**Please note that pre-existing free-to-use installations will continue to provide 3D views
This view gives an overhead view of the scene. Vehicle and trailers are transparent, showing the positions and angles of all wheels.
This view clearly shows how the steering angle affects the trailer direction of travel.
These provide a realistic view of the reversing operation as seen from the driving position. You can easily switch between left and right mirrors at any time while reversing is in progress.
If the auto mirror feature is enabled, the simulator will automatically try to select the most useful mirror view at any given point in the manoeuvre.
There is also a multi-view option that allows both reversing mirrors and front window to be viewed at the same time.
This view provides a good overview of the scene layout. It is particularly useful to watch autopilot demostrations of how to perform each manoeuvre.
It is possible to select from a range of towing vehicles and trailers, each of which have different turning characteristics.
A range of scenes are available which offer different manoeuvres, including the B+E reversing test.
In autopilot driving mode, steering is controlled by the simulator. You can set the vehicles moving in reverse and the simulator will demonstrate how to complete whichever manoeuvre is selected.
In guidance mode, the simulator calculates the appropriate steering to be applied at any moment and displays this as 'steer left/steer right' instructions on a visual indicator. It's then up to you to try to follow the instructions using the steering control.
This feature records your route as you carry out a reversing manoeuvre.
Recording begins automatically when you start reversing and stops when the manoeuvre is successfully completed. If you stop or drive forwards, the recording is paused automatically.
When the recording is complete you can see an analysis of how well you did, including a score based on factors such as how closely you managed to follow the suggested approach route and how well you controlled your steering.
The analysis page also displays an interactive diagram of your route overlaid on the suggested route.
You can view any of your previous recordings to allow you to see your progress. A High Scores table is also maintained online so you can see how your scores compare to others!
The built-in tutorial uses a series of animated diagrams to explain the principles behind reversing a trailer.
You can add mirror-shaped surrounds to the mirror views to make them look more like real mirrors.

The mirror views in <<reversemytrailer show the scene as it would appear in extended, convex towing mirrors. The angles and position of the mirrors are preset to appropriate values but these can be adjusted as required.

You can now use a racing wheel or game controller to control the vehicles in <<reversemytrailer .
As well as steering, if your controller has pedals you can use these to speed up and slow down. Buttons on your controller can be set to do other things like selecting different views or moving the vehicles back to the start position.
