After you pass your written exam and have obtained your Maryland learner's permit, you need to log a substantial number of supervised hours behind the wheel. Learners under 25 must drive at least 60 hours.

To become a good driver, you must learn to feel comfortable and confident. You make split-second decisions every minute on the road, which means not only you must pay close attention, but also you must know in advance what responses are available. That's why Friendly Driving Academy places such a strong emphasis on safe and defensive driving.
If you're 25, you must log only 14 more hours of driving time. But if you don't live with your parents, finding your supervisor can be tough. But Friendly Driving Academy is always just a phone call away.
