PSV Minibuses Hire
We are now able to offer minibuses which meet PSV regulations (Public Service Vehicle) with the following seating capacities: 12 seat, 15 seat and 17 seat. These minibuses receive an annual PSV test instead of a standard MOT. So if you are a minibus have operator in need of a short-term replacement PSV minibus, please give us a call and specify a PSV tested vehicle when you make your booking. There may be an additional cost for a PSV minibus over our standard minibuses.
Our current model availibility of 12 seat minibuses includes the Ford Transit T350 TDCi L2H2 (Medium Wheelbase, Medium Roof) 12 seat Minibus / People Mover
With three-point lap & diagonal seatbelts throughout, ISOFIX child seat anchor points, ABS, Traction Control and a host of safety features, our modern fleet of minibuses can transport your clients and staff in comfort and safety.
CENTRAL LONDON ULEZ (ULTRA Low Emission Zone)
Maun Motors has a small number of minibuses which meet the Euro 6 emissions regulations, making them suitable for use within the London LEZ & ULEZ Low Emission Zones. There is an additional cost for these more modern & expensive vehicles. If you plan to use your hired vehicle within the ULEZ zone in Central London, please specify a Euro 6 vehicle when making your booking.
Please note that due to the increased cost of modern vehicles, the rental price of a Euro 6 model may be higher than a Euro 5 model; but if you will be driving through Central London this extra cost will be more than offset by not having to pay the ULEZ entry charge.
You may be able to drive a minibus with up to 16 passenger seats using your current car driving licence (Category B) as long as it’s not for ‘hire or reward’ (i.e. there’s no payment from or on behalf of the passengers), provided the GVW of the minibus is no more than 3.5 tonnes. Unfortunately, very few 17 seat minibuses have such a low GVW – ours range between 4.25 & 4.6 tonnes GVW – so in practice the maximum size of minibus you can hire is 14 passengers.
In order to drive a 12 seat minibus commercially (i.e. for ‘hire or reward’), the driver must hold a PCV (Passenger Carrying Vehicle) licence or category D1 entitlement on their driving licence, so please ensure this is checked prior to placing a booking. For more information on driving licence categories please see: https://www.gov.uk/driving-licence-categories and for further information on driving a minibus, please see: https://www.gov.uk/driving-a-minibus.
Please remember the stated seating capacity includes the driver, i.e. a 12 seat minibus will carry 11 passengers plus the driver.
One major bonus of the Ford Transit L2H2 12 seat minibus is that it is possible to remove the rear row of 2 x double seats, leaving seating capacities of either 10 seats (inc. driver) or 8 seats (inc. driver), plus a large luggage space. So, if you have a requirement to carry 7 or 9 passengers, please contact us in advance to request the removal & safe storage of the rear seats because we do not allow the hirer to remove seats of their own accord.
We also hire out smaller executive 9 seat luxury minibuses which are spacious yet nimble and able to fit in a standard car park space and low enough to fit in many multi-storey car parks (but please always check first!).
