One hour on the simulator represents 1.6 hours of driving lessons. Driving on the driving simulator is very intensive, and therefore very educational.
You can learn to drive without having been in the car! All necessary parts can be practiced in the driving simulator such as vehicle control, intersections, highways, etc. (See the different lessons in the table below). In addition, the driving simulator can be set to the regular (shift) car or the automatic.
Alblas Verkeersschool is one of the few traffic schools in the Netherlands with its own driving simulator. This allows you to practice risk-free in various real-world traffic situations. The driving simulator mimics them lifelike.
The driving simulator is also the perfect way to practice if you suffer from fear of failure or driving anxiety. And the great thing is that you can practice with the driving simulator as young as 16. This will quickly save you many driving lessons on public roads.
For the driving simulator, several packages can be purchased and in addition, rides cards can be purchased for lessons of your choice (see top right of screen).
When driving simulator?
Driving in the simulator is a good preparation and complement to driving lessons in traffic. You practice looking in mirrors, approaching and taking intersections and traffic circles, and anticipating various traffic situations.
You also learn to shift gears risk-free when you drive a car in the simulator.
Are you struggling with a particular situation? Then just practice this one again. Of course, an instructor will be there to guide you.
