Abstract – The Brazilian Legislation determines the accomplishment of five classes in a Simulator of Vehicular
Direction of compulsory form in the formation of the future conductors of the country. The theme is based
pedagogically on the learning theories of Piaget and Vygotsky and is in line with the structure of the European
Matrix DGE. The data from this study demonstrate a 27% increase in the approval rate of students trained in
driving simulator in relation to untrained students in a Brazilian Driver Training Center. It also shows an increase
of 18.5% in passing examinations in the first two attempts. Although several studies have shown positive results
on the validity of the simulator in training of drivers and their theoretical and pedagogical foundations are clear
and the legislation is incisively established, the reflections about these fundamentals are still recent in Brazil and
they need more attention to reach the expected objectives .
