Minibus Awareness Training Scheme
Does your group use a minibus for outings? Is your driver suitably qualified?
We provide Minibus Awareness Training Scheme (MiDAS) training – a nationally recognized standard for assessing and training minibus drivers.
Our trainers are qualified, professional and friendly. Year after year we train teachers, youth group leaders, care home workers, students and many more to enhance their driving standards and promote the safe operation of minibuses.
Our competitively priced course is tailored to meet specific needs and as we are a social enterprise, profit generated goes straight back into the communities we serve.
