Mini Bus Bromley
Yes, anyone who can drive can hire our mini bus in Bromley, and even if you couldn’t drive, you could still hire a mini bus and a driver. You don’t need a special driving licence to hire a mini bus or hire a van. As long as you’re over 22, under 70 and have held your UK driving licence for more than a year, you can hire and drive a mini bus or van.
However, driving a hired mini bus or van is very different to driving a standard road mini bus, so here are some pointers to help you get used to the changes you’ll need to make to your driving style when you hire a mini bus or van.
You have to break on time. The braking distance of a van or mini bus is greater than that of a mini bus, so brake earlier than you normally would in your hired vehicle
A hire van or mini bus will have a wider turning circle than your road mini bus, so be sure to leave plenty of room for any manoeuvres
When you’re driving a hire van or mini bus, be aware of hazards on the road such as protruding signposts, overhanging trees, overhead power lines, low bridges and telephone cables.
A good way to get used to driving a hire mini bus or hire van can be to practice in a safe place off the public road. The van or mini bus hire company may have somewhere you can do this, or you may be able to find a quiet corner of a mini bus park to practice in.
