Above: The FleetSafe NZ Simulator, the only one of its kind in New Zealand was bought to Symons Transport depot to carry out driver training. The simulator has the ability to simulate rain, snow and wind wind, within rural and urban surroundings, on sealed and unsealed road - all in the one session.
