Attention: This course is for Maryland Residents  Only!

The DRIVER EDUCATION COURSE is the Maryland required course that all beginning drivers must complete. All new drivers who want to obtain a Driver's License in the State of Maryland need this course.

This course consists of two parts:
Classroom
There are 30 hours of classroom instruction. Classroom topics include basic driving techniques, defensive driving, rules of the road, alcohol and driving, various driving environments. To pass the classroom part of the driver education course, the student must attend all 30 hours of class; participate in class activities and, score a minimum of 80 on each test/final exam.
Behind the Wheel
There are 6 hours of behind the wheel instruction. In-car skills include basic maneuvers (including parallel parking), defensive driving techniques, and road driving in a variety of environments. To pass the behind the wheel part of Driver's Education the student needs to complete all six hours and pass the performance criteria for each lesson. Once the student has completed both the classroom and the behind the wheel parts, Easy Method Driving School will process and transmit all information to the MVA (Maryland students only)
Q: How old do I have to be to take driver education in Maryland?

15 years old.

Q: Do I need to have a learner's permit to take driver education in Maryland?

As of October 1, 2008, MVA Regulations allow students who do not yet possess a Learner's Permit to complete the 30 hours of in-class instruction, but require students to have a Maryland Learner's Permit to participate in the 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training.

Q: How old should my student be to start the State Driver Education Program, and what is the best way to progress through the training?

The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration and EMDS recommend that students start Driver Education at age 15, progress through the 30 hours of in-class instruction to prepare for the MVA Learner's Permit Exam which a student can take at 15 years and 9 months; and then complete the behind-the-wheel portion of the training after the Learner's Permit is obtained. It is best to stretch the training over a period of time to give each student the opportunity to absorb both the in-class and behind-the-wheel material.

Q: What if I miss a class?

Students are permitted under MVA guidelines to miss 12 hours of class without having to re take the entire course. All missed classes must be made up in a reasonable length of time.

Q: How old do I have to be to get a learner's permit in Maryland?

You have to be 15 years and 9 months old. You do not have to have taken Driver Education to get a learner's permit. You must study the Maryland Driver Handbook and take a test at a full service MVA location.

Q: What is the Graduated Licensing Program?

The program requires novice drivers to gain more driving experience with a supervising driver and gradually move up through the licensing process until full license status is achieved. Under the graduated licensing system, non-commercial license applicants, who have never held a driver's license, must progress through three licensing levels:

Level 1
Learner's permit (15 years and 9 months)
Level 2
Provisional license (After Driver Education)
Level 3
Full license
