Taking the Course

How long is the course?

The state of Nevada requires you to take a 30-hour drivers ed course if you are under 18 years old and have never held a driver license. You can access your course from your desktop, laptop, phone, and tablet, and you can log on and off whenever you want. 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.

Throughout the course, there are 17 level assessments that are 10 questions each. You just need to score at least 70% to pass! You can retake them over and over again until you pass.

At the very end of the course, you will take the final exam which you need to pass with at least 70%. You can retake it over and over again until you pass. After passing, we will email you your Certificate of Completion within 1-3 business days.

Does the program expire?

No. You can take as long as you need to finish up.

What happens if I fail a level assessment?

There are 17 level assessments. You’ll get to your first one in Level 2. Each level assessment is 10 questions long. You just need to score at least 70% in order to pass.
If you fail, you can retake the level assessment over and over again until you pass. You can retake the level assessment immediately.

What happens if I fail the final assessment?

The final assessment is 40 questions long and you need to score at least 70% to pass. There is no time limit, so don’t fret – you’ll make it through to the end!

If you fail, you can just retake the final exam over and over again until you pass. You do not have to retake the course!

Why do I have to answer identity security questions?

The state of Nevada 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. If you miss a question (which we doubt you will, since these questions are all about you!), no worries. You have a total of three attempts before you are locked out.

What do I do if I’m locked out of the course?

If you are locked out due to failing 3 security questions, just contact Aceable and we’ll get you unlocked after some additional verification. We’ll work with you to make sure you can continue your course ASAP.

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?

There are two ways of seeing your progress and how much is left to go:

  1. Progress Bar on the Home Screen
  2. Table of Contents

Progress Bar

Below is a screenshot of one of our courses. This is what the home screen looks like. Right below the Aceable logo, you will see a progress bar. In this example, this student is 30% complete with the Texas Parent Taught Drivers Ed course. For a more detailed look, read on to learn about how you can see this in the Table of Contents.

Table of Contents

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.
