Aceable is now offering virtual driving lessons with a 360 degree virtual reality experience.

Based in Texas, the company became fed up with the increase in young-driver related deaths. Many of these incidents were related to texting and driving so Aceable decided to use technology to combat this by including virtual driving lessons in every course. According to Aceable CEO and founder Blake Garrett, "VR and 360 video might seem like a gimmick at first, but the minute a student or parent experiences the system, the value becomes apparent."

As an extension of their traditional driving courses, Aceable's virtual driving lessons can be accessed anywhere with the use of an app and Google Cardboard or any other inexpensive VR viewer. From focusing on the latest tech innovations, this company has found a way to relate to young drivers and do some social good.
