Do you need to renew your license? What about getting a permit or license for the first time? Maryland has a set of new standards for 2020. It might not be the same as Virginia or DC, so that’s why you need to pay attention to the changes.
The License Progression
The license progression is simple. A first-timer who is 15 years and 9 or more months old can apply for their learners permit. Then a learners permit holder is at least 16 years old can apply for their provisional license. Provisional license holders who are older than 18 can then apply for their full adult license.
Applying for a Provisional License
Then there is the process for applying for a provisional license. You’ve got hold a learning permit first. Then you must complete a driver education program. After that, you need to fill out a driver skills log. Maintaining a conviction-free record is also essential. Once you have finished that step, you can schedule your road test. Passing the test means that you will receive your provisional Maryland license through the mail.
Getting a Full License
The first thing you have to do is reach age 18. After you’re 18, you have to hold your provisional license for at least 18 months to prove that you are a careful and considerate driver. Part of this means that you must stay conviction-free while you are still on your provisional license. If you violate this rule, then your 18-month term resets and you have to start all over again. Eventually, your provisional license will convert to a full license automatically. There is no need to pass a road test, knowledge test, or vision test. These steps are still useful when you go to renew your license, but that isn’t something you need to worry about just yet.
