At CVM Minibuses the most common question we get asked by organisations is "Who can drive a minibus?" We know that interpreting information from the DVLA can be difficult and time consuming and we would like to help all those trying to find this answer.
The first place to start is to find out what type of licence the person who would like to drive a minibus has:
The good news for those who hold a pre-1997 D1 category licence is that they can drive any minibus up to 16 passenger seats, with no weight restrictions. CVM minibuses are able to supply a range of new and pre-loved minibuses from across the Ford, Peugeot and Citroen range.
If the person who would like to drive the minibus holds a post-1997 B category licence, the next question you will need to ask is "Is the person over 21 and held the B category licence for two years?
No – the person not over 21 and not held B category licence for two years
If the person is not over 21 and not held the B category licence for two years they will only be able to drive a minibus with up to eight passenger seats and up to 3.5 tonnes in weight. CVM minibuses are able to supply a Volkswagen Shuttle and a Ford Tourneo Custom which both fit the bill for this requirement.
Yes – the person is over 21 and held the driving licence for two years
If the person is over 21 and held the driving licence for two years, you will need to answer this next
Does your organisation run a section 19 permit?
No – the organisation does not run a section 19 permit
If the organisation does not run a section 19 permit then the person wanting to drive the minibus will only be able to drive a minibus with up to eight passenger seats and up to 3.5 tonnes in weight. CVM minibuses are able to supply a Volkswagen Shuttle and a Ford Tourneo Custom which both fit the bill for this requirement.
Yes- the organisation does run a section 19 permit
If the organisation does run a section 19 permit, you have just one more question to answer! Will the minibus have wheelchair access?
No – the minibus will not have wheelchair access
If the minibus will not have vehicle access then the driver will be able to drive a minibus with up to 16 passenger seats and up to 3.5 tonnes in weight. CVM minibuses are able to supply a range of minibuses to fit this requirement including Peugeot Boxer, Citroen Relay, and Ford Transit (15 seater only).
Yes – the minibus will have wheelchair access
If the minibus will have wheelchair access then the driver will be able to drive a minibus with up to 16 passenger seats and up to 4.25 tonnes in weight. CVM minibuses are able to supply the Peugeot Boxer Featherlight, Citroen Relay and Ford Transit (15 seater only).
