Do you want a millionaire’s lifestyle, the opulence and glamour of being chauffeur driven in a limousine? You can emulate that experience with added sparkle and pop when you hire a limo with Lavish Limousines.
Why? Because it’s perfectly legal to drink in a limo in WA as long as you bring your own alcohol.
Talk about an experience with added fizz! At Lavish Limousines, people often ask about the laws surrounding drinking in a hired limo. As one of the leading Perth stretch limo companies, we’ve gone to great lengths (excuse the pun) to explain why anyone hiring a limo with a chauffeur can enjoy alcoholic beverages.
What are the laws surrounding drinking in limos?
Hire stretch limousines, wedding cars and small buses licensed by The Department of Transport operating in WA, are exempt from state street drinking laws – as long as the vehicles accommodate fourteen passengers or less.
You can legally crack open a can or bottle if you yourself have brought it on board. The alcohol needs to be BYO. The onus is on you to bring it. The relaxed liquor laws came about as a result of the Liquor Controls Regulation in WA.
No need to worry about corkage fees at Lavish Limousines – we never charge. We offer all guests ice, soft drinks, waters and glass champagne flutes.
Can you drink alcohol as a passenger in a car?
Many of you are thinking: ‘What if I drink alcohol in my own car in WA?’ Whether driver or passenger, it’s a strict no-go. It’s a red-flag offence. You could face severe financial penalties.
Laws about passenger drinking vary from state to state in Australia, so wherever you’re driving, you need to be familiar with state specific rules. In West Australia, it’s illegal to drink in a car and on a street.
You’ll need to put the brakes on if you want to drink alcohol on a party bus – that’s also not allowed. It’s only smaller charter vehicles that are exempt. It’s similar to bringing alcohol into an unlicensed, BYO restaurant.
