult. There is a legal exemption from taxi / private hire car licensing for cars used for weddings, but not for school proms or similar events - the relevant bit of law dates from 1976 when school proms didn't exist this side of the Atlantic.

(Obviously this is my personal interpretation of the law - I'm not a lawyer!)

Regards,

Jonathan (for LVVS)
