Minibus awareness provides both classroom based theory training and on-road driving assessment for all minibus drivers. Additional training is available for drivers who will be transporting passengers with sight and walking difficulties, including wheelchair users.
An element of this scheme is that drivers must attend refresher training at least every three years to keep abreast of changes in legistlation, road environment & vehicles.
