Development of simulation-based training modules for the SGI graduated licencing program

Proper education and training are necessary to ensure young drivers have the appropriate knowledge and skills to drive safely. The current Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) graduated licensing program has education components and some in-car practice sessions, however, data shows that many young drivers are still involved in accidents due to a lack of experience driving in difficult or challenging situations. Working with both SGI and young drivers, the purpose of this project is to develop and pilot test new driving scenarios on a driving simulator that can be used to train young drivers to improve their real-world driving skills. These new driving scenarios will eventually be included as part of a revised SGI graduate licensing program for young drivers.
