Minibus Driver Training

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 Castle Minibus is no longer able to offer practical driver training for D1 or MiDAS. We remain committed to the safety of our schools and recommend drivers are sufficiently trained so we have kept our driver training pages live for your information.
