Getting Your License

Aceable’s main game is to help young drivers get that first license. Our drivers ed courses make it as quick and easy as possible. You’re most likely looking for a regular driver license, but there are plenty of other license types depending on the weight of the vehicle(s) you want to drive, and whether it’s for commercial purposes or not. Be sure to know what kind of license you’re applying for before starting the license process. When you’re applying for your driver license, you’ll also have the opportunity to simultaneously sign up to be an organ donor. It’s a personal choice, but Aceable encourages you to join the state registry so that you may save a life one day. Be sure to think about this opportunity when you go in to get your license.

Buying a Car

Learning to drive is a magical journey on its own, but you’re probably going to need a car too. Getting a vehicle for the first time is 80% awesome and 20% super intimidating. Study up on car-buying and ownership so that you can go into the purchase feeling confident and excited. It’s mostly about thinking through your decisions carefully. Does a new car or a used car make more sense for you needs and your budget? How do you know if you’re getting a reasonable deal with your financing? Remember, you’re also going to need auto insurance to satisfy state law.

Before Every Drive

Start building a couple of good habits now, and it might save your life one day. Aceable has created videos to show you the importance of checking the area around your vehicle and buckling up before every drive. Wearing your seatbelt is important for your own safety, and doing a walk-around is a great way to spot hazards in your surroundings and check for any maintenance problems with your car (flat tires, leaking fluids, etc.). Also, you’ll obviously wanna keep your car keys and driver license or permit with you any time you’re gearing up for a cruise.
