360° driving simulator at Patrick's driving school
The driving students at Patrick's driving school have the opportunity to to complete your first driving tests directly at the driving school. The DEGENER 360° simdrive car simulator is available for this purpose. The simulator is an ideal solution, especially for unsure student drivers, to take away the fear of driving and to familiarize themselves with the cockpit, the seating position and the pedals of a car in advance. Basic vehicle operation routines can be practiced in a protected room within the driving school.
The system is designed in such a way that, after a short introduction, novice drivers can practice on the device practically independently in 45-minute periods. Computerized instructions guide the exercises, while the student's behavior is monitored and commented on directly by the system. Incorrect actions will be corrected immediately. This calms the student driver and takes away the driving instructor's stress and worry about the vehicle: the simulator repeats everything patiently until the exercises are perfect. This saves time and excitement in the driving school car and saves everyone from unnecessary dangers in traffic.
Truck driving schools and professional driver training centers also benefit from the DEGENER 360° simdrive TRUCK truck and bus simulator, which was specially developed for driving license training for classes C / CE and D / DE (with an optionally available additional module).
