Pre-Learner drivers can now safely learn the complex controls of a motor vehicle in a totally safe and non stressful environment away from the hectic and dangerous roads we all drive on daily.
The driving techniques that licensed drivers take for granted are key elements in teaching Pre Learner students the skills of driving in the real world.
For instance, Learner Books detail the rules of the road, but have you ever stopped to think that they don't teach the student how to use a clutch, how and when to brake safely, the consequences of turning a steering wheel severely when you are travelling at fast speeds around a corner etcetera. The fact is, that when a student passes his or her learners exam and obtains their ?L-Plate? licence, they are expected to know how to drive a car immediately without any training whatsoever. In the TAG TS4000 simulator, they are taught the skills required BEFORE they hit the road.
At the click of a mouse, students can be taught driving skills required in day and night driving, on wet and dry roads, in quiet and busy streets or freeways, in amongst law abiding or erratic other road users and in any number of differing intersection configurations.
A major cause of accidents on our roads is driver distraction. Texting or talking on a mobile telephone, programming and reading a GPS Unit, changing CD's or radio stations, even a simple task like turning on the air conditioner can all be fatal distractions whilst driving in the real world. By recreating these scenarios in the TS4000, the student has a means of watching and learning the consequences of their driving actions while being distracted. This post drive tuition can occur AFTER their lesson through the generated reports and recorded DVD of the drive.
Hazard perception is taught globally at learner driver stage but do we teach hazard management enough? Using the TS4000, any number of dangerous on road situations can be programmed into the software to create a potentially fatal scenario. What if in the real world a truck pulls out from a side street without warning? The student may see the truck, but what actions do they take? Do they avoid it, collide with it or cause an accident? By replicating this scene and numerous other hazardous situations, the simulator becomes a crucial tool in teaching perception awareness and more importantly the management thereof.
BEST OF ALL FOR THE STUDENTS, THEIR TRAINING IS CONDUCTED IN A REAL VEHICLE
IN A 100% SAFE, EFFECTIVE AND ENJOYABLE ENVIRONMENT.
