It uses the technology behind the latest arcade games to put real-life driving situations onto a computer screen in 3D and show how drivers react to them.
For 20 minutes an office chair becomes a driving seat for a trip along motorways or urban and rural roads. The test assesses if the driver has reacted correctly to potential hazards and also how other drivers on the road have responded.
A tap on the computer keyboard spacebar or click on the mouse at the right moment will earn points.
Charles Davis, RoSPA head of driver and fleet solutions, said: 'This is the first system of its type for the fleet industry. Previous packages have been basic hazard awareness tests.
'Our 3D Sense Ability programme shows whether drivers understand how to react to scenarios they encounter everyday, and also if they are aware of problems created by other motorists. It's about spotting bad driving.'
The programme will be available under license on CD and online and has been developed for RoSPA by Nottingham-based AIMS Solutions. It can focus on particular problems, which may have been identified by fleet managers, such as aggression, alertness, stress and anticipation.
