Mini Bus License

Hi does anyone have experience of obtaining a minibus license.

Its a school minibus with school children in it, 11 seats plus driver.

Do I need a
  • BPT (commercial) for driver + 8 passengers, or
  • D1 for driver + 16 passengers
  • D
  • Something else
At the moment I have a B license.

What is the process, theory? Practical?
Where can I do it?

I have phoned some driving schools and not had much luck.

Re: Mini Bus License

Are you sure you only have a B?
I had my license converted from the UK and have A1, B, D1, BE and D1E by default.
If any, I would say you'd need a D1.
