Looking to no what the laws are about adding seats to the rear of a van that only has 2 seats in front.
Does it need mot and is it hard to get insurance company to recognise it.
Thanks

Do many places do conversions like that and source seats.
Seat belts have to be a must to hold people in place.

Yeah theres places that do the conversions etc and will need certification for insurance purposes etc now the fun starts trying to convince the insurance company that the vehicle is no longer being used for commercial purposes etc which im not 100% sure about.

Hard to get a decent small 3 seat van over here in ni. Might just have to hold out and wait to a get one.. putting seats in seems more hassle than its worth.

I went the other way and bought a 7 seater and now only 2 seats and plenty of room in the back for a single size mattress.
