MIDAS TRAINING


The objective of the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) is to improve minibus safety by enhancing the skills of drivers. MiDAS has been developed by the Community Transport Association (CTA) which is the national representative body for community, voluntary and other specialist transport operators and their supporters (of which DACT is a member).

Every one of our volunteers has to undergo MiDAS training, along with any one else who drives our minibuses.

Therefore, if you are a part of a group affiliated with DACT and are looking to drive one of our buses for your outings, then you would need a MiDAS certificate.

Fortunately, we are able to offer this training at a subsidised rate, provided by our fully qualified MiDAS trainers.

If you are interested, please complete the below form, or call us on 01327 701665 to request a form through the post to get started.
