MiDAS is a national scheme to enhance the driving and passenger awareness skills of minibus drivers. MiDAS is not a legal requirement but is increasingly being accepted as a ‘best working practice’. Most organisations operating minibuses like their drivers to have a MiDAS certificate. It is down to the organisation’s risk assessment and policy.

MiDAS offers two types of certificate:

• Standard (for driving only)
• Accessible (in addition to driving, this includes safely securing wheelchairs)

To be MiDAS trained, you will need to take either a Standard Induction or Accessible Induction course.

Midas Refresher - Drivers can only refresh their certificate if they have a current certificate which expires no more than 3 months earlier than the date of Refresher course. Only those who hold a current Accessible certificate can take an Accessible Refresher. Otherwise you will need to re-take the certificate as a new inductee.

The training consists of an online theory session, followed by a separate driving assessment. Days are scheduled as follows:

Refresher Standard courses
• Day One– Online Theory Session x1 full day
• Day Two – 1-hour practical assessment

Refresher Accessible courses
• Day One– Online Theory Session x1 full day
• Day Two – 2-3 hour practical assessment

A certificate is valid for 4 years and you will require refresher training by no less than 3 months before the certificate expiry date.
