WHAT IS MiDAS? It’s the Minibus Drivers Awareness Scheme

Due to the amount of media coverage in the past, concerning traffic accidents involving minibuses, Hampshire Council, together with The Community Transport Association (CTA), developed a training scheme specifically for minibus drivers in the voluntary sector.

Drivers using our minibuses must obtain the MiDAS qualification from this or from any MiDAS training establishment prior to driving.

The main objectives of the MiDAS scheme are that all drivers will:

1. Be assessed to ensure that their minibus driving is of a high standard.

2. Be given help where necessary to improve their minibus driving skills.

3. Be aware of the legal, practical and safety issues surrounding minibus driving.

4. Be trained in the safe operation and use of an accessible minibus and its equipment.

5. Will receive a certificate which is accepted by other MiDAS Community Transport members.

You can’t always prevent an accident but training can help to reduce the chances.


The following courses are now available from the Speke Garston Community Minibus Agency:

  • Passenger Assistant Training
  • Car & MPV Training
  • Health and Safety Training (including First Aid and Manual Handling

Training can be conducted here at the Minibus Agency or at your establishment.
