Drivers Ed Portable Coming To The Nintendo DS

By Andrew Liszewski

Speaking of driving, it seems the days of drivers ed courses involving gory safety videos and folding chair simulators are long gone. Today’s teenagers will soon be able to prepare for the written portion of their driver’s license exam with the recently announced Drivers Ed Portable for the Nintendo DS. The game was developed by DreamCatcher Games and JoWooD Productions with the intention of providing a fun way for new drivers to study the material. And while I don’t have anything against edutainment, I just hope this title also manages to get across how serious the rules of the road really are. (Note to new drivers, you won’t ever have to deal with red shells in real life.)

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 should be available in the Fall of this year, presumably in all of the supported countries.

    Hi,

    According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Adminstration, Drivers under 25 are four times as likely as older drivers to die in an accident. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks
