Hands On Wheels greatest strength of any driver education program begins with the quality of the school's instructors. All our driving instructors are licensed by the State of Maryland and are subjected to federal background checks. All our employees are courteous, patient, professional, reliable and friendly.
You will have to get a learner's permit in order to drive, but you can start the classes without it. Everyone, regardless of age or experience, is required to get a learner's permit. If you're UNDER 25 you must hold your learner's permit for 9 months and get 60 hours of driving practice (in addition to the six hours included in driver's ed) before you can get a license. If you're OVER 25, you only have to hold your permit for 45 days and practice for 14 hours. Hands-On Wheels Driver Education Program is approved by the Maryland Department of Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA). The MVA program requires the students to take a minimum of 30 hours of classroom instruction and 6 hours of behind the wheel instruction. The course familiarized students with basic rules of the road and teaches Defensive driving strategies. The program is also designed to teach the physical and emotional aspects of driving and the legal and financial responsibilities of driving.
