Amanda’s in the driving seat

by Dave Barry

Scarborough Dial a Ride has a new trainer.

Amanda Morton’s area of expertise is Midas, which stands for minibus driver awareness scheme.

Introduced in 1995, Midas is a nationally recognised driving qualification designed to raise the safety standards of drivers of minibuses, with nine to 16 passenger seats.

Dial a Ride advises all uniformed groups, clubs, charities and organisations with access to either their own or another group’s minibus to put their drivers through this course.

The charity has been providing Midas training since 1996.

The cost varies depending on group sizes.
