MiDAS Passenger Assistants Training Scheme

PATS, developed jointly by CTAUK and Hampshire County Council, provides a nationally recognised standard of training to people whose role it is to provide care and assistance to passengers travelling by road.

Following the MiDAS modular format, PATS training is available throughout the UK. Unlike MiDAS, PATS members make a commitment to assess the training needs of staff performing the role of passenger assistant on a vehicle. These people may be paid staff, or volunteers and they may be performing the dual role of driver/carer.

PATS has five modules, an induction module undertaken by all, then modules looking at assisting passengers with disabilities (but not wheelchair users), assisting wheelchair users, assisting children and young people and assisting older people.

  • Module A: The role of the passenger assistant- This is the foundation

    module for all passenger  assistants. This module enables drivers/carers

    to understand the role of the passenger assistant.


The other modules you complete will depend on the needs of the people you work with.

  •  Module B1: Passenger awareness and assistance-This modules covers

     awareness of passenger needs and how to assist, looking at individuals

     who don’t use a wheelchair. 

  • Module B2: Assisting passengers who travel in wheelchairs- B2 covers

     similar aspects to B1 but focuses specifically on passengers in


  • Module C1: Supervising children and young people with special needs-

     For PA’s who work with children or young people with special needs 

  • Module C2: Working with adults who need care and supervision- PA’s

     who work with vulnerable adults.
