We have MiDAS qualified  trainers who can offer MiDAS training. This is the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme; a nationally recognised standard for the assessment and training of minibus drivers and is administered by the Community Transport Association. The scheme provides a nationally recognised standard for the assessment and training of minibus drivers and has been designed to enhance minibus driving standards and promote the safer operation of minibuses. With the huge size differential between a car and a minibus, it is essential that all drivers are assessed for their minibus driving ability. Certificates issued are valid for 4 years.

We offer both
Standard Minibus and Wheelchair Accessible Minibus training.


 

We provide Midas in a friendly structured and interactive way. Our experienced Midas trainers make the training inspiring and memorable.
