Voluntary and charities mini-bus licences

Minibus permits - otherwise known as Section 19 permits - can be issued to voluntary and non-profit making organisations concerned with religion, education, recreation, social welfare and other activities of benefit to the community.

Permits can allow the use of a minibus with between nine and 16 passenger seats for hire and reward under certain restricted conditions, without the need for the operator to hold a Public Service Vehicle (PSV) operator's licence. Please contact the Department for Transport for further information.
