Driving School 2016 is a free game available for Android smartphones and tablets in which you can maneuver different types of vehicles such as trucks, buses, cars. Ovidiu Pop, the creator behind this simulator series, develops many other similar games involving driving and racing. This release is one of the most successful because it has more than 50 million downloads and installs through the Google Play Store. Numbers like these are not easy to obtain due to so many options available on the market. One of the main reasons and get this game for your device is to learn the basics of driving etiquette, acceleration, braking, changing direction, shifting gears, traffic laws, behavior in traffic, etc. I'm not saying that you'll be ready to take your driver's license in the real world just by playing a video game, but you'll learn some essential aspects of driving. The gameplay comes with more than 50 challenging levels spanned across ten beautiful maps, where players can experience the joy of driving through multiple locations and circumstances.
Drive on highways, through mountains roads, cities, deserts, and country roads. All we have to do is to pass them all with flying colors to obtain our virtual driver's license. Plus, this game is not only about regular cars. You can complete the test and win the paperwork for truck and bus driving as well. For those who get bored while doing missions, this simulator brings a Free Ride Mode where everybody can roam around the map with their favorite vehicle. When it comes to controls, you can move the car around using the buttons and the virtual wheel displayed on the screen. Some players out there are more comfortable and familiar with steering the vehicle by tilting the device left and right. This feature is available, and you can turn it on or off inside the options. If you want to play using a gamepad, you can connect it to your smartphone or tablet.
This option makes things easier, in my opinion, but it's up to each individual player to decide what works best. By default, the gearbox changes the gears by itself. However, the ability to drive using a manual gearbox with clutch and stick shift is present without a doubt. Concerning the visuals, each vehicle included in the game comes with detailed interiors, smooth and realistic car handling, and proper engine sounds. In case you want to enjoy the driving actions with your best friends, Driving School 2016 lets you play a multiplayer mode. Take advantage of the Achievement component and Online Leaderboards to establish yourself as a top driver in this great simulator. Besides, the realistic car damage system makes sure players do their best to drive as clean and responsible as possible to avoid crashing.
