Top tips for driving a minibus or MPV

  1. If it is your first time driving a minibus, let our Sixt staff know when you go to pick up your vehicle and they will be happy to give you a short demonstration on how to drive it properly. 
  2. Go for a test drive in a car park or a quiet road with little traffic to get the feel of driving the minibus before hand. 
  3. When driving a minibus always remember to take into consideration the extra room required to maneuver the vehicle and when reversing and backing into a parking space.  
  4. When driving a larger vehicle do not follow the vehicle in front of you too closely as you will require a longer stopping distance.  
  5. Although there are some differences between driving a minibus and a standard sized car, it's straightforward and simple after quick practice.

Category D1 allows you to drive vehicles with 17 seats, a maximum length of 8 metres and a trailer up to 750 kg. According to the DVLA, drivers who received their licenses prior to 1 January 1997 are able to drive minibuses provided their entitlement to drive minibuses (category D1) remains in force.
