While road training is an imperative aspect of any professional driving course, especially one designed for beginners, there are many advantages to utilizing simulator training. This method of training allows for greater consistency and quantitative feedback. What’s more, it also adds an element of safety to driver’s training and reduces damage to equipment. Once a driver has practiced certain basic and advanced maneuvers via a high-tech simulator, they are better prepared to execute those same maneuvers on the road more safely and confidently.
