Simulation-based program to prevent distracted and impaired driving among young drivers.

Teach Young Drivers to Make Better Decisions Behind the Wheel.

When it comes to distracted driving, young people are among the most likely to text and drive. The Distracted Driving Experience is the first simulation-based impaired & distracted driving program designed to prevent destructive driving behaviors among teens and young adults. Students learn first-hand the dangers of distracted, impaired, and drowsy driving while driving in a real-world environment.


The Effects on Their Performance is Measurable.

Students interact with some of the most common in-car distractions such phone calls, texting, navigation systems, music, and social media apps. Traffic violations and erratic behaviors are monitored and displayed in real time. Common driving violations include swerving, running stop signs or signal lights, making wrong turns, driving in the bike or center lanes, and hard braking are all measured and reported on screen, demonstrating the difficulty of driving while distracted or impaired by drugs and alcohol.

Results Backed Up By Data.

VDI’s distracted driving programs have been used for over a decade by law enforcement, hospitals,
insurance companies and other non-profits with measurable results. Surveys have demonstrated an immediate change in awareness and behavior.


In the Media


We are bringing the Nationwide Insurance Text Simulator to Lancaster High School and as many other schools as we can this spring in hopes that these new drivers will learn the dangers of using their mobile devices in a controlled situation rather than seeing them become another real-life tragedy.

Grant Getzoni, Insurance Agent – Nationwide

I think (the simulator) gives us an opportunity for a controlled environment. To make sure that people understand it CAN and WILL happen to you. It’s not a matter of it, it’s when.

Mike Kindhart, State Trooper – Illinois State Police

I can’t say enough about the customer support. This is the difference between Virtual Driver and many other companies.

Todd Emanuel, Mayo Clinic Emergency Services – Mayo Clinic

It’s a great interactive tool, it’s fun and it’s a great for the officers to talk to students about this. It’s amazing how quickly they go from having no problems, and when they pull out their cell phones they start crossing the center line and they may start speeding without even knowing it.

Nick Jarmusz, Community Outreach & Safety Representative, AAA

Enhancing the driver training program at these schools helps advance NJM’s 100-year commitment to safety. These simulators provide valuable experience with a variety of driving challenges, so these young people can develop safe driving habits that can last a lifetime.

Bernie Flynn, CEO – New Jersey Manufacturer’s

So many people request to use it [driving simulator] for their events because it is getting the message across how unsafe it is to be too distracted while you’re driving.
