Driver Training Simulator software offers an inexpensive method of learning to drive without having to get behind the wheel of a real car. Using specially developed software loaded up to the latest computer hardware, monitors and simulation controllers (i.e. a steering wheel, pedals and gear levers which plug into the computer running the software) you can have a realistic simulation of driving a real car which is coupled with a virtual instructor in order to teach you both vehicle control, visual scanning and observing the rules of the road, whatever country you are in. In fact, Carnetsoft is a leading developer of driving simulation software that offers many versions of their simulator which creates a virtual environment (scenery, left or right-hand driving, road signage, instructor language etc) in many different countries including United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, most of Europe, and even Asia.
Many people will think of a Car Simulator as just a fun game, perhaps found at an arcade or in the home of a serious racing game enthusiast, but they have many serious real-world applications. As well as for driver training or instruction, they are useful for assessment of driver fitness and conducting scientific research into driving behaviour. Driver fitness is important to test particularly with an aging population or in the case of degenerative neurological conditions. In fact, car simulators can even be used in a clinical setting to assess and treat fear of driving, to test for sleeping disorders, and for rehabilitation purposes.
