Driver Education

Successfully completing a certified Driver Education Program course that includes 30 hours of classroom learning and six (6) hours of behind-the-wheel training is a requirement for all new Maryland drivers, regardless of age. In Maryland, the driver education program is provided by private driving schools that are licensed and certified to deliver this program.
