Minibus Permits. The Section 19 Permit system is changing!

6 MARCH 2009

"The Department of Transport has stated that the Section 19 Permit system is changing. This is the permit for minibuses owned by wholly not-for-profit organisations i.e. churches, for transporting people whom they are seeking to assist. The main changes are:

1) Permits will be valid only for up to 5 years and not permanent as they are now. The old permits will be phased out by April 2014

2) The lower limit which used to be 9 passengers will be relaxed to allow smaller vehicles to be used under a section 19 permit.

Anyone wishing to get such a permit can obtain them from Grace Baptist Charities Ltd, 7 Arlington Way, London EC1R 1XA at a cost of £11 per permit."
