Do you offer Commercial Driver's License (CDL) Programs?

No, we do not. We offer the standard Driver's Education Program, the 3-hour Drug and Alcohol Program, and the Driver Improvement Program.

Should I take the Drug and Alcohol program or the full
Driver Education program?

If you have a Learner's Permit, or have never held a driver's license, you should take the full Driver's Education program. This includes 30 hours of classroom instruction and 6 hours of driving practice. This class is required in order to obtain a Provisional License.

The 3-hour Drug and Alcohol program is for students who
have an international license or a license from another country. After completing this course, you must pass both a written test and a driving test at the Maryland state MVA.

Do you offer adult driving lessons?

Yes. A 2 Hour lesson costs $100, cash or money order. Please call our office at 301-441-8100 to arrange appointments.

Will my lessons use a stickshift or an automatic transmission?

Because of very low demand for manual lessons, all our cars are automatic.

Do you take students to their driving tests?

Sorry, we are no longer able to offer this service.

How long do you keep student records on file?

We keep all completed student records for three years. Incomplete student records will be held for three years.
