Going for driving lessons can be a pretty harrowing experience for first timers, but with the advent of technology kids no longer need to sneak into their father’s rides in the middle of the night just to experience driving some stick. Drivers Ed Portable for the DS aims to provide a fun way for new drivers to study the written portion of the driver’s license exam, with the aim to get across the message of just how serious road rules really are. It could turn out the other way though, as kids might think that driving is like a video game and place less value on lives while behind the wheel.
Drivers Ed Portable will feature two modes: Test and Train. Test mode will include sample tests for the written part of the driver’s license examination for all 50 US states, 13 Canadian provinces and territories, as well as Spain, Italy, France, Germany and the United Kingdom. User progress will be tracked, so the player will know where they need to improve their study in order to be successful in their actual test. Train mode will include three fun and educational mini-games targeted to new drivers.
Drivers Ed Portable will be out sometime this fall in supported countries.Follow:GamingTop StoriesTransportation
