Driver’s Education Through Simulation
By Jeffrey Neighbors

Nearly every high school student eagerly anticipates receiving their drivers license upon turning sixteen. This means the majority of these students will take drivers education and, for many students, it is a startling thing to begin driving a vehicle with little to no experience. However, through the helping hands of technology, students can now begin practicing anxiety-free via virtual simulation.

After a year of researching the capabilities of different driving simulators, the technology

drivers ed simulator
department decided the best choice was the STISIM Drive software. STISIM Drive software introduces beginning drivers to all of the scenarios they can and/or will experience on the road. 

With over 35 different and immersive scenarios including but not limited to rural settings, urban settings, rain, snow, and impaired driving, this software coupled with hands-on driving provides driver’s education students more preparation than they have had in previous years.

Head of driver’s education Danny Callison added that “Driving is a life skill, and Dr. Raleigh feels this [use of technology] is important.” This particular kind of technology was recommended by Oklahoma Highway Patrol as well as the Pryor School Board who then allowed for the expenditure on the STISIM software.

The simulator was installed by Pryor’s technology department in early August for approximately $9,000. Since its implementation, students have had the opportunity to use the machine during Tiger Time and during driver’s education.

Mimicking a video game, the software grades drivers based on their performance for instructors to get an idea of how students will perform in an actual vehicle when it comes time to drive. According to, “the STISIM Drive driving simulator provides a convincing wake-up call to the dangers of impaired driving and texting while driving. Measure every action and reaction. See a detailed performance report at the end of each drive.”

Thanks to Google and the Pryor Public School Board, PHS students now have a whole new opportunity to learn about anatomy of human and animal bodies. Most high school students have either seen or performed a dissection in their science class, be it a frog, worm, or pig.

However, not many students can say they have dissected a human cadaver.
