Taking the Course

How long is the course?

It is 6-hour minimum course with 11 levels. While there are timers in the course, they’re set at a pace much faster than the speed that most people read. You won’t even notice them! The course also never expires, so you don’t have to worry about any deadlines— Aceable works around your schedule.

Does the program expire?

While the course doesn’t expire, the state of Illinois does require that you complete the course within 30 days of beginning it. The course is only six hours, though, so we’re sure you’ll be able to finish it within this time.

Why do I have to answer identity security questions?

The state of Illinois requires that Aceable verify the identity of students taking the course. We do this by asking you a series of identity security questions based on information in your Aceable Student Profile. This system is made to ensure that the person who signed up for the course is actually the one taking it.

You’ll be asked these identity security questions at various points throughout the course.

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

Unfortunately, it’s a state requirement that we can’t get around. If you fail a question (which we doubt you will since these questions are all about you!), we must return you to the beginning of the level and you must start over from there. On the bright side, our levels are super short and you’ll make it back to where you were in no time.

What happens if I fail a level assessment?

There are 11 levels in the course. At the end of each level is a ten-question multiple choice test. You’ll need to score at least 75% or better in order to pass and go on to the next level.

If you fail a level assessment, you can take it again. There is no limit on how many times you can take a level assessment and you don’t have to pay again to take a level assessment more than once.

What happens if I fail the final exam?

At the very end of the course is a 20-question final exam. You’ll must score at least 75% or better in order to pass the course and receive a Certificate of Completion.

You have two chances to pass the final exam. According to the state of Illinois, you fail the course if you are unable to pass the final exam within two tries. Unfortunately, Illinois requires that in these situations you repurchase the course and start from the very beginning again.

How do I get my certificate from Aceable?

When you complete your six-hour course (11 levels), Aceable will send your completion information to the Illinois Secretary of State (ILSOS).  Within 24-72 hours, the ILSOS will email you a Certificate of Completion.* You’ll need to print out a copy of this certificate to present at the Driver Services Facility when you get your license.

*Since your certificate will be emailed to you, it’s important that you provide Aceable with an accurate email address that you have access to easily.

If there’s a mistake on your Certificate of Completion, please contact us at here. We’ll work quickly with the ILSOS to correct your certificate.

If you are an Aceable student who is 21 years old or older, you don’t have to wait for a Certificate of Completion. You can go straight to the Driver Services Facility whenever you’re ready and take the vision, written, and driving tests there.

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.
