Do I have to take drivers ed or driver training to get a Maryland driver license? Maryland
Driver Training and the MD Drivers LicenseDrivers ed is required for all first-time driver license applicants, regardless of age. After obtaining your Type 1 permit you'll be required to complete a drivers education class. This course must be MVA-approved for the completion certificate to be recognized.
In addition, you must also fulfill the following requirements to become eligible for a Maryland provisional license:
- Hold the permit for a minimum of nine months.
- Must complete 60 hours of supervised driving and document using the MVA Practice and Skills Log. If you’re younger than 18, the Log must be signed by a parent or guardian. If 18 or older, it must be signed by a licensed mentor.
NOTE: To obtain a permit, you must pass a vision screening and a written test. To prepare for the written test you'll need to study the state's drivers handbook and take at least one practice test.
Driving Test RequirementsYou must make a driving test appointment by calling (888) 212-4709. On the day of test be sure to arrive with:
- Your MD permit.
- A working vehicle with the registration card.
- A licensed driver.
- Proof of completing a driver education class.
- The completed Practice and Skills Log.
