What happens if I fail an identity security question in the course?

Unfortunately, it’s a state requirement that we can’t get around. On the bright side, our levels are super short and you’ll make it back to where you were in no time.

Are You Associated With Florida Virtual School?

Aceable is in no way associated with Florida Virtual School. Aceable’s course can help students complete learner license requirements in as little as four hours.

With Florida Virtual School, students have to take a semester-long class before they can get their learner license.
