Defensive driving usually sucks but Aceable gave it a unique spin that makes it quick and simple. The stories that were shown were powerful and it really opened up your perspective to little things you do when you drive, such as texting. Normally, people don't take away much from a DD course, but those stories of people who got into horrible accidents really left a strong impact on me. The course definitely forces you to rethink how you drive and how to use the rules to help you.

This is by far the best defensive driving course ever! Convenient and not boring! Excellent customer service! Nicole assisted me with my concern; not only Nicole resolved my concern, but she took the extra steps. It's the extras that really count! You guys are the best!

Jonah Ballesteros

Defensive driving courses are never fun but Aceable actually made it a much more pleasant experience. I really enjoyed the animation and the videos. Really impressed on the importance they put on how dangerous it is to speed, to text and to drink while driving. Thank you for making a fun course.
