"My license renewal deadline was approaching and I was headed out of town for a family visit across country with one course remaining for renewal. Thanks to C.A.R. and Online Ed, I was able to complete my last required course on the plane! I passed my exam and submitted all my courses to DRE from 30,000 feet. Thanks C.A.R., these 45 free hours are the best, both in content and accessibility!"
