    People Carrier/Mini Bus Hire?

    Anyone know where I can hire/borrow a people carrier or mini bus on the cheap?? Am going to Le Mans with a few mates in June and want to take everything...INCLUDING....the kitchen sink so the more space the better.

    Any suggestions welcomed... I'm living in Kingston Upon Thames.

    Cheers

    Think some time in '97 was the cut off for the larger vehicles?

    yup all licences after 1 jan 1997 are restricted - this means a cat B licence (car) covers small minibuses up to and including 8 seats.

    pre 1997 then a car licence covers upto and incl 15 seats

    so u can drive upto 8 seater max *....if u wanna drive a 9-15 seater u will need a minibus licence (D1) category.

    Yes I know quite a bit about licences and categories cos Ive got every category there is except cat D.

    Saying that - an 8 seater is still a canny size...

    * 8 seater can not exceed 3.5ton GVW

    This principle applies also for ppl wanting to drive 7.5tonners.... if any1 wants to know more - gimme a shout!
