iDes K53 Licence
K53 Simulator Training


Afraid of learning to drive? The iDes vSIM driving simulators procedurally prepare you on how to drive step-by-step. The training includes how to operate the controls and understanding the gauges and warnings of an actual vehicle. The simulator course is modular and the student progressively completes a 16 lesson driving course that starts with the basic moving off procedures and ends up with a heavy traffic driving scenario. An automated virtual instructor assesses the student against the rules of the road, signs, the correct use of the vehicle controls and the K53 driving standard. Once the student understands the basic operations of the vehicle the student can then train themselves, thereby saving instructor time and costs. This training is currently offered at the iDes Academies in Pretoria, Durban and Rustenburg or at any of our national partners.
