What is classed as a minibus?

  • A vehicles with between 9 and 16 seats including the drivers seat, will generally be classed under this people carrier category.
  • A vehicle with 16 seats or more is normally classified as a coach or bus.
  • We offer cover for commercial and private vehicles and multi purpose vehicles (MPV's) these vehicles normally seat from 6 to 9 passengers.

What type of licence do I need to drive a minibus? 

  • Driving licence held after 1st January 1997.

D1 Category should not be shown on a licence dated after the first of Jan 1997 and as a result the holder is not able to drive a minibus without undergoing additional training and passing an additional driving test geared toward minibus driving. An exception does exists for holders of a full category B (car) driving licence which upon meeting a set of conditions detailed below will entitle the holder to drive a vehicle that has a maximum of 16 passenger seats. 

  • Driving licence held before 1st January 1997

If you have held your driver's licence before 1st of Jan 1997 you should have Category D1 included on your licence. D1 translates into being able to drive a vehicle with up to 16 passenger seats without undergoing any additional tests, also look for a code (101) which should be printed next to D1. 101 translates into you may drive, but not if it involves hire for reward.

Factors that effect the cost of Minibus Insurance

  • Driver's 25 or under will pay extra as this age group make more claims and the actual claim amount in monetary terms are larger than if over 25. The underwriter adjusts the quotes for under 25's to reflect the increased risk
  • The cost to repair utility vehicle does vary with some being more expensive than others depending on the manufacturer. This along with the purchase cost play a factor in determining your risk level. The more expensive your vehicle category is to replace or fix the higher the resulting premium quote. 
  • The number of seats also plays a factor as such if you are sure you will only ever need a 9 seater then buy a people carrier with only 9 seats. 
  • Security: Can you provide secure overnight parking? Have you fitted industry approved alarm systems? If the answer is yes then this will be reflected positively in your quote.  
  • The drivers history: A good history of no claims will normally lead to a discounted quote.
  • Excess Amount: Raising the excess amount, which is the amount that you are liable for will also lead to a better quote from the insurer.
