On May 10, 2018, DCP- PCR Devendra Arya under the able guidance of Spl. CP Sanjay Baniwal launched an e-Learning driving test programme for PCR drivers at the old police line, Delhi, with the view to upgrading the driving skills in the electronic age.
Police Control Room (PCR) vans are the first responders to calls/information received regarding distress or emergency and termed as the backbone of Delhi for 24 x 7 x 365. Being the first responders, the duration of the time a PCR van takes to reach the place of incidence is of great importance, which certainly needs well-trained drivers.
In order to improve driving skills of the drivers posted in PCR Unit, a ‘Driving Simulator’ is installed in MT/PCR, P & L Delhi. The drivers of PCR unit will be given a "Free Run" training on the driving simulator during the time their vehicles are under repair at MT Section. To assess and reinforce the knowledge of the drivers, a computer-based test has been designed, which tests the driver’s knowledge on traffic signals, rules relating to MV driving, mechanism of vehicles and general awareness about traffic sense. The test is so well designed that if any driver lags behind in the test, he will need to appear in another training session at driving simulator for further improvement. The training will continue till the trainee gives correct answers to all the questions displayed on the computer screen. The simulator training & testing will improve the driving skills of the drivers deployed on PCR vans, thereby improving services of Delhi Police for the callers in distress.
