Hauppauge Simulator

It is extremely important in this day and age to be able to know your vehicle and how to react to a situation that may arise while you're driving. Often times, a new driver is nervous or skittish when driving an actual vehicle for the first time. For this reason, we have implemented a state of the art driving simulator. This will allow a new driver to confidently become comfortable with many of the roads unexpected issues with no danger. We have several simulations that will give that real driving experience. This is also a good way to get that "peace of mind" for anyone that has not driven in a while and are looking to get back their independence. Please call for more information.
