Aceable launched its mobile app to teach teens to drive in California this week.
The Austin-based startup reported as of Tuesday teens between the ages of 15 and 17 and a half years old can now fulfill their 25 hour classroom requirement on Aceable’s mobile app. The Aceable app is available for iOS and Android smartphones.
Aceable first launched its mobile phone app to teach teens to drive in Texas in 2014. The company created all of the curriculum for the lessons from scratch. They wanted to provide fresh, funny content like videos and memes to appeal to a teen audience. The app also allows parents to track their child’s progress.
“The rapid adoption of our mobile drivers ed apps and web courses illustrate teens are hungry for innovation, in an outdated industry,” Blake Garrett, CEO of Aceable, said in a news release. “With California being the birthplace of tech innovation it was a no-brainer to make it our next target market.”
Earlier this month, Aceable closed on $4.7 million in venture capital to help fuel its expansion nationwide. Its goal is to be in all U.S. states that allow online drivers ed by the end of 2016. The company has more than 100,000 users in Texas and Florida.
