    What is Parent Taught Drivers Ed?

    Parent Taught Drivers Ed simply means teens take the classroom phase of drivers ed with Aceable and complete the in-car training phase with a parent.

    Who can take Parent Taught Drivers Ed?

    Students ages 14-17 are eligible to take Parent Taught Drivers Ed with an approved parent driving instructor. In order to be a parent driving instructor, you must be the student’s parent or guardian and hold a valid driver license. Parents are ineligible if their driving privileges have been revoked in the last three years or if they have more than six points on their driving record.

    Is this legit?

    Yep. We’re approved by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, 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.
