Train the Driver
Hone Your Driving Skills
VirTra uses a unique approach to driving training. The V-DTS™—VirTra Driver Training Simulator—provides agencies with a superior immersive driving environment that focuses on cognitive learning instead of simply teaching one how to operate a vehicle. This powerful simulator helps teach and sustain trainees and seasoned officers alike in defensive emergency driving tactics utilized in the field.
The large screens and modern physics-based rendering captures a trainee’s attention, but the training value behind the simulation stems from the meticulous quality put into crafting the locations and scenarios. Created from the combined knowledge of internal experts and nationally-recognized industry partners, trainees are given a unique training experience that hones and maintains their driving skills.
Instructors can choose from specific, pre-authored training objectives—including all basic emergency driving skills such as the evasive maneuver and emergency braking—defensive driving techniques or free drive. Whether your agency requires a complete training experience or needs to brush up on the basics, the V-DTS is a perfect, versatile option.
