MiDAS (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme)
MiDAS is a national scheme to enhance the driving and passenger awareness skills
of minibus drivers. Although it is not a legal requirement to have MiDAS to drive a
minibus, it is increasingly being accepted as good practice, and most organisations
operating minibuses insist on their drivers holding a MiDAS Certificate.
The training involves a classroom session followed by a separate driving assessment in
our minibus. On completion a certificate is issued which lasts for four years, and
which is recognised nationally as a common standard. It is not necessary for
candidates to have prior experience of driving a minibus, although there are certain
driving licence requirements – please contact us for further details.
NOTE: We’re now offering PATS training – see page 4.
Dates: Tue 25th & Wed 26th Sept,
       Tue 16th & Wed 17th Oct,
       Tue 13th & Wed 14th Nov,
       Tue 11th & Wed 12th Dec.
Times: 9.15am to 4pm, followed by a driving assessment on the second day.
