How a simulator helps you before you start driving

The need for simulators

As per the Motor Vehicles Act and the CMVR, a trainee is supposed to master driving skills by spending 10 hours training on the road. It is not easy for a novice to acquire the necessary skill level within such a short span of time. Therefore, to save on the limited time available, Maruti Suzuki Driving School has developed and started using simulators.

Challenge for the trainee

Driving on Indian roads can be a challenging experience for a trainee. One needs to deal with a variety of risks and significant pressure while driving on the road. Therefore, it is necessary that a novice learns to master different controls such as steering, pedals and gears, one at a time.

Although this speeds up learning, one cannot learn this while driving a real car. This is because all controls would have to be managed by the trainee simultaneously.

Benefits of a simulator

When trainees start using a simulator, they can choose the specific control they wish to practice with. The simulator manages the rest of the controls.

A simulator’s dimensions are designed in such a way that all controls mimic a real Maruti Suzuki car. Therefore, the trainee knows where exactly the pedals are located. For instance, one can identify the gear by just placing one’s hand on the gear level.

As soon as the controls are mastered, the trainee can focus on learning various complicated maneuvers. Some of these include lane changing, overtaking, merging with traffic and driving on roundabouts. This enhances the training experience and substantially develops the trainee’s confidence.

Why theory is as important as practical to learn driving?

In order to be a good driver, one must always equip oneself with all the theory lessons while learning to drive. And one of the best ways to do it is by enrolling in a driving school. Tangible benefits for an educated driver include saving close to 12% of fuel related expenses and 60% when it comes to safety related faults.

A good driving school will make sure that the participants are equipped to handle emergencies, use first aid, react correctly for situations emerging on roads like road rage incidents, aware of the symbols lighting up on the car’s instrument cluster, and honouring the rights of others on the road.

Here are some of the most crucial aspects that highlight the importance of theory lessons while learning to drive.

THEORY BUILDS CONFIDENCE

Theory lessons often include all those aspects of owning and driving a car that can only be learnt through classroom input. A good driving school appoints experts to teach the theory lessons. These experts communicate effectively and give attention to each participant. The practical lessons learnt from the driving-coach need to be backed with theoretical knowledge if you want to be a confident driver. At Maruti Suzuki Driving School, we ensure that our instructors are focused on helping the learners develop the skills required to drive safely and confidently.

KNOW THE LAW

A carefully designed curriculum of a driving school covers a wide range of topics. A lot of these topics are about the inner workings of a vehicle that includes technical details of how a car functions. Some of the most crucial aspects of theory input are identifying the traffic rules and all the important signs, symbols, indications, map-legends/keys and several other nuances which are not always present at one-go during the practical lessons on the road.

Theory lessons in a driving school also focus on several legal aspects. A participant is made aware of the process of registration of a vehicle, obtaining a driver's license, traffic rules, parking rules, towing rules, suspension of driver's license, drunken driving, rash and negligent driving and most importantly the penalties for traffic offences. Trainees are also educated on different types of insurance covers available, their pro and cons, and the procedure to be followed for claim processing.

SAFETY IS SUPREME

Safe roads are the hallmark of a civilized society. Our love for driving is always tested on the touchstone of traffic rules. A good driver diligently follows traffic rules to ensure safety. Maruti Suzuki Driving School emphasizes the importance of safe driving by not only teaching the theory lessons but also exposing the learners to simulators. Theory input shows the details of the safety features of a car and how to use those features. We share the road with every other driver, therefore, it is mandatory to learn the rules of safe driving

ANATOMY OF A CAR

Theory lessons introduce the learner to the structure of a car including all of its important components. This knowledge is necessary in order to drive confidently. These lessons are interesting and helpful. Learners are taught about the most important aspects of a car engine, chassis, crank linkage, fuel supply system, cooling mechanism, lubrication, ignition, starting line, clutch, brake system, gears, battery etc. Experts often show the link between the structure of a car and the rules of driving. For instance, an expert driver can reduce gearbox repairs by up to 40%. Learners are encouraged to apply the theory to their driving sessions on the road. This process helps build confidence through awareness of traffic rules and safe driving skills.

RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

We must always remember that the right to drive can only be enjoyed if we are responsible drivers. The responsibilities of a driver are learnt in detail through theory lessons. These rights and responsibilities are codified in the form of important laws such as the Rules of Road Regulations and Motor Vehicles Act. These codes prescribe punishments for violation of the rules.

It is our sincere endeavour to create confident drivers who believe in safe driving. We have designed a Learner's Course which spans 21 hours, including 10 hours of practical and 11 hours of theory input. Our carefully designed theory lessons ensure that the driver not only has excellent driving skills but also sound knowledge of theory.
