    How Does California Teen Online Driver Education Work?

    Your family should have drivers ed that’s quick, easy and flexible. Let us help you through the process from sign-up to driver license.

    Step 1 | Purchase Aceable

    Buy our DMV approved online driver education course for students ages 15.5 and up. If you want to try it out first, we offer the first few chapters free! Aceable’s course has pictures, videos, memes, voiceovers, text, and pop-up questions – we like to mix it up and keep it interesting.

    Step 2 | Take the Course

    Our California drivers ed course is 30 hours of entertaining content. It’s all self-paced so you can start and stop as you like. Plus, it never expires. We’ll mail you a Certificate of Completion of Driver Education for free once you’re done with the course. Join the thousands of Aceable California drivers who love our course.

    Step 3 | Prep For the Test

    Study for the DMV permit test with unlimited practice tests in-app. It's important that you prepare for the written exam before heading to the DMV. You’ll need to get at least 38 out of 46 questions correct, and you have three chances to pass the test. If you fail, you must wait seven days before taking the test again.

    Step 4 | Ace Your California Permit Test

    Head to the DMV to ace your written test and get your permit! Make an appointment first, because the California DMV doesn’t take walk-ins! You’ll also need to provide a fingerprint and signature, pass a vision exam, and take a picture. With your California learner permit in hand, you’re ready to start driving school.

    Step 5 | Start Behind-the-Wheel Driving Instruction

    Take your first two-hour lesson with a professional instructor at a traffic school, who will sign your permit. You can’t legally drive until you have your first behind-the-wheel lesson with a professional instructor. After your first two-hour lesson with a professional instructor, you can start on the 50 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction (10 of which must be done at night) with a parent, guardian, spouse, or adult who is 25 years old or older and has a valid California driver license. You’ll need to complete two more 2-hour lessons with a professional instructor (that’s six hours total of professional instruction) before you can get your license.

    Step 6 | Get Your California Drivers License

    Within 6-12 months of getting your permit, after completing driving school, and when you’re at least 16 years old, head to the DMV to take the driving test and get your license! If you fail your driving test, you must wait two weeks before you can take it again. You have three chances to pass. When you pass, the DMV will issue you an interim license that’s valid for 90 days. Your new photo driver license will arrive in the mail. Until then, always have your interim license with you when you drive. In the meantime, you can’t transport passengers who are under the age of 20, and you can’t drive between 11pm and 5am. After you turn 18, these restrictions don’t apply.


    Who can take California Drivers Ed?

    Students ages 15 1/2 and older are eligible to take drivers ed in California. If you’re 17 1/2 and older, you are not required to take drivers ed, but we recommend it because you’ll still have to take the written test to get a license. Aceable is a great way to practice for the test and learn how to be a safe, responsible driver.

    Is this legit?

    Yep. We’re approved by the California Department of Motor Vehicles, and last year alone, more than 25,000 teens got their driver licenses with Aceable. But don’t listen to us. Go check out what the Aceable Fam is saying on Instagram and Twitter.

    What are the system requirements?

    You can take the course on any device, including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, laptop or desktop. You’ll also need an internet connection (either WiFi or cellular data). Once you start the course, you can switch to any device with ease. Every time you log in, all your progress will automatically be saved!

    Do you offer behind the wheel instruction?

    While Aceable offers the online classroom phase of California Drivers Ed, you must take the in-car training phase at a local driving school. To find accredited schools in your area, you can search using Google or Yelp or contact the California DMV. Additionally, you can always contact our friendly customer support team for further assistance. We’re eager to help every step of the way as you work toward your license.

    How do I log my practice driving hours?

    After your first two hours of in-car training with a professional instructor, you’re eligible to drive with a licensed adult over age 25. California requires that you complete 50 hours of driving practice, but you don’t have to keep an official log. Instead, parents will simply sign the back of their teen’s permit, verifying they have completed all 50 hours.

    What’s included in the price?

    • Complete DMV-approved course, containing 30 hours of engaging content written for teens
    • Unlimited practice tests — endless study guides to ensure your success!
    • Certificate of Completion to bring to the DMV when getting your permit
    • Audio voiceover if you prefer listening to reading
    • Parent Tools to track student progress, see practice questions missed and understand the material covered at each level of the course
    • Driving Manager to help parents and students log in-car training hours

    Are there any hidden Aceable fees?

    Nope, it’s just a one-time fee. Plus, you can start the course for free and purchase when you’re ready. Not satisfied? We’ll give your money back. The only “extra fee” is if you want first-class shipping to get your certificate even faster.

    Are there any hidden fees payable to the California DMV?

    Yes, you’ll have to pay a $33 application fee when you get your learner permit at the DMV. When you go back to take your driving test, you won’t have to pay anything.

    Can i try it before purchasing?

    Absolutely. We offer a few chapters for free, so you can try out the course and see if it’s right for you. After that, you do have to pay, but we promise it will so be worth it! The cost of drivers ed varies widely and so does the quality. Aceable offers you more unique features than any other company — all at the lowest price.
