West Visayas State University (WVSU) in Pototan exists to produce globally competitive lifelong learners. In the pursuit of these, faculty members are encouraged to be creative and resourceful in the development of instructional materials. The inadequacy of instructional device in automotive technology prompted the development of a low-cost dual control driving trainer by using salvaged parts from unserviceable vehicles. The researchers employed the developmental method in this study. Automotive technology students and professors and engineers pilot tested it for further improvement. Additionally, the respondents composed of mechanical engineers, professional drivers, automotive technology professors, and students evaluated the driving trainer device. The result showed that the trainer is less expensive and very useful as an instructional facility.
