Aceable is best-known for their online driver's education classes, including courses in defensive driving, student driver's ed, employee training, and corporate compliance.[3][6] High school students who finish the driver's ed course with the Aceable app receive a certification of completion.[2] The certificate is then taken to the student's local DMV wherein they undergo a driving test and receive a learner's permit.[3][4] The app comes with parental controls that allows parents to monitor the student's progress.[11] Aceable's driving apps are available on the web as well as Android and iOS platforms.[3][6][9]
