MiDAS is the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme, which promotes a nationally recognised standard for the assessment and training of minibus drivers. It is a membership based scheme that has been designed to enhance minibus driving standards and promote the safer operation of minibuses.
MiDAS helps to improve minibus safety by working with organisations to enhance the driving and passenger awareness skills of drivers. Membership is open to any organisation operating minibuses on a non-commercial basis.
We provide both classroom-based theory training and an on-road driving MiDAS assessments for all minibus drivers.
Regular refresher training is a significant element of MiDAS and in order to retain their MiDAS Certificate, drivers must attend refresher training every four years.
IMPORTANT: Before driving a minibus and applying for your MiDAS training, it is important you check your driving licence entitlement:
Please note you need to supply your own minibus to complete our MiDAS training and assessment.
Cost of MiDAS Course is from £69 per person.
