Minibus – Minibus Lite


Thousands of hours of research have gone into developing the groundbreaking MINIBUS LITE. Extensive use of weight saving materials has resulted in a 16 seater which is below 3.5 tons, the point at which a D1 licence is required.

MINIBUS LITE is available in a choice of 16 and 17 seats and 5 specifications. Four of the five specifications can be driven without D1 entitlement on your licence.

The advantages

The advantage of this to organisations, such as schools, is it allows more staff to drive the school minibus without incurring the cost of training for a D1 licence.

The majority of school minibuses need the driver to have D1 entitlement because the vehicles weigh over 3.5 tons. Training and test fees for a D1 licence will cost approximately £900 per person, excluding at least two days out of the office.

The national pass rate for the D1 test is just 60% so there is no guarantee your investment will be worthwhile and there is a strong chance a re-test will be required.

Multiply this sum for each employee and the figure quickly escalates. Over 5 years the additional cost for training four members of staff per year could be in excess of £18,000 – nearly the cost of a new minibus.

MINIBUS LITE is built using the latest lightweight materials including lightweight seats to aid manual handling.


Because MINIBUS LITE saves on fuel it lowers your carbon footprint. It is built using recycled materials where possible.


A light weight vehicle will use less fuel so with more miles per gallon you will spend less at the pumps.



The light weight means you don’t need to have a D1 licence to drive it (depending on specification.) This means your organisation will save time and money on D1 training and test expenses.


Competitive pricing, excellent economy and fewer driver restrictions means your money will go further.


Why Minibus Lite Makes Sense.

To drive the MINIBUS LITE you do not need a D1 licence (excluding specification 2). So as long as you meet the criteria detailed on the page opposite you will have less restrictions and expense placed on your staff than the majority of school minibuses which require the driver to have D1 entitlement.

Agility Fleet have quality at the heart of everything we do. The MINIBUS LITE is built with only the highest quality materials to ensure longevity and durability.


Wheelchair Accessible Versions.

MINIBUS LITE is available in a choice of 3 wheelchair accessible versions, each with 17 seats. Access to the vehicle is by a full-width ramp or an electric lift which will take the wheelchair passenger into the rear of the vehicle.

Four point restraints and a 3 point seat belt keep the wheelchair
passenger safe and secure. MINIBUS LITE wheelchair accessible versions can take up to 4 wheelchair passengers. Agility Fleet offer a wide range of mobility adaptations so we can tailor your MINIBUS LITE exactly to your requirements.
