Minibus / MiDAS Training

Minibus and MiDAS Training throughout the UK

Number 1 for quality and service

Minibus licencing is one of the most complicated licence categories in the UK. If you drive for a profit making organisation you will need to upgrade your driving licence to Category D1, (Minibus), and gain your Driver CPC, (Certificate of Professional Competence). Whereas if you plan to drive for a non profit making organisation you can either upgrade your licence to Category D1 and/or sit the MiDAS course.

We offer Discounts for block bookings, and training can be delivered at your Venue or ours. Call us on 0800 047 6921 or contact us for more details.

Driver CPC came into effect on the 10th of September 2008 for bus/coach (PCV) drivers, and the 10th of September 2009 for lorry (LGV) drivers. If already hold your driver CPC you will need to complete the driver CPC periodic training

If you already hold your Driver CPC, you will need complete 35 hours periodic training over every 5 year period to maintain your CPC status.

If you have yet to gain your CPC, you will have to complete Modules 2 and 4 of the Initial Qualification, or, if you passed your Category B, (Car), test prior to January 1997 you can choose whether to complete the 35 hours periodic training, or the Modules 2 and 4.
