Mini Bus Orpington
Keeping safe is very important when you drive a hire mini bus in Orpington for the first time. Driving an unfamiliar vehicle can sometimes lead to surprises, especially if you’re used to driving a different vehicle which may have certain controls in different places.
That means that whenever you hire a mini bus, you should listen very carefully to any instructions or advice given to you by the mini bus hire company’s staff. Before you drive away, check that you know where all the hire vehicle’s controls are. If you’re unsure about anything on your hire mini bus, ask a staff member before you drive away.
As with any vehicle, it’s important to wear comfortable shoes when driving your hire mini bus. Also, make sure your mirrors are adjusted, seat positions are comfortable and all the occupants of the mini bus are wearing their seatbelts. If the vehicle you’ve hired is a van or mini bus, make sure all rear and side doors and exits are securely closed before you drive on the road.
It’s also a good idea to plan extra time for your journey when you’re driving an unfamiliar hire mini bus for the first time. That will give you plenty of time to make stops in a safe place if you realise you’re unsure about any aspect of the vehicle you have hired.
