Studies by the Universities of Utah, Iowa and Arizona (in conjunction with the Utah DOT, Iowa DOT and Arizona DOT) show that drivers who receive L-3 DPA simulator training have:
- Reduced accidents
- Reduced cost of accidents
- Higher fuel efficiency
- Reduced training time
They achieved these improvements, regardless of their years of experience. It also enabled them to select better recruits. Simulation training also:
- Reduces companies’ insurance costs by reducing their liability exposure. (Simulator-trained drivers can sometimes qualify for personal insurance discounts, as high as 10 to 15%. Ask your insurance agent.)
- Reduces capital investment for vehicles. By employing simulators for training, vehicles are spared heavy use, require less maintenance and last longer overall.
