The Maryland driving school will electronically submit verification of completion to the MVA.

Public driver’s education relies upon teachers or coaches from the local high school that has been certified as driving instructors by the Department of Motor Vehicles. The classroom portions of these classes take place in high school. Fees for public driver’s education may be lower than those of a private driver’s ed class.

Currently, the MVA has only approved certain specific certificates issued by the Delaware Board of Education, that physically state that the certificate has been approved by the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration. No other out-of-state certificates are currently accepted.

Important message regarding Winter 2021 Driver Education classes:

Students, parents, and guardians, please read the following: The College is choosing to suspend all aspects of the Driver Education program this Winter term due to the following reasons.

  • The rising cases of the COVID-19 virus across the State.
  • The fact that Linn and Benton Counties have been placed on the extreme risk list on the State’s Risk and Protection Framework.
  • The backlog of students in the Driver Education program from Summer and Fall terms that still need to complete the driving portion of the program.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Know that it is our goal to get the Driver Education program back up and open for students and families just as soon as it is safely possible to do so.
