When a new driver is thrown behind the wheel for the first time they are being asked to learn and execute all of the basic physical fundamentals of driving with absolutely no prior physical training. Even more daunting, they must do this while figuring out how to manage a 3000 pound machine for the first time. If that isn’t enough, they will also be entering a driving environment that doesn’t have the time or patience for novice drivers. For some, the negative experiences that they incur in the first few hours turns them off from driving altogether…but finally there is a better way! When you are able to control the learning environment and build up the muscle memory required with zero risk, new drivers become more coordinated, comfortable, and confident in a much shorter period of time. In other words, you can keep bouncing off curbs and screaming as you enter merge lanes for the foreseeable future, or utilize the same technology that surgeons, pilots, and others are using to learn more safely and efficiently.
As an instructor in the Manitoba high school Driver Education program parents often tell me that they wish that the time commitment for the course was shorter (50 hours in total) and that they had the option to choose their in-car instructors (randomly assigned). Every student that takes the VR Driving School program with Frontier Driving Academy will learn their basic fundamental driving skills in the VR Driving Simulator and therefore will become more confident and safer drivers in a shorter period of time. Also, you will have the opportunity to choose your driving instructor and enjoy the convenience of pick up and drop off at home for the road lessons.
The enterprise software utilized in this simulator is specifically designed for driver training. Everything is adjustable to the specific needs of the client including the driving environment, amount of traffic and pedestrians, weather conditions, type of vehicle, and so much more. In addition, each client will have their own file that tracks their driving habits during the session. Every driving error is logged, and more importantly, as they improve they can quantify the improvement.
Students will spend the first two hours of the VR Driving School Package on the driving simulator in our offices at 2151 Portage Avenue before heading out for their four hours of road lessons. This is just the right amount of time to teach them the basic fundmentals of driving and also introduce them to weather and road conditions that they will encounter in the real world like snow and ice, rain, fog, night driving, and gravel roads.
Absolutely, no license is required to begin training on the simulator but you would need to get your 5L (Learners) license prior to the start of our Road Lessons.
Quite the contrary, our testing has shown that if the first hours of training are done on the simulator, independence is achieved in about half of the length of time that it would normally take with just road lessons. This means that you not only save money but your precious time as well. The VR Driving School Package is $350 and includes 2 – 1 Hour sessions on the VR Driving Simulator and 4 – 60 Minute Road Lessons, the perfect way to confidently get the new driver behind the wheel.
