School and Community Minibus
The school and community rallied together to raise funds to buy a mini bus and it is used by both.
It is a 17 seater Transit Minibus
If you or your organisation would like to use the mini bus please ring 01981 240432 to check availability and make arrangements.
DVLA information states you may drive a minibus with up to 16 passengers provided:
- you drive on behalf of a non commercial body for social purposes but not for hire or reward
- you are aged 21 or over; (drivers over 70 will need to make a special application which involves meeting higher medical standards).
- If you have a full D1 licence or a D1 (101) entitlement on your licence (because your licence was issued before 1st January 1997) you can drive a 17-seater minibus and can do so for hire or reward.
- you are providing your service on a voluntary basis; and
- the minibus maxium weight is not more than 3.5 tonnes excluding any specialist equipment for the carriage of disabled passengers.
