Basic Program: 30 hours classroom + 6 hours in-car

This course meets the Maryland State mandated minimum educational requirements for the student to obtain their provisional license. Our instructor will offer additional defensive driving techniques throughout the standardized curriculum. Each student will then follow-up their classroom instruction with six (6) hours of behind-the-wheel training.

Advanced Program: 30 hours classroom + 8 hours in-car

While every other driving school in the region teaches the required State mandated minimums of thirty (30) hours of classroom instruction followed by six (6) hours of on-the-road training, we feel there is still much more to be learned. That is why our advanced curriculum consists of thirty (30) hours of classroom instruction followed by eight (8) hours of practical behind-the-wheel training. During these two (2) additional hours of behind-the-wheel instruction, students will be provided more opportunity to practice their driving skills as well learn additional defensive driving techniques.

Premium Program: 30 hours classroom +10 hours in-car

We are now pleased to offer our Premium TEEN SAFETY DRIVING COURSE to all of our new teen drivers. In addition to receiving our Basic Driver Education Course, each student will also receive four (4) additional hours of behind the wheel instruction. By providing each student with these four (4) additional hours of instruction, we hope to teach more Defensive Driving techniques to the new teen driver. By providing more practical knowledge to our students, our goal is make them safer drivers on today’s highways. Our emphasis and commitment throughout this course is to have each student develop safe driving habits in all types of roadway conditions, including residential, highway and city traffic.
