Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS)

What is MiDAS?

Originally developed by Hampshire County Council, MiDAS is the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme and is administered nationally by CTAUK.  It is a membership-based scheme that has been designed to enhance minibus driving standards and promote the safer operation of minibuses.

Looking for a trainer?

If you are looking for someone to train your drivers in MiDAS, please contact the CTA for a list of Driver Assessor Trainers in your area on 0161 351 1475.  (The reason we don't put this information online is because the list changes on a very regular basis and we like to provide you with a list that is always up-to-date.)  Training Agents also deliver driver training.

You can find out more about the driver training course here.
