Getting Started

Is there anything I need before getting started?

Nope! You do not need to have a permit or a junior license before getting started with our program.

You can take this course if you want to get an unrestricted senior license before you turn 18 or as a study aide for the written test.

Are there any additional fees?

As far as what you pay to Aceable, there are no extra fees. What’s included in the price?

  • 30 hours of online classroom drivers ed
  • Unlimited free practice tests
  • 1 emailed certificate of completion

To get a senior license though, you need to complete a 6-hour behind-the-wheel training course in addition to our 30-hour drivers ed course. The cost of the behind-the-wheel training course will depend on the driving school you go to. It’ll range anywhere between $200 to $600.

Who can take this course?

You are between 15 and 18 years old and you are applying to get a senior license before you turn 18. You can also take this course for purely educational purposes – the more you know, right?

Can I take Pennsylvania Drivers Ed before I have a permit?

Yes, you technically can. You cannot get your permit until you are 16, but you can get started with our course even if you are are under 16.

You don’t need to take a drivers ed course to get your permit or your junior license, but you can use our course to learn and be a more knowledgeable driver. If you wanted to get your senior license, you’ll need to take this course.

Either way, reading through the Driver Handbook can be really boring and sometimes hard to understand. Our drivers ed course breaks everything down into small bite-sized pieces of information and we also keep things entertaining so that you can really remember what you’ve learned.

Is Aceable’s Pennsylvania Drivers Ed program licensed by the state of Pennsylvania?

Yes, we are the licensed online curriculum provider for Blue Bell Driving. You don’t have to go to Blue Bell Driving to do our course. Anyone in the state of Pennsylvania can take our course and use the certificate we email to get a senior license.

How do I sign up from the website?

Step 1. Head to our checkout page.

Step 2. Select the course you plan to purchase.

NOTE: Drivers Ed is for those trying to get their driver license. Defensive Driving or Traffic School is for those who already have a driver license and are simply trying to dismiss or mask a ticket OR want an insurance discount.

Step 3. Select your payment option. 

You can choose between credit card and PayPal. If you have a debit card, select “credit card” and it will work just fine.

Step 4. Enter your payment information.

For credit/debit cards, you’ll be asked to enter your card information. For PayPal, a pop-up window will open and ask you to sign into PayPal.

Step 5a. Enter the first name and email address for the person taking the course.

We refer to people taking our course as “students”. It doesn’t matter how old you are – you’re a “student” taking our course.

Step 5b. (Optional) Click on “Wait, I’m a parent” if you want to create a parent account.

At this point, you can enter your parent email address. Learn more about parent accounts.

Step 6. Click “Complete Purchase”.

Doing this will create an account for any emails you put down.

Step 7. Set your password.

If you only put down a student email, you will be asked to put down a password for the student account you signed up for.

If you put both a student and parent email, we will ask you to put down a password for the PARENT account. The STUDENT will receive an email at the STUDENT’S email address with a link to set up their password.

Step 4. Select the state that you are trying to get a license in.

We offer official drivers ed courses in these states: California, Florida, Illinois, Ohio, and Texas.

Surprisingly, most states in the US do not allow online drivers ed. If you’d like to change that, contact your state legislators!

In the meantime, if we don’t offer drivers ed in your state, we offer free unofficial study guides (aka “permit test prep”)!

App Select Course

Step 5. Select your course. If you selected “Texas”, we offer three courses, so make sure to swipe right to see all three choices.

App Select Course

Step 6. Select “I will be taking it” to create a student account. If you select “My child will be taking it”, this creates a parent account and access to parent tools. Parent accounts are always free, so if you want the free trial, you’ll want to set up a student account.

App Parent or Student

Step 7. This step is optional and only shows up if you press “I will be taking it” in Step 6! We always want our parents to be involved in their students’ drivers ed process. After all, your parents are the one taking you to the DMV or DPS to apply for your permit and driver license. If you want to let your parents know that you’re ready to start drivers ed, fill out the form with your parent’s information. Press “Skip” in the upper right corner if you don’t want to do this step.

If you selected “My child will be taking it” in Step 6, move forward to Step 8.

App Ask For Parent Info

Step 8. Tap on “Buy Now”. Once you do that, you’ll sign in to your iTunes or Google Play account. It will automatically charge you and allow you to move on into the course! The screenshot below is for student accounts. Parent accounts will see a different screen, but there is still a “Buy Now” button for you to tap.

If you’re on an iOS device, you can purchase with the credit or debit card linked to your iTunes account. You can also use an iTunes gift card (the amount on the gift card must be equal to or greater than the cost of the course, including sales tax).

If you’re on an Android device, you can purchase with the credit or debit card linked to your Google Play Store account. You can also use a Google Play gift card (the amount on the gift card must be equal to or greater than the cost of the course, including sales tax).

If you’re having trouble making a purchase, contact us here. We’re happy to help you out and get you started on a course!

How do I set up my student password?

When signing up with BOTH a parent and student email, we ask for the parent to set up a password after your purchase. We send an email to the student email that you gave us. The email contains instructions for setting up a student password.

Below is an example of the email your student received from Aceable. Search for the words “Set Their Password”.

NOTE: Before clicking on the link, make sure nobody is currently signed into Aceable. Parent accounts are automatically signed into Aceable after purchase. If that’s the case, please sign out of the parent account (how do I do that?).

After clicking that link, you will be asked to put in a password. It needs to be at least 6 characters long. It can be all letters or all numbers or a combination.

Once the password has been set, you can click “Continue” to be signed into Aceable. You will be asked to fill out your Student Profile. After doing so, you can begin working on the course.

Still having trouble? Here are some extra steps you can take!

I tried those steps, but I'm still having trouble setting up the student password.

Problem 1. It keeps sending me to a page that says “Welcome!” and my parent’s name.

This means that you are currently signed into your parent’s account. You’ll need to sign out of the parent account (how do I do that?).

After signing out, go back to your email and click on the link to set up your password again. Now, it should work!

Problem 2. It keeps saying the link is expired.

This happens when you request a password reset, but click on an old password setup or reset link. Yes, password reset requests affect your password setup link. Since your password setup link is unusable, you need to go to the password reset request email you received from us and click the link in there. Be sure to only open the most recent password reset request email you received from Aceable.
