Minibus Hire - Border Garage

Self drive minibus hire services are ideal for the people who need privacy and freedom as they travel. If you think that this is what you need, then do not hesitate to contact us and request for a self drive minibus. Depending on the size of the group that you are travelling with, we are able to give you one of our vehicles that will fully meet all your requirements in terms of comfort and convenience.

Travelling with a large group of people is an experience that is very enjoyable and entertaining. This is because you will get to interact with more people for a longer period than you would on a normal occasion. With a choice of 12 seater and 17 seater buses we have something to suit.

Not everyone is eligible to drive a minibus. Hopefully this will help.

If you're hiring a 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 750kg. 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).
