Virtual Reality Simulator

Virtual Reality Simulator

At every turn, I told Mike that he started too fast yet on the next turn he still started it too fast. I stopped the car.
I asked "How often in your life time do you want to lose control of your car and wind up off the road?" He responded "Never", a good answer.
"Then you need to start your turns slower. I promise you, that for the speed you are using, some day you WILL lose control.
10 minutes later, we were approaching a "T" shaped intersection. I asked Mike to turn left. Intentionally, I did not tell him to slow down nor did I step on the instructor's brake. Mike needed to realize on his own that his speed was too fast.
We are now in the field.
"What went wrong, Mike?"
"I didn't slow down before the turn."
About a year later, by chance, I met Mike and asked him "What do you remember from driving school?"
"I remember driving off the road. That one thing taught me everything."
The experience meant far more to him than all of the coaching and explaining.
I cannot have every student run off of the road. As such EXTRA MILE Driving School purchased a 360° simulator from Drive Square Inc.
It has been shown that with the use of real car equipment and a broad angled simulation environment that the chance of a new driver becoming involved in a collision is reduced by about 50%, Systems Technology, Inc., Paper No. 691)
With this simulator, if the student turns their head left they see someone passing them. If they turn their head right they see someone on the sidewalk. If they turn their head and look behind them they see the truck driving behind them.
We cannot encourage dangerous situations during in-car lessons and we can only discuss dangerous situations in the classroom. The simulator helps the student experience dangerous situations.
New drivers need the experience that seasoned drivers have to help them anticipate concerns on the road. The simulator provides new drivers with our seasoned experiences.
Our combination of class, simulator, and car make us one of the best driving schools in eastern Ontario. We care about how they will drive.
