With such an important cargo (your pupils and students) and the difference in size between an average car and minibus, it is essential that all drivers are regularly assessed for their minibus driving ability.
MiDAS – Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme is a nationally recognised programme supported by the Community Transport Association.
School Minibus Company provides MiDAS in a structured and interactive way for up to five candidates in a day. Our experienced MiDAS trainers make the sessions inspiring and memorable.
Other Assessments and Training
We can structure one to one training for any of your drivers requiring additional support. Our Trainers can also tailor car driving assessments as well as structured training for 9 seat vehicles.
Specialist training and assessment for schools and colleges operating wheelchair accessible vehicles is available too. Plus, there’s even the option for emergency evacuation training, which uses a smoke machine for realism.
For minibuses towing a trailer, we can provide specialist towing courses by request for those schools that own luggage/equipment and boat trailers.
School Minibus Company provides a full suite of online assessment and driver training modules, for easy access.
