MIDAS Minibus Training

MIDAS Minibus Training

What Is MIDAS Minibus Training?

The MIDAS minibus training, or the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme, aims to improve minibus driving standards and promote safer driving practices. This training was created and is administered by the Community Transport Association (CTA). The Community Transport Association recognised the need for a nationally recognised standard for minibus drivers and decided to introduce the MIDAS training scheme. 

Although MIDAS minibus training was primarily introduced for community groups and associations, it can be very beneficial for any organisation or business fleets with minibuses. This allows for companies to validate and improve driving standards and passenger safety. If your business operated minibuses, MIDAS training could be beneficial for you. It is proven that better drivers deliver better service, and MIDAS training helps you do just that. 

MIDAS minibus training has both practical and theoretical components and covers many aspects of defensive driver training. In addition to the training, we can provide you with a driver risk assessment, on request, with a full written report.  

MIDAS Minibus Training Overview

Our MIDAS minibus training courses are available for groups and single drivers. This allows us to tailor each session to the needs of your business and employees. The course consists of a 2.5-hour presentation, which can be done in groups, followed by a 1.5 hour one to one practical training session. This means that each driver completes a total of 4 hours of professional training to help them become safer and more responsible minibus drivers. 

What Are The Benefits Of Minibus Driver Training?

MIDAS minibus training can benefit your business in a variety of different ways. The training that we provide will upskill your employees and encourage them to adopt an improved driving technique. This is advantageous for businesses and organisations of any size. Better drivers can help you deliver a better service and save money. In addition to this, training helps to ensure the comfort and safety of your passengers and clients. Other benefits that your business may gain from our Midas minibus training include: 

Benefits of Training

Skilled drivers help to improve the comfort and safety of passengers through their driving practices. Unskilled drivers may damage your organisation’s reputation through poor or dangerous driving. This can result in a negative perception of your business. Through completing our MIDAS training course, your drivers can learn to ensure that all of your passengers enjoy a safe and comfortable journey.

The training we provide helps to improve your employees awareness and anticipation skills. This helps to reduce the risk of them being involved in an incident. Road traffic incidents cost business  on average £6000 per year, and can damage company reputation. 

Through adopting an improved driving technique, your employees can help reduce emissions and running costs. Our training enables your employees to drive in a more fuel-efficient manner, making better use of the vehicle’s controls. This allows your employees to drive further for  longer on less fuel, and reduce maintenance costs. 

With 1 in 3 road traffic accidents in the UK involving individuals driving for work, it is clear that training is essential to improve safety standards. Our training can help you create a culture of safety within your organisation or business. This helps to ensure the safety of your employees and passengers, by limiting the risk of your drivers being involved in an accident.  Road traffic accidents can cost you money and damage your reputation. Our professional driver training solutions can help you avoid this.
