No CDL Required To Drive This Fully Simulated Peterbilt

See what happens when a Peterbilt Model 579 is converted into a full-sized simulator to replicate the experience of driving a fully loaded truck.

The tester noted, “Before experiencing the simulator, I knew there were challenges these big rig drivers faced—blind spots, increased braking distances, wide turns, etc—but only when you’re behind the wheel do those challenges become abundantly clear. Next time, I’ll think twice about pulling out in front of that tractor-trailer.
