ROSPA Road Safety Advice for Minibus Drivers


Minibus Safety - A Code of Prcatice (PDF)
Minibuses are motor vehicles that have been constructed or adapted to carry more than eight, but not more than 16, passengers in addition to the driver.They provide a vital mode of transport for a great number of people and organisations. Local authorities, schools, voluntary groups, clubs and societies and employers all make extensive use of the minibus to run an impressive range of social and educational activities.

For every mile travelled, people in minibuses are less likely to be involved in an accident than people in cars. Nevertheless, the risk of injury and death for minibus users can be reduced.

The aim of this Code of Practice is to help organisations that own, hire or lease minibuses, to provide a safe, effective and efficient service. It is written for the person who owns, manages, or has responsibility for the operation and management of the minibus. This may be the driver, centre manager, the school (a nominated individual, Headteacher or the Governing Body) or the group leader. It is not written for commercial operators who require a full Public Service Vehicle (PSV) operator licence.
