Commercial Motor Vehicle Simulation Technology to Improve Driver Training, Testing and Licensing Methods

The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility and extent to which commercial motor vehicle (CMV) simulator technology is being used in the training, testing, and/or licensing of CMV drivers. This report documents the results of a comprehensive effort that includes: a literature review, the development of functional requirements for CMV driving simulators, the experiences of other government agencies and private sector organizations with training simulators, and a description and assessment of United States and foreign CMV driving simulators. Conclusions and recommendations are presented for further research and development.
