SimuRide Professional - Driving Simulator
SimuRide - The Professional Driving Simulator is an interactive, three dimensional computer program that allows users to experience driving in a safe and controlled environment. If you've never driven before and have just started learning, or even if you've driven for years but want to learn how to drive a different kind of vehicle, like a manual or commercial vehicle; SimuRide Professional Edition is the driving simulator for you.
With controls that function and respond the same way a real vehicle does, complimented with a panoramic, 3D virtual environment, SimuRide Professional Edition offers users a venue to practice their driving, before they get behind the wheel for real. Not only is this economical, savings on gas and vehicle maintenance, but it also safe guards lives, as there are no pedestrians in the simulated environment that can be hurt by an inexperienced driver; and the student driver remains safe behind the wheel of their simulated car.
SimuRide PE has a wide variety of locations and settings that allow the student driver to practice driving various types of vehicles under a multitude of conditions. Users can practice winter skid control, night time driving, driving through heavy fog and much more, all from the comfort of a driving instructional facility or school. Our truck simulator options allows drivers to practice driving commercial trucks (semi's, diesel trucks); and other CDL vehicles, like coach and school buses. SimuRide PE also includes emergency response vehciles, such as police car and fire truck.
SimuRide is affordable, whether it’s for professional instruction use at a driving school, utilizing the panoramic, three-monitor setup; or if you’re using the single monitor version at home on your PC or laptop.
We offer a variety of packages for flexible purchasing based on your needs.
SimuRide PE Software only includes a USB Dongle Key, which serves as your license and software authentication; and a download link to install the latest version of SimuRide PE

SimuRide Driving Simulator with Distracted Driving
Our professional driving simulator is designed for use in truck/bus and regular driving schools. It can work with up to four computer screens using a single computer; creating a versatile, panoramic view. Installing the software to work with two-pedal or three-pedal components, a gear shifter console and a steering wheel allows the student driver to learn and experience driving without being inside an actual car. The steering wheel turns 900 degrees and provides resistance during driving maneuvers. All these components are available in our On-Line Store.
But even though the student driver is not exposed to the road during the first few hours of learning how to drive, the SimuRide driving simulator recreates for the student the experience of driving an actual vehicle. The driving simulation software makes the students work with different driving scenarios by reproducing various driving terrains and adding to it some atmospheric factors that affect driving. Student drivers can also experience the feeling of driving at night, an experience that most driving schools are unable to provide because they only operate during the daytime.
To gauge the progress of the student driver, the SimuRide driving simulator software has the ability to record the mistakes of the user in working the steering wheel, changing gears, ignoring a stop sign or red light, forgetting about the seat belt or exceeding speed limits. A message about these mistakes is delivered and the information is recorded for the instructor, thus allowing the instructor to assess the progress of the student driver.
|Using SimuRide driving simulator instead of learning to drive from behind an actual steering wheel has many benefits:|
SimuRide driving simulator represents a good investment for driving schools. SimuRide Pro is much more economical than other driving simulation tools and instruments on the market today; it is the least expensive alternative on the market, and at a comparable quality.
The three-pedal component with gear shifter console allows the user to change gears manually, recording any clutch related error in the report. For trucks, the double clutching method can be selected, where forgetting a double clutch, an increase in RPMs in neutral during a down shift, more than 50% clutch pedal pressure while up/down shifting, or too low/high RPMs will display an error message immediately.
The PC driving simulator is specially designed so that, for example, the student driver will feel resistance on the steering wheel during turning manoeuvres and tremors when the vehicle hits the curb or reaches the road shoulder. Rear-view and side-view mirrors, blind spot view together with the aerial-view are simulated, to help performing parallel parking or other activities
requiring such views.
Truck-driver and CDL student drivers can easily practice driving a semi truck in city traffic, taking wide turns, manuvering through a roundabout or backing up a long straight road to the dock. The truck simulator settings in SimuRide PE also comes with the feature to practice coupling and uncoupling a trailer; and when combined with Aplusb Software's SimuShiftKnob, enables 10, 13 and 18 gear shifting on select CDL virtual vehciles.
The visual scenes reproduce city, highway, country, maze and manoeuvring lot environments, with or without traffic and with different obstacles. To increase the difficulty level, various atmospheric conditions can be applied. Realistic sound is correlated with road conditions, engine RPM and speed.
The multi-display upgrade allows users to run and view the SimuRide driving simulator application across three monitors generating a 180-degree horizontal view. This feature forces the student to turn his or her head and realistically imitates the driving environment.
The SimuRide Pro driving simulator includes:

For customers who are not certain about our Simulator, we offer a TRIAL package. This version of SimuRide Pro driving simulator (based on August 2010 edition) limits you to 50 practice sessions (instead of the unlimited practice sessions you get with the full version). This should allow you enough time to test and explore the many functions and benefits of the SimuRide Professional Edition. Having used the trial version, we are confident that you will want to upgrade to the full version. The cost of the TRIAL edition is $200, which will be deducted from the purchase price of the full SimuRide package, if you upgrade within 90 days of purchasing the TRIAL edition.
This $200 TRIAL edition is ideal for private user who wants to learn driving vehicles with the manual transmission or practice
advance shifting (double clutching). It also gives enough time for CDL student to master semi-truck backing up or driving a truck in the narrow city streets. Beginner driver with 50 trials can practice for the road exam. User can select 50 times any type of vehicle, terrain and conditions to practice. Each trial can take up to 45 minutes. The package contains the simulator software (50 rides) and the hardware USB Dongle Key. No additional software is included with Trial edition and a dongle key has to be send back for reprogramming to be entitled for $200 deduction with the purchase of full version.
Updates & Upgrades:
March 17, 2016
- Implemented drivers for the custom controls and a Logitech G29 steering wheel with a gear shifter.
- Additional vehicles attached: Straight Truck with a Trailer, Straight Truck with 2 Trailers, and Tractor with 2 Trailers, called a Combination, Double/Triple or RoadTrain.
February 10, 2016
- Map Editor (Beta Version), to create new and edit existing scenarios.
- Remote Control, to command simulation from the remote located computer by the instructor.
September 10, 2015
- Added Cargo Tank Truck Rollover Feature; special vehicle and scenario is created.
When a truck travels along a curved path, centrifugal force causes it to lean away from the direction of the curve. The result can be a “rollover” in which the truck overturns.
Tractor-trailers are particularly vulnerable because of the trailer’s high center of gravity and frequently unstable loads.
Over 78% of rollovers involve driver error; therefore, we came with the unique approach to reduce Tanker RollOvers, giving a driver the opportunity to practice to prevent such events.
Practicing with SimuRide a driver will learn how to:
- Avoid sudden movements that may lead to rollovers,
- Control a load in turns and on straight roadways,
- Identify high risk areas on roads,
- Remains alert and attentive behind the wheel,
- Control speed and maintain proper speed.
