An award winning, nationally recognised standard for minibus driver training, MiDAS is for those who drive a minibus on a voluntary and occasional basis. This includes teachers, youth workers and volunteer drivers.

Delegates attend a one day interactive session covering legal responsibilities, safeguarding, 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, safeguarding, 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 of around one hour with the trainer.

Standard MiDAS training usually takes 4–5 hours to complete, and includes between one and four learners, as this allows enough time to be able to complete the practical assessments on the same day.

Standard MiDAS training prices are as follows: 

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

Training can take place at your own site, (a suitable room and use of a minibus is required). Travel costs for the Trainer will be applied at 0.45p per mile from the CT Training site.

Vehicles
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.

Your MiDAS certification lasts for four years; however, CT Training delivers the MiDAS refresher course to inform learners of any new information and changes in legislation and refresh driving skills.
