The Future of Driver Training
Safe driving requires control of a high tech vehicle while sharing congested roads with an increasing number of dangerous, irresponsible drivers. There have been significant changes for drivers over the past 60 years but NO improvement with how they’re trained. The U.S. pays a tragic price for this minimal preparation. Each day, 110 people are killed and 12,603 are seriously injured on our roads. More than 90% of these are preventable, making them “crashes” not “accidents.”
The Apex Virtual Vehicle© (AVV) was designed to fill the dangerous skill gap between having a driver’s license and preventing crashes on today’s challenging roads. Our AVV training technology provides both novice and veteran drivers with a safe, hands-on driving experience while receiving expert coaching and evaluation.
Apex has successfully trained more than 12,000 drivers – as well as creating hundreds of training programs for an array of driving abilities and vehicles. We used this expertise to build the AVV, which features a unique cockpit that moves away from gaming or research-based models to one specifically built for driver training. Our software breaks down the science of crash prevention into individual techniques, which are isolated and practiced until muscle memory and competence are achieved, then assimilates these skills into various driving environments to develop safe driving habits.
