Simulator Training at Modern Training Ontario
Learning to shift a truck with a standard transmission and back it up are critical skills needed to ensure your success in the trucking industry. Our Simulator programs provide students with self-paced training. New drivers can practice how to shift a non-synchronized transmission and learn the art of backing.

- Simulate multiple drive train configurations
- The Driver Training Simulator offers adjustable road grades and vehicle weights
- Learn the basics of backing to allow for an easier transition to your in-truck training
- Practice any maneuver, including dangerous ones, in a realistic and safe environment
- Students experience the virtual consequences of their driving behaviors under a variety of realistic conditions (i.e. weather, road, and traffic conditions, isolated or in combination)
- Learn faster with lower stress, better feedback and less wasted time
- Control the learning pace in a controlled environment
- Develop realistic confidence as you progress from easy to difficult settings and from simple to complex skills
- View instant replays of your performances, including overhead views
- Practice specific skills until they can be performed automatically, e.g. from gear shifting to backing to fuel economy to roll-over prevention
- Receive reliable, objective performance scores

The simulator is no substitute for hands on training. It is a training tool that will allow you to practice shifting and backing as much as you want. Simulator training is a proven training aid and is designed to help build confidence and comfort with basic vehicle control habits.
Use your driving time to focus on more advanced driving techniques that can only be developed once you master the basics of transmission control and backing skills.
