This is our
FORD MINI BUS that we use for all our CLASS D1 pupils. This bus has 15 seats in all including the driver and used to be rated at 3.5 tonne.
We had this bus uprated to 4 tonnes for the test which is the only one around. It has special air bags underneath it made in Germany. It has a tachograph fitted for test also.
Inside and out
The inside of the
MINI BUS has seat belts for all seats and all seats face forward.
There is a
FIRE EXTINGUISHER and FIRST AID BOX inside for the test.
It has a 5 speed gear box and mirrors fitted for the examiner to see down both sides.
With side and rear emergency doors its a nice bus to drive and also to teach on.
