All volunteers (and employees) driving minibuses for the National Trust are required to be MiDAS-certified (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme). This involves training in the safe driving of minibuses, and both practical and theory assessments. My previous certification had lapsed during my time in Japan and so I had to re-do the training. The course took place at the Hunter basecamp on the edge of Haslemere in Surrey, 10th-11th May 2002.
