Driver Assessor Trainer Training

Three Shires Driving Centre Ltd is certified by the Community Transport Association (CTA) to provide their MiDAS DATs courses, Driver Assessor Trainer Training, for minibus drivers. There are two courses available, the Standard Driver which covers driving safety and legal requirements in a standard minibus and the Accessible Driver which covers safe practice when assisting wheelchair users and those with disabilities to board an accessible vehicle using the stairs and lift.

The training  is over three or four days respectively and depending on numbers may be longer.

We can travel to your premises if you have three or more delegates and providing you have a suitable training room and equipment or we can accommodate you here at our premises. We prefer to use the equipment your staff are familiar with and the vehicles they will be driving however we can provide both at a small extra cost.

On successfully completing the course each trainer is given a certificate which is valid for two years when they would have to have refresher training which is done in one day.

The CTA continually review their MiDAS courses and the refresher training contains up to date information on equipment, minibuses, the law and safe practice.

For an application form please send an email to midastraining@threeshires.co.uk as applicants must have experience in driving minibuses, ideally have D1 entitlement on their licence and for the accessible training they must have experience in boarding passengers who use wheelchairs, walking aids, have sight or hearing loss.
