What is MORC?

This resource is “live” and constantly updated in time with changing legislation to help you keep up-to-date, stay compliant and manage a minibus within the law.

Minibus laws and regulations can dramatically change from one organisation to another depending on individual circumstances and this is what normally causes the all the confusion! However, MORC is different as it's divided up into operator sections and only provides the relevant information that directly relates to your organisation, whether you're a business or a non-for-profit charity...

The alternative solution, MORC will help you to confidently manage a minibus within the laws that only apply to your organisation.
