Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme - Community Transport Waltham Forest

Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS)

This is a nationally recognised standard for the training and development of minibus drivers, certificated and valid for four years. The MiDAS scheme is designed to enhance minibus driving standards and promote the safer operation of minibuses and is applicable to any organisation operating or using minibuses. A valid MiDAS training certificate is a mandatory requirement for anyone who wishes to drive any of our minibuses.

We are able to offer off site training on your site at your convenience subject to a minimum number of six trainees in attendance.

Please note:

Anyone seeking to undertake MIDAS training must do their licence check online at as part of registration to attend the MIDAS course, paper licenses are no longer acceptable.

  • Trainees are required to be at the training venue at 8.45am on the day of the course. You must bring your full driving licence and two passport photos.
  • It may not be possible to have the MiDAS practical driving assessment on the same day as the theory session due to instructor availability.
  • If you are doing the Accessible MiDAS, this theory session will take place on the following day. It will not be possible to do the practical driving assessment on the same day due to the time constraints.
