In an industry full of affiliates and out-bound business, it is difficult to determine if an affiliate runs a compliant operation.  Limo & Bus Compliance’s SAFE Certification helps fill that void.

Our SAFE Certification can not be purchased, it must be earned, through a thorough inspection of a company’s policies, procedures, and safety history.

SAFE Certified Companies

  • Pass an annual SAFE Certification Audit
  • Maintain compliance with federal DOT regulations
  • Maintain insurance of $1,500,000 on vehicles 15-Passengers or less and $5,000,000 on vehicles over 15-Passengers
  • Require random drug and alcohol screening of all chauffeurs
  • Conduct annual driving records checks on all chauffeurs
  • Maintain current licensing for their locations
  • Utilize approved vehicle maintenance programs

No longer must an affiliate manager rely on an insurance accord and the claims of a company manager to know how a potential affiliate operates. Every new affiliate carries risk, but help minimize it by only using SAFE Certified companies in your network.

How It Works

  1. A company fills out an application to become SAFE Certified
  2. Required documents are sent to Limo & Bus Compliance for inspection
    • Including Driver Qualification, Motor Vehicle Records, Hours of Service, Drug and Alcohol Testing, Vehicle Insurance Schedule, etc.
  3. Company management is interviewed about current policies and procedures
  4. Limo & Bus Compliance verifies current city/state/federal licensing and DOT Safety rating
  5. Limo & Bus Compliance provides a PASS/FAIL rating and recommended areas for improvement
  6. If a rating of FAIL is presented, the company has 60 days to make the needed corrections
  7. If a rating of PASS is presented, the company receives authorization to use the Limo & Bus Compliance SAFE Certified Seal for a period of one year
  8. Companies who PASS will be listed in the SAFE Certification area of dotbuscompliance.com
  9. Applications may only be submitted once per year, with annual renewals
