Aceable Launches Ohio Online Drivers Ed Course

Austin-based tech ed startup Aceable Inc. debuted its eighth driver safety course on Wednesday with the launch of Ohio Drivers Ed for ages 15 to 18.

Like its predecessors, the latest course by Aceable allows users to complete Drivers Ed online or via mobile app with the goal of making required learning fun, easy and fast-paced. Currently, Ohio Drivers Ed by Aceable is one of nine online providers approved by the state Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

With the launch of this course, Ohio becomes the fifth state to offer Aceable Drivers Ed, following Texas, Florida, California and Illinois. In addition to Drivers Ed, Aceable also provides Online Defensive Driving in Texas.

Founded in 2012, Aceable launched its first Drivers Ed course in Texas, before making its way to other states. With nearly 100,000 users, the company is actively seeking government approval to launch Online Drivers Ed courses in states that allow it.

In 2015, Aceable raised $4.7 million in seed funding, which was led by Silverton Partners with participation from Floodgate Ventures, NextGen Angels and Capitol Factory. Aceable investors say they see the startup’s potential to move beyond the realm of driver safety and into new verticals of required education.
