What Our Clients Say:

VDI’s driving simulators have proven to be a cost-effective and engaging way to provide refresher training before and us post office logo imageafter accidents to our Postal Carriers and Tractor/Trailer Operators.   More importantly, the simulation-based driver safety training has considerably reduced accident rates in the Suncoast District during our trial period compared to the same period last year.  In fact, we have had only one backing accident since we got the simulator in Tampa compared to last year when there were 26!

alachua 2We installed 13 VDI simulators this summer and our high school students have truly enjoyed the upgraded experience. These simulators teach everything from how speeding affects the physics of the car to the serious dangers associated with distracted driving. The sixteen lesson Driving Essentials program wonderfully complements our driver education classroom and lab components. Driving simulation allows my instructors to teach important lessons – like speeding or texting – that would be too dangerous to demonstrate on the road. The One Simple Decision program powerfully tackles the problem of distracted or impaired driving with realistic and hard-hitting scenarios.  Thank you again for providing such a useful and versatile driver education curriculum product.  The installation could not have gone smoother.  Your assistance throughout the procurement process and especially your “service after the sale” has been top notch.  We are extremely pleased with our VDI purchase.

The Virtual HD® simulator allows us to address driver safety in a new and exciting forum, as opposed to the traditional meeting forum, to continue to drive our safe driving focus.  Since the simulator is portable,  it also allows us to save on travel expenses by bringing the simulator to the employees, which helps us logistically.  The virtual lessons compliment and parallel our current Smith System driving philosophy giving us a more consistent safe driving message.

It’s a full program where you hear the sirens, policeman is knocking on your window.  Depending on the severity of the crash, you could wind up in the hospital.  But that’s not the end.  You end up in court.  The judge sentences you.  And it’s a very powerful statement.  The people that take it say it’s very powerful, and it makes them think.  I took it myself — opened my eyes.

Since July 2013 when we implemented the simulator in our UPS facility, we’ve seen a 38% reduction in crashes.  And, so far this year, we are trending well below last year’s numbers.

It’s as close to real life as you can get without putting someone in harm’s way.

Driving simulators allow active learning by making it possible to give immediate feedback on driver performance.  It is as close as a person can come to training on real roads with a licensed driving instructor, but without the crash risk.

The simulators help students practice potentially dangerous driving complications, like rain or snow, in a controlled setting.  They are incredibly helpful.

It gives the kids a chance to actually try texting and driving without facing the consequences.  We ask them to obey all the traffic laws, use turn signals and concentrate. The simulator shows them just how hard it is to do all of that at once.

I’ve been involved in the simulation presentation before and believe the simulator is making a difference.  We had several students come back to us after the program and tell us that they thought about putting their phones down and they haven’t used them since. So if we’re able to change the habits of one person while they’re driving, everything we’ve done to promote safe driving has been worth it.
