Our Drivers

Leszan Drivers

   

Our caring drivers make all the difference

It is our drivers who make Leszan so special. They have been carefully selected for their patience and understanding of how they can make all the difference to our passengers’ journeys.

 

Full training to transport people in wheelchairs

Our drivers’ caring attitude is complemented by the on-going training we provide, specifically for the transport of people with special needs, disabilities or the elderly.

 

All our drivers are MIDAS* trained by our own in house trainer, which includes a thorough instruction in securing and transporting people in wheelchairs. What’s more, they are licensed by the local Council, have been checked with the Criminal Records Bureau and approved fit to drive after a medical examination.

 

People first, disability second

We place a special emphasis on:
  • Safety. Passengers are safely secured in their seat and if in a wheelchair these are properly secured in the vehicle.
  • Comfort. The driver will make sure passengers are comfortable before driving off. The vehicle will then be driven with great care to ensure a smooth journey.
  • Dignity. Passengers will be addressed as ladies and gentlemen or children and not as disabled persons. Of course, appropriate help is always available.


*MIDAS is the Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme, a nationally recognised standard for the assessment and training of minibus drivers.  We have all our own in house fully qualified MIDAS Instructors to deliver training.
