MiDAS

  • MiDAS is the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme and is administered by the Community Transport Association. The scheme provides a nationally recognised standard for the assessment and training of minibus drivers and has been designed to enhance minibus driving standards and promote the safer operation of minibuses.

    MiDAS is available to any organisation operating or using minibuses. Organisations that train their drivers in MiDAS range from small voluntary organisations with one vehicle, to local authorities operating large fleets of minibuses as well as schools, colleges and universities.

    How does MiDAS Work?

    MiDAS operates on a ‘cascade’ model. CTA appoints a number of Training Agents (TAs), who provide training for a larger number of Driver Assessor Trainers (DATs) who then train and assess individual minibus drivers within organisations.
