MIDAS Mini Bus Driver Training At Alconbury Driving Centre

Huntingdon, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 11, 2012 -- MiDAS training is a safety and skill-based driver training provided essentially for mini bus drivers of various organizations. It is a free membership scheme developed by Hampshire County Council and administered in UK by Community Transport Association UK (CTAUK).

Health and Safety Executive considers driving as one of the most challenging activities with a high degree of risk. Therefore MiDAS Mini Bus

Training is ideal, as it trains drivers to drive in an eco-friendly, sympathetic and stress-free manner which also lowers the chances of wear & tear, maintenance and fuel costs, and overall reduction in running costs of the vehicles. It will prevent accidents which will also lower insurance premiums. Trained drivers will be careful drivers even when they are with their families or all by themselves, thus bringing in a permanent consciousness of driving safe. But above all it ensures a comfortable and safe transportation for the passengers involved, which is the chief aim of all organizations and service providers.

Any organization providing passenger transportation, whether operating a single vehicle or a large fleet of vehicles, can join this scheme to upgrade their drivers' skills up to MiDAS standards. Many educational institutions are also members of MiDAS, and in fact the Department of Education mentions, in its guidelines for schools using mini buses, that MiDAS driver training is a good practice for all schools.

The Alconbury Driving Centre has trainers accredited by CTAUK to assess, train and develop drivers according to MiDAS minibus driver training standards and guidelines, offering the following courses:

Standard driver assessments
Accessible driver assessments
Minibus fire evacuation training
