There are many seat configurations available on minibuses – from 9 to 17 seats. Our most popular seating requirement for nursery schools and pre-schools is a 9 seat minibus from either the Ford or Renault range, but vehicles from Citroen, Volkswagen and Mercedes are available too.
If you are looking for a minibus with 9 or less seats, and are not looking to charge for the service of carrying passengers, you will simply need a driver with a car driving licence to operate your minibus.
We have had customers who were originally looking for a minibus for their nursery business decide to go with a large people carrier such as a Ford Grand C-Max, Kia Carens, Volkswagen Sharan, Seat Alhambra, as this fulfilled their needs more accurately. We can help with sourcing this type of vehicle too.
If you are looking at a minibus with more than 9 seats or will be charging for the service of carrying passengers then you will need to read our dedicated section on driving licences and minibus permits.
