A wide range of high quality driving and other transport-related courses for voluntary and community groups, schools and public bodies
Did you know that many drivers are now not legally entitled to drive minibuses and could face prosecution if they do so?
For instance: Did you pass your car driving test after January 1997? If so, then you cannot drive many types of minibus currently used in the UK.
Even those people who passed their car test before January 1997 are only allowed to drive minibuses under certain conditions. The rules are complicated and can leave people vulnerable to breaking the law.
Normally, you cannot operate a minibus for ‘hire and reward’ without operating under a special permit or operator’s licence. Again, the rules are complicated and operating a minibus unlawfully can lead to prosecution and fines.
All you need to know is explained in the Driving a minibus leaflet
