Research conducted by Virginia Tech Transportation Institute showed simulator-based training systems provide “the opportunity to train drivers in a potentially lower cost and safer environment than traditional behind-the-wheel training methods” and hold promise for increasing the efficiency and quality of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver training for both novice and experienced drivers. –Fleet Owner Magazine
