A very enjoyable and helpful experience. Kevin had a nice pleasant manner and gave positive criticism professionally.

I will certainly be recommending it to my colleagues. I have taken on board the comments give to me.


This course was absolutely brilliant, I really enjoyed it. Our DAB Plus Trainer Gary was an excellent tutor on the day and explained everything so patiently and clearly.

It really made me think about my “BAD HABITS” I have picked up over 25 years driving and he also taught me the “Gear Gap Go” sequence. I have recommended this course to other colleagues for next year.

Gary also gave us information on things such as how fast an air bag deploys a, very shocking, benefits of winter tyres and many other interesting facts based on driving.

I was nervous to start with but he put me at ease right away with his humour.

Good session, the route and challenges i was given was put together very well and i had a lot of different situations to handle. The combination of the practical part together with some theory was good and the trainer used sufficient time to explain different situations.


I was pretty confident that my driving was pretty good and it was an excellent refresher that along the years you pick up bad habits.

I also learnt a few things that I had never know which is a bit alarming considering I had been driving for over ten years.

Gary is an excellent trainer and makes sure you feel relaxed. I would highly recommend this course to anyone no matter what age, ability or confidence level you have.


I have recently passed my D1 minibus test with DAB Plus, receiving 12 hours of training before hand from Gary Laing.

I found Gary to be an excellent trainer who has an easy to understand style of teaching which has helped me to become a safer, more intentional driver.

I have no doubt that I would not have been able to pass this test had it not been for the training I received before hand, Thanks Gary!

In our Midas training there was a useful introduction to the practical job, good background information and use of group learning, which allows experienced drivers to pass on good information.


Extremely interesting and constructive. Trainer friendly and informative.

Well worth doing.

I found this course very informative.

It highlighted several ‘BAD HABITS’ that I have picked up over the years. I am now aware of these and am consciously amending my driving habits.

I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who has been driving for a number of years, and feel that they would benefit from having bad habits highlighted.

The session content is excellent and the instructor is more than excellent, very experienced in terms of driving and teaching others, in terms of Language his English is very clear and well understanding especially as we are speaking English as our second Language, Gary is very patient and listen carefully to both of us.


Really enjoyed the theory of the Midas session. I feel a lot more knowledgeable about the safety and responsibilities of driving a minibus.
