With the UT traffic police all ready to install driving simulators at the traffic park in Sector 23, city residents will soon be able to take the driving test without bringing their own vehicles to the park.
The simulators will offer actual driving-like situations under various conditions and check the reaction of the driver. According to Maneesh Chaudhary, Senior Superintendent of Police (Traffic), the project will help the residents improve upon their driving and, thus, road accidents will be reduced.
The traffic police has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Honda Motorcycle and Scooter Private Ltd with the aim of promoting road safety. Under the MoU, the company will adopt the traffic education park in Sector 23.

Chaudhary said, “The company will be installing driving simulators at the traffic park. We have two empty rooms at the park which will be converted into laboratories, where driving tests will be taken. Initially, there will be two-wheeler simulators only, since the company wants to promote their two-wheelers.”
He added, “The project will cost between Rs 20 and Rs 40 lakh. The simulators will be equipped with a live screen which will offer real-life traffic situations, as on the road.”
The simulators will test a rider on all driving aspects, including his/her readiness to stop at red lights, alertness, balancing on narrow stretches, turning, managing traffic jams and highways. CCTV cameras will also be installed in the laboratories.
Chaudhary said the simulators would become functional next month.
“Such simulators have already been installed in Jaipur, Bhubaneswar and New Delhi. They are already getting a good response. After getting a feedback, we may also install simulators for cars as well,” the SSP added.
The UT Transport Department has asked the traffic police to make a presentation on the simulators at the traffic park on August 12.
