Abolish burdens on volunteer drivers to sports events

Comment 1st August 2010

The Welsh Sports Association believes that Government should abolish the requirement under the Local Transport Act 2008 that volunteers driving children to an event even in a small car require a  Section 19 Permit from the Vehicle & Operator Services Agency (VOSA)if they are taking contributions from the passengers towards the cost of fuel. This is a totally unnecessary bureaucratic burden

Why does this matter?

Because it dissuades volunteers and makes it more difficult for children – particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds in participating in sport
