If you're hiring a COMN or CNMN minibus then you will require a category D1 driving license. This category was automatically granted if you passed your test before January 1st 1997. If you were born after this date, you must apply for the D1 category. The age restriction for applications is 21 or over. 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. It is also important to note that non-EU citizens can only drive vehicles which have up to 9 seats (IVAR, SVAR and FVMR).
Minibuses with 9 seats and above are not able to leave the UK.
