Rental Van Safety Course

(1 customer review)


The leading cause of 15-passenger van accidents is driver error. With simple training you can help prevent rollovers and reduce the risk of serious injuries.

Topics covered in the Rental Van Safety course:

  1. Van Safety Check
  2. Proper Van Loading
  3. Defensive Van Driving


IMPORTANT: Make sure each driver your rental van has completed a 15-passenger van safety training course prior to your trip.

If you need to rent a vehicle for a group of seven or more people, you have two choices: You can rent multiple cars or one passenger van with room for 12 or 15 people.

These vehicles can pose a safety risk to inexperienced van drivers and other road users. We recommend van drivers

  • insist that all occupants wear seat belts at all times;
  • that drivers of 15-passenger vans are trained and experienced;
  • tires are checked at least once a week, using the manufacturer’s recommended pressure levels;
  • and nothing is placed on the roof of the vehicle.

While the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has highlighted the safety issues inherent in 15-passenger vans, the United States is far more lenient in allowing drivers to operate passenger vans.

PLEASE NOTE: In Canada, vehicles seating more than 12 passengers are considered commercial vehicles. That means you would need a commercial driver’s license to cross the U.S. / Canada border in a rented van.
