Learn to Drive,Inc. is a professional driving school licensed by the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration to conduct
classes in drivers education.
It was started in 1994 by a former Police
Sergeant who had been a driving instructor for police recruits. In retirement he wanted to try and make
the roads safer by teaching an informative class to young people steering them toward the proper methods and choices they
make while driving. He felt that a comfortable, clean, well equipped classroom would stimulate learning. He also wanted the
new drivers to drive cars that they would not mind being seen in, and that were similar to what was being used by their family.
We believe that Learn to Drive has accomplished that goal. Our classroom uses table seating with separate chairs to make it
more comfortable. The classroom is equipped with a 54" television, and an LCD projector with a surround sound sytem
for watching the required videos and power point presentations. All videos shown are those mandated by the MVA. There is a
textbook available for each students use.
Maryland Law requires that all new drivers regardless
of age, that have never been licensed, attend an approved drivers education course. The course consists of 30 hours of classroom
and six hours of behind the wheel time. A person may attend drivers education anytime after their 15th birthday, but must
wait until they are 15 and 9 months to obtain a learners permit. Once they obtain a permit, they must log 60 hours of driving
time with a licensed adult, over 21 years old, and that has been licensed for at least 3 years.
hope you will give us the opportunity to be your educational provider.
