MIDAS Training

We can provide training to gain the nationally recognised Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) certificate and the Passenger Assistant Training Scheme (PATS) certificate.

Anybody wishing to drive one of our minibuses must hold a MiDAS certificate. The course consists of a Standard classroom session ending with a multi choice test which must be passed plus an on the road driving assessment. Alternatively you can opt to do both standard and Accessible classroom sessions; learning how to support people with disabilities and safe load, clamp and secure people and their wheelchairs.

“We recently ran a MiDAS training course for new teachers at our school and were very impressed with the service we received from Merton Community Transport. They were able to accommodate us at very short notice and we found the trainer, Graham Pain, to be polite, reliable and flexible. We would have no hesitation in recommending Merton Community Transport.” City of London Freemen’s School, Ashtead Park
