Download this Police1 driving simulators buying guide to learn key steps for product selection, purchasing and implementation


Most police officers spend a substantial portion of their shift behind the wheel, and roughly half of all line-of-duty fatalities are vehicle related.

Part of the reason police don’t drive better than they do is inadequate, infrequent training. Highway patrols and state police tend to do a good job at training in emergency vehicle operations, but local police might get a week or so of intermittent behind-the-wheel (BTW) time during the basic academy, and then not receive any refresher or update training for years, if ever.

A driving simulator can’t replace a BTW course, but it can supplement it and serve as a refresher between “live” sessions. With a modern simulator, police trainers can create almost any scenario, run them as many times as needed, and produce documentation of the student’s performance, all without burning a drop of gas.
