Red Kite manufacture and supply a range of quality, fully Type Approved 9 – 17 minibuses as regulated by the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA). The VCA are UK Type Approval Authority for automotive products and also a designated Technical Service for type approval testing in the United Nations (UN) scheme. VCA is also responsible for certification under UK type approval schemes. All new minibuses must have a certificate of approval and compliance as administered by the VCA. If in doubt, ask to see your documentation prior to delivery from your supplier, as a minibus without a certificate of approval and compliance could go undetected until presented for its first class 5 MOT test.
Red Kite supplies B and D1 licence drivers and fully Type Approved minibuses to organisations including Schools, Colleges, Universities and the Care Sector throughout the UK and have done so since 1982.
Conformity of production (COP)
To monitor the quality of our minibuses we are regularly audited and certified by the VCA to ensure our products Conformity of production (COP) match the specification, performance and marking requirements outlined in the type approval documentation.
