Can I drive every car, van and minibus you hire out?

Van Hire from TJS

To hire a car or van from TJS you need to be aged between 25 and 75 and have held a full licence for at least 2 years.

For people carriers (MPVs) and minibuses, drivers must be between 30 and 75 and have driven for at least 5 years.

Which vehicles you can hire depends on the categories your licence allows you to drive. You can hire most of the cars and vans in our fleet with a regular category B licence, but some of our larger vans and minibuses may require additional categories:

  • Category B
    Hire and drive cars, 4x4s, MPVs/minibuses with no more than 8 passenger seats, and commercial vehicles ranging from our small vans up to and including a Luton box van. Maximum weight is 3.5 tonne (3.500kg)
  • Category C1
    Required for hiring commercial vehicles between 3.5 tonne and a maximum weight of 7.5 tonne
  • Category D1
    Required for hiring any minibus with more than 8 passenger seats up to a maximum of 16 passenger seats
