Midas Training at WDCT

MIDAS Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme is a nationally recognised standard for the assessment and training of minibus drivers. The scheme is organised by the Community Transport Association (CTA UK)

WDCT has a fully trained Midas Assessor who ensures every WDCT driver reaches MIDAS standard. We are also able to offer Midas training to outside organisations or individuals throughout the year.
