Product Description

Midas Minibus Driver Training.

MiDAS is the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme and is administered by the Community Transport Association.

The scheme provides a nationally recognised standard for the assessment and training of minibus drivers

It has been designed to enhance minibus driving standards and promote the safer operation of minibuses.

MiDAS is available to any organisation operating or using minibuses.

Organisations that train their drivers in MiDAS range from small voluntary organisations

With one vehicle, to local authorities operating large fleets of minibuses as well as schools, colleges and universities.

The structure of MiDAS courses changed on the 1 January 2024

It used to be 3 hours in classroom in the morning and then around 50 minutes per person on the road for the driver assessments in the afternoon

The theory part that we would normally come into you to deliver is now online training and assessment

 Once the online training and assessment are complete, then we would then arrange a date to come into yourselves and deliver the on-road driving assessment using your minibus

 If you were wanting to go ahead with the above we would have to send you a driver passport for each person attending the course and then they would create an account and all the future training and assessment results would be kept on this portal

 There would be a charge of £60 per person ( which we would require up front ) for each driver passport as we have to buy these prior to the theory taking place, to allow them to create an account and do all their theory training and assessments


The driver passports can be purchased via our website as the link below and we would need the drivers names, email addresses or yours for you to forward them on to them and your organisation must be registered with MiDAS before we can get their passports, if you are not registered already you can use the link below to do this

The price for the on road driving assessments ( where we come to your site and use your minibus ) would be £95 per person for 4 people / £ 125 per person for 3 people / £ 175 per person for 2 people or a day rate of £ 295 for 1 person and would take around 1 hour

 The theory can be done at the drivers leisure and then once the required drivers have passed their theory assessments we can arrange a date we can come in to do the on road driving assessments

 Hope this helps and if you require anything else in the meantime please us know 



MiDAS operates on a ‘cascade’ model.

CTA appoints a number of Training Agents (TAs), who provide training for a larger number of Driver Assessor Trainers (DATs)

They then train and assess individual minibus drivers within organisations.

The Community Transport Association (CTA) is a national charity that represents and supports providers of community transport

  1. thousands of local charities
  2. and community groups across the UK that all provide transport services that fulfil a social purpose and community benefit.

This training course is suitable for people looking for the MiDAS accreditation which is required by many local authorities, schools, residential homes and days centres etc that are operating vehicles ( minibuses ) with and without wheel chair accessibility.
