Our safety car, or OSCAR, is an interactive road safety simulator which offers simulated experiences covering:

  • distractions
  • tyre safety
  • drink driving
  • drug driving
  • vulnerable road users
  • the school run

The technology in OSCAR displays a video on the windscreen to show you how devastating road accidents can be.

Don't worry, though, it’s perfectly safe! If you have an interest in driving, road safety or are a learner driver, OSCAR is for you.
