ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico college has purchased new simulation technology to enhance its 15-month Commercial Driving License program.

The Roswell Daily Record reports (https://bit.ly/2ewLxI0 ) that the driving simulation at Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell will give students the experience of driving an 18-wheeler in different conditions and circumstances, such as inclement weather or congested traffic. It will be used by people interested in entering the trucking industry.

The technology is contained inside a goose-neck trailer that can be moved to different locations.

ENMU-R’s commercial driving program was started in spring 2014. Instructor and trucking veteran Pat Olguin says students are already using the simulator but won’t begin formally training with the new technology until January.
