Frequently Asked Questions

Am I required to take Driver's Ed?

Yes – in Maryland, the law requires everyone to complete an MVA-certified Driver’s Education course in order to obtain a new driver’s license. This rule applies to all Maryland residents, regardless of age.

What happens if I miss a day of class, or if I can't attend a day?

No problem! You can arrange to make up the day that you missed during a later class. All students must attend the first day of class.

How much does the class cost?

The base price for our New Drivers 36 hour GLS program is $350 for both weekday and weekend classes. There is an additional $45 fee for our Extra Hour Behind the Wheel Instruction. If you require an MVA Road Test Escort, there is a fee as well (call ahead for specials).

How do I register and pay for the class?

First, you can download our application form and fill it out to register. You can bring the form with you in person before starting your driving class. For payment, you may bring the payment with you on the first day of class. Admiral Driving School in Silver Spring accepts cash, checks, and credit cards.

Do I need a learner's permit to take the Driver's Ed class?

You actually are not required to have a learner’s permit to take our class. Many students at our Driving School in Silver Spring start our class as early as the age of fifteen. Many students have found that taking our driving education classes first helps them pass the MVA learner’s permit test later when they apply for a permit. (You can apply for a learner’s permit at the age of 15 and 9 months). Students can take advantage of the classroom portion of our course without a learner’s permit and then return for on-the-road training once they’ve been issued a learner’s permit by the state of Maryland.
