Planning to get your B.C. driver’s licence, or recently got your B.C. driver’s licence?

Street Sense is a hazard perception training application for new drivers or those new to B.C. to improve their skills at identifying and avoiding hazards on the road. This initiative is a joint collaboration between ICBC, the Province of British Columbia, TELUS and Project Whitecard. It is funded through the Province’s Strategic Investment Fund.

How it works
Street Sense is free to download and use, and works on mobile phones, tablets, PC computers, virtual reality goggles (Oculus Quest), or your web browser.

Street Sense immerses you in different driving scenarios that mimic real driving conditions in British Columbia. Through the app, you can practice scanning – and avoiding – hazards in a safe and controlled environment, so you can develop real-world skills to avoid hazards before they happen.

After each scenario, the app also provides helpful advice and tips on ways to improve your hazard perception skills.

Not only are you strengthening your hazard perception skills the more you use Street Sense but, the more points you get, the more you can access in-app rewards such as upgrades to your Street Sense vehicle and achievement badges.

Alternative way to play

There was a review that said this was unrealistic due to the fact you are able to use more limbs in a real car. This leads me to suggest the following way to play: use your right big toe for the pedals and left foot for shoulder checks. Make sure you are actively looking over your shoulder when you are shoulder checking though. This will allow the user to focus on steering with their hands and provide a more realistic experience.
