Driver simulator training comes to you!

MnDOT offers on-site simulator training around the state for anyone who operates a snowplow, single-unit truck, or a combination of a truck and trailer. The training is designed for new or veteran drivers, allowing them to improve their ability to recognize and react to a variety of road conditions and hazards to better manage risk.

The interactive driving simulation system—the first of its kind in Minnesota—includes two simulators housed in a 32-foot self-contained trailer with a classroom slideout, enabling the training to take place at any location.

Throughout 2017 and 2018, the simulator will be traveling around Minnesota. Check out the simulator schedule to see when the training will be available in your area, and contact Andrew Kubista at 651-366-3560 or andrew.kubista@state.mn.us to schedule a session.

The cost per four-hour training session is $600, with a maximum of six students per session. Cities and counties are encouraged to work together to fill a session.

The training is worth 0.5 Roads Scholar Program credit. Visit Minnesota LTAP's training page for details.
