Introduction: High-quality training of tractor drivers is possible only with the correct development of professional skills. The skills necessary for a tractor driver to reliably operate tractor equipment can be trained with simulators at the initial stage of training. The use of simulators makes it possible to automate the actions the tractor driver takes when driving the vehicle, and avoid the trainee’s exposure to risks. Material and Methods: The article
presents the classification of simulators used for training tractor drivers, by their models and information the tractor driver acquires in the process of driving tractor equipment. The existing information models of simulators in a generalized form can be divided into two groups: the first, which involves only reproduction of visual information, without imitation of vestibular information, and the second, which combines both visual and vestibular information. The analysis of information models of existing simulators is carried out, their advantages and disadvantages are reflected. Results: For the presented classification of the information model of simulators, two systematizing features are proposed, namely, the viewing angle of the presented visual information and the presence of imitation of vestibular information. Results and Discussions: The research carried out can be useful for the further development of science in this area, as well as for the choice of simulators for the educational
