15 person passenger vans are common ways of moving groups of people who may require multiple cars, but not require a full size bus. However, passenger vans may not be as safe as passenger cars particularly if they are being driven by someone who is not used to how the van handles or should be maintained.

Georgia License Requirements for Passenger Vans
Accordingly, Georgia law requires the driver of a passenger van designed to transport 15 passengers plus a driver to obtain a commercial driver's license. In order to obtain a commercial driver's license a person must be at least 18-years-old, must pass the skills test, and must meet the other requirements set forth in the state Commercial Driver's Licensing Requirements.
