MINIBUS TYPE APPROVAL
How are Minibuses Approved for road use in the UK?
Minibuses are approved for road use through three main routes. We believe that safety comes first and have invested in ensuring our Minibuses meet the necessary approvals.
Our Minibuses are safe and legal. We manufacture inline with GB Small Series Type Approval (GBSSTA) and Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA). This means are Minibuses are check and approved for road use in the UK.
Some competitors may opt to only build their vehicles to GBSSTA (formerly NSSTA) or ECWVTA** and while this is perfectly legal. We take pride in the extra reassurance of passing some vehicles through IVA. This means our build quality and conformity is regular checked and we are not solely reliant on the approval gained from a singular test vehicle.
Minibus World - Routes to Vehicle Approval
Minibus world hold Conformity of Production (CoP) issued by the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA)*, acknowledging and confirming we manufacture repetitively to the required specification.
To put our Minibuses further under the spotlight we have had them inspected by Peugeot UK and Europe gaining their Technical Teams approval and certifying as “Peugeot Approved Minibuses”.
This has since led to the parent company of Peugeot, Stellantis also vetting our vehicles. Minibus World again achieved the enviable position of being approved, allowing us to produce approved Minibuses on Vauxhall, Citroen and Fiat.
When we say our Minibus is approved, we say it with a great level of certainty and you can be confident we're right!
