Acquiring a simulator to make learning to drive easier
Pôle Economie Solidaire Sud-Essonne
The Sud Essonne solidarity-based economy collective, or PES, works to:
- provide timely solutions to the mobility needs of individuals in integration programmes,
- build an assessment-based mobility course to foster the autonomy of individuals.
The mobility platform organises collective and intensive driving training courses to make learning to drive easier and prevent learners from dropping out of the programme. The project consists in acquiring a driving simulator with a view to:
- facilitating the integration of the beneficiaries assessed as having the greatest difficulties by providing them with use of the simulator for their first hours “behind the wheel”,
- correctly and comprehensively assessing the chances of the learners before involving them in a costly and not always adapted training process,
- working in depth on certain topics, including eco-driving,
- improving success rates by systematically providing initial training on the simulator, while maintaining an identical number of hours in a car,
- in the long term, reducing the cost of obtaining a licence, which would help a greater number of individuals.
