Can I drive a Minibus?
Whether or not you can drive a minibus and which minibuses you’re able to drive depends on several factors, including when you passed your car driving test, the number of passenger seats in the vehicle and whether you are paid to drive (“hire or reward”). You may be able to apply for a permit if you’re driving for a noncommercial body, like charities or schools. There may also be restrictions on the maximum weight of the minibus.
