Adding extra seats - the law?

Recommended Posts

Yes you can and no need to tell DVLA.

Strictly in your commercial hardtop you don't need seat belts in side facing benchseats, but that is something that I personally wouldn't do.

Once you fit the seats belts though they will come under MOT check. Just use front seat belts securing procedures as a guideline and replicate and you will be fine with MOT.

[...] no need to tell DVLA.

You need to inform the DVLA if the number of seats change - the number of seats is listed on the V5.

In an extreme example it could even change the class of vehicle - i.e. change a 110 from 6 seats to 12 and you make it a minibus, need to be 21 to drive it and a D1 licence!
