LATEST NEWS… Seat belts must now be provided on dedicated school transport in Scotland following introduction of the Seat Belts on School Transport (Scotland) Act 2017.

The Act comes into effect on 1 August which should mean every child has access to a seat belt when travelling to and from school for the start of the 2018/2019 school year.

National guidance and awareness-raising materials have been published online and sent to school authorities and other interested parties with information on seat belt fitting, wearing and monitoring.
