Speed Limit Changes for Buses
On of the most popular questions on the Driver CPC course for bus drivers is about speed limits for buses.
The speed limits were changed from the 1st February 2009 that have changed the maximum speed limits for Buses and Coaches when they are travelling on a Motorway or Dual-carriageway.
Motorway / Dual Carriageway Speed Limits for Buses / Coaches
The main points to be aware of are;
1. Single-Deck & Double-Deck Buses travelling on a
Motorway or Dual-carriageway can now travel at a
maximum speed of: 100 km/h
2. Where a Bus or Coach is travelling on a normal road
(not Motorway or Dual-carriageway) the maximum
permitted speed they can travel at remains: 80 km/h
3 As before, where the vehicle is designed or adapted to carry
standing passengers ) the maximum permitted speed they
can travel on any road remains: 65 km/h
