MiDAS stands for Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme and is a nationally recognised training scheme for drivers of community minibuses.


To be eligible for training applicants should be 21 years or older and hold a full UK driving license that entitles them to drive a minibus.


All drivers must hold a MiDAS certificate. This is a condition of our operator’s license. To drive the Peugeot Boxer they also require D1 entitlement on their license.


MiDAS training usually takes 1 day and includes a theory test and a driving assessment. The certificate is valid for 4 years, after which a further test is required.


Anyone whose certificate has expired will not be able to drive the minibus.


Anyone wishing to apply for MiDAS training should contact Morag Chapman - see Contacts page.
