How Aceable Will Help You Pass the California Driving Exam

Hey friend! 

If you’re reading this, that means you’re thinking about learning to drive! How exciting!

Aceable is here to make getting your drivers license easy (and even fun)! And despite the fact that our course is taught by a self-deprecating, hilarious, and roguishly handsome robot (he wrote that), we are super serious about teaching our students to become safe, confident, “Aceable” drivers.  

You probably have a few questions about everything from taking drivers ed to passing your driving test. Let’s walk through it step by step!

Step 1: Complete Drivers Ed

The first thing you’ll need to do in your journey to getting a license is to sign up for a drivers education course. You need to pick a course that is approved by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), and you need to look at reviews to make sure the course is legit. 

You can choose a course that meets in a classroom after school or on the weekends. If you go this route, you’ll need to make sure you have a ride, and the classes don’t conflict with your schedule.

Or if that sounds like a hassle, you could go with an online course. Aceable is completely online, so you get to choose when and where you learn. With Aceable, all you need is your phone or computer, and you are good to go. In fact, you can start our course right now if you like!

The State requires drivers ed to be 30 hours long, regardless of whether you’re taking it in a classroom or online. Aceable’s course promises to make those 30 hours as entertaining as possible while still preparing you for the driving test and beyond!

How do we make drivers ed entertaining? The learning experts at Aceable go to great lengths to design engaging and interactive lessons that are based on the latest learning science. We have a team of creators and engineers who are constantly coming up with new features and educational activities that make learning stick. 

Here’s what you’ll learn from Aceable drivers ed: 

  • How to share the road with others

  • How to be a giver, not a taker, when it comes to the right of way

  • How to understand what all those traffic signs and signals are trying to tell you

  • What the speed limit is, and why speeding is bad

  • How to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape

  • What to do if your car breaks down or you have a collision

  • Why you should never ever use your phone while driving

  • Why you should never ever drink or use drugs while driving

  • How to turn, park, and how different intersections work

  • There’s more stuff you’ll learn, but I don’t want to lose you, so I’m going to stop here.

Our ultimate goal at Aceable: Give our students the knowledge they need to ace the driving test and be lifelong safe drivers. That’s what we’re all about.

Step 2: Ace Your Permit Test

Once you’ve finished your drivers ed course, you can head to the DMV and take your permit test. If you’re an Aceable student, you are going to feel very prepared for this test. Our app has hundreds of practice test questions that you can take as many times as you like. We also include lots of pop-up questions throughout the course to make sure you’re learning as you go. The DMV also provides their own practice tests. Pretty nice of them!

Step 3: Learn to Drive

Now, this is one part you can’t do on our app. You have to drive an actual car to learn to drive! But everything you’ve learned in the course will prepare you for the happy day when you slide into the driver’s seat for the first time. If you feel a little nervous, don’t worry; that’s totally normal! The more driving practice you do, the more confident you’ll feel. 

Step 4: Ace Your Driving Test

Okay! Finally, after 30 hours of drivers ed and 50+ hours of driving practice, you are eligible to take the driving test and get your license (assuming you are 16 and meet all the other criteria).  This is the day you get to show that DMV person who gives you the test what an awesome (Aceable) driver you are. Really, they are probably going to thank you for getting your license and making the roads just a little bit better with your safe driving. 

Here’s what you’ll need to be able to do to ace your driving test:

  • Safely operate a vehicle

  • Use safe driving habits

  • Apply your knowledge of traffic laws

That’s all there is to it! You just have to show the state of California your safe driving skills (which you have been learning this whole time from Aceable and from your driving practice), and you will nail that test!
