Despite the name "Driving School", I don't think it's inherently a feature limited to newcomers - it could (in theory) also be used as a means of providing difficult parking or navigation challenges, which many argue the "main game" doesn't offer enough of.

But I don't really feel like it's a super high priority feature, either.

Navigation challenges, wasn't that a big part of Scania Truck Simulator?

The communnity has been asking for ages, it would refresh the whole economy and may have the chance of them to touch up some trucks.

And like I said before, on ATS's 5th anniversary they released the 4x2's, 8x4's and 8x6's, which was something people asked for a long time.

I honestly couldn't care less about rigids tho, I prefer arctics... But it's something that would be nice to have.
What is arctics?

A cargo system overhaul would be the only feature I'd consider "big". Anything else - other than maybe the introduction of DX12 - will be a letdown.

I don't think of driving school as anything other than a marketing tool they can offer to partners for use at truck shows. Something along the lines of mini-games GIANTS designed specifically for John Deere, Krone, and many others. It has no practical use for players - even beginners. Everything a driving school module would offer is already - more or less - covered by the base game.

We already have arcticulated trucks in-game... It's the regular Tractor-Trailer or like the one you posted above.

O wait, you mean regular semi trucks.
The 1 I posted, is Rigid + trailer. Well, small trailer in that case.

Maybe they’re “arctic” because they’re all built at the North Pole :-)

I don't know why people are this hyped about the 10th anniversary of ETS 2. What if it turn out just a WOT event with 2 skin combo & 2 accessories(1 for the 10th anniversary of ETS2 & 1 for the 25th anniversary of SCS Software)? :lol:
Though I will personally like to see either rigid or seasons or a complete overhaul of the cargo system, I won't be disappointed if there is nothing major apart from the WOT event. ;)
