HC Deb 30 July 1984 vol 65 cc76-7W
27. Mr. Yeo

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is the present level of licence fee charged to long-distance coach operators.

Mrs. Chalker

All bus and coach operators pay a fee for their operators licence, at a rate of £42 per vehicle per year. They also pay the "Hackney Carriage" rate of vehicle excise duty, which is £45 per vehicle per annum for the first 20 seats plus 90p for each additional seat. International coach services may require authorisations, which cost £110 per application plus, in the case of regular services £25 per year for authorisations to cover subsequent amendments.
