We are asked all the time if simulation-based training is really effective. The answer is a YES. Simulation training dates back to 1950s and has proven to be an effective training tool for the military and first responders. Before pilots fly the world’s most advanced fighter jets, they fly first on simulators. Emergency vehicle operators use simulators to learn safe driving maneuvers in emergency response situations without endangering themselves or the public.
So we know simulation works for pilots and military but does it work for training new and experience drivers? YES. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NHTSA, “Driving simulators allow active learning by making it possible to give immediate feedback on driver performance.” Moreover, a simulator provides a safe place to learn critical errors . . . without causing harm to the driver or others on the road.
We now know that simulation is a viable tool for training drivers, but what about Virtual Driver Interactive simulation training? Does it really work? YES. Both James Madison University and Lehigh Valley Network Hospital recently conducted studies using our simulators and One Simple Decision training program. Both found that the students completing the program stated that they are less likely to text or drive impaired in the future. UPS conducted their own study while having their fleet drivers use our Virtual Hazard Detection (VHD) program and their crash rates reduced 38%. The US Post Office uses VHD as well and has had only 1 backing accident since they implemented the simulator in their Tampa office compared to last year when there were 26.
By augmenting behind-the-wheel training with simulation, it provides endless hours of instruction that’s proven to reduce texting and driving as well as avoid collisions – it’s a technology-based tool that works.
