Driving our mini buses

All of our mini buses can be hired with one of our drivers. Alternatively, you can drive the mini bus yourself if you have D1 entitlement on your license and you have completed MiDAS training.

What is MiDAS training?

MiDAS is the minibus driver awareness scheme approved by The Community Transport Association (CTA). The scheme has been designed to enhance driving standards and promote the safer operation of minibuses.

We are committed to keeping your group safe, so will work with you to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to safely drive one of our mini buses. At the end of the training, you’ll get a certificate which is valid for 4 years.
