Taking the Course

How long is the course?

The state of California requires that Traffic Violator School courses take a minimum of 6 hours to complete. We break this down into 9 levels in our course.

You can access your course from your desktop, laptop, phone, and tablet, and you can log on and off whenever you want. There are no timers in the course, so move on to the next page once you’re done reading! It is truly self-paced.

What happens if I fail a level assessment?

There are 9 levels in the course. At the end of Levels 2-9 are level assessments consisting of 10 questions. The questions will be a mix of multiple-choice and true/false questions. You must score at least 70% or better (at least 7 out of 10 questions correct) in order to pass and go on to the next level.

If you don’t pass a level assessment, you can take it again (up to three times). If you don’t pass a level assessment on your third attempt, however, you’ve failed the course. Unfortunately, the state of California requires that in these situations you repurchase the course and start from the very beginning again.

In order to ensure that you pass your level assessments, you can always review the material in the levels and chapters you’ve already completed. We want to make sure you can pass your course!

 

What happens if I fail the final exam?

You’ll take the Final Exam at the very end of your TVS course. This exam consists of 25 questions, which will be a mix of multiple-choice and true/false questions. You must score at least 70% or better (at least 18 out of 25 questions correct) in order to pass and get your completion information filed with the court.

You have two chances to pass the Final Exam. After failing the Final Exam two times, the state requires that you repurchase and restart the course from the very beginning. Remember that you can always review the material in the course before taking the exam in order to ensure that you pass!

Why do I have to answer identity security questions?

The state of California requires that Aceable verify the identity of students taking our TVS course. In order to do this, we use a system that asks you identity verification questions based on the information in your Aceable Student Profile.

You’ll be asked these identity security questions at various points throughout the course. If you fail a question (which we doubt you will since these questions are all about you!), the state of California requires us to bring you back to the beginning of your current level. Unfortunately, this is a state requirement we have to follow.

Why do I have to restart my level if I miss a security question?

Unfortunately, this is a state requirement we have to follow. If you fail a question (which we doubt you will since these questions are all about you!), the state of California requires us to bring you back to the beginning of your current level.

How fast can I finish this course?

Our course is approved by CA DMV to contain enough content for an 8-hour course, but there are no timers in this course to allow you to finish at your own pace.

What is the progress log?

The Progress Log shows you when you started and completed a certain level and chapter.

Here’s an example of what the Progress Log looks like:

L = Level

C = Chapter

The points on the right are points that a student earned in a specific chapter. The points don’t count for or against you, and they don’t affect your level tests or final exam scores – they’re just for fun!

How do I take a practice test?

Practice tests are available for all Aceable Drivers Ed courses, not for Texas Defensive Driving or California Traffic School.

The practice tests consists of ten multiple choice questions. Students can take as many practice tests as they want at any point in the their course. The practice tests don’t count for or against you, and they don’t affect your level tests or final exam scores.

You can open up the menu and click on “Practice Tests” to take one.

How many levels or chapters do I have left?

To know how much you have left to go, check out the Table of Contents in the menu of your account.

The Table of Contents gives you an outline of your course and allows you to go back to levels, chapters, and pages you have previously completed so that you can review course material. 

Anything you’ve done will be in black or blue. Anything you haven’t yet done will be slightly lighter in color or more transparent.

When you go to the Table of Contents, you’ll notice some letters followed by numbers. These letters and numbers stand for certain levels, chapters, and pages.

L = Level, C = Chapter, P = Page

For example, if you see L1 C2 P3, you are looking at Level 1, Chapter 2, Page 3.

This is what the Table of Contents looks like:

When you click on a level, it will expand to show you the chapters in that level.

When you click on a chapter, it will expand to show you the pages in that chapter.

When you click on a page, you’ll be brought to that specific page in the course and you can review content. You can only go to pages that you have already completed. You are not allowed to jump ahead in the course.
