9 seat minibuses cater for 8 passsengers plus a driver. They usually differ from 8 seat minibuses by having a dual front passenger seat. Look at our 8 seat minibuses page if you require a single front passenger seat to carry 7 passengers and a driver.
All of the 9 seat minibuses on our website can be driven by a B category (non category D1) licence holder on a non-commercial basis. Commercial Hire & Reward usage will require a Taxi or PCV Licence to drive. Need more seats? If driving on a normal car licence is important to you and you need more than 8 passengers. See our minibuses for car licences page for minibuses that are 3500kgs GVW or under.
The Renault Trafic 9 seat minibus is available in two lengths, a 2700kg GVW short wheelbase (SWB) and a 2900kg GVW long wheelbase (LWB) and is available in two trim levels: Business and Sport. It is a front wheel drive, 120ps singel turbo engine with twin side load doors minibus that can be driven by a non category D1 license holder (ie normal car licence) on a non hire & reward basis.
NB. The difference in dimensions between the Short Wheelbase (SL) and Long Wheelbase (LL) models is in the rear luggage area. The legroom for rear passengers is the same.
