We will begin your training in the classroom, and later switch over to hands-on driving instruction. Many things are covered in such a compact schedule; so it's important to attend every class. If illness or emergencies require you to miss a session, ask your instructor about making up the time. As per MVA policy, you must attend the first class.


Prepare for the next step

On the final day of your classroom instruction, we make it easy to take the next step, so you'll be able to sign up for behind-the-wheel time.


Remember to obtain a Maryland driver's license. All first-time drivers, regardless of age, must complete an MVA-certified driver's education course. Friendly Driving Academy's program qualifies, and you can pay by cash, check, credit card, or money order.
