An award winning, nationally recognised standard for minibus driver training, MiDAS is for those who drive a minibus on a voluntary, not-for-profit and/or on an  occasional basis. 

Delegates attend  interactive sessions covering legal responsibilities, defensive driving, breakdown procedures and passenger safety, followed by an on-road driving assessment with personal feedback.

Training is delivered in three parts;

  • The first part comprises of an interactive classroom session covering legal responsibilities, defensive driving, breakdown procedures and passenger safety.
  • The second part comprises of a multiple choice theory assessment.
  • The third comprises of a practical driving assessment comprising of at least 30 minutes with the trainer.

Standard MiDAS training usually takes 4–5 hours to complete, usually with a maximum of four learners,  as this allows enough time to be able to complete the practical assessments in one day.

Standard MiDAS training prices are as follows: 

  • Standard MiDAS Training - £119.00
  • Accessible Module as an add-on only - £49.00 (Candidate must hold current MiDAS Standard Certificate)
  • A discount may apply for group bookings.

Training can take place at your own site if you have a suitable space. Travel costs for the Trainer will be applied at 0.45p per mile from the CT Training site.

If a visit to your site is required to carry out the training and you do not have your own minibus for use, CT can provide a minibus for an additional charge.

CT Training has training facilities at its sites in Birmingham, Bilston and Newcastle if you prefer to travel to us.
