The MVA knowledge test that you must pass to get a non-commercial Class C learner's permit is based on information in the Maryland Driver's Manual. The manual includes basic knowledge on driver safety for new drivers, including: Marylands traffic laws; highway signs that warn and direct traffic; safe driving practices. The graphics, full-color design, and brief paragraphs are easy to read and packed with driver safety facts.
Please study the Maryland Driver's Manual and practice with the Maryland Online Driver Test Tutorial to prepare for the knowledge test before coming in to the MVA to apply for your learner's permit. The manual can be downloaded or pick up a copy at any MVA branch office (subject to availability).
The knowledge test is administered on a computer in English or Spanish, as well as Korean, French, Vietnamese, Nepali, Traditional Chinese, and more. If you require an oral test, they are conducted by appointment only and you must schedule the appointment at an MVA branch office. For more information on all languages and options available, visit the Interpreter / Translation Providers page.
