The MVA knowledge test that you must pass to get a non-commercial Class C learner's permit is based on information in the Maryland Driver's Manual. The manual includes basic knowledge on driver safety for new drivers, including: Marylands traffic laws; highway signs that warn and direct traffic; safe driving practices. The graphics, full-color design, and brief paragraphs are easy to read and packed with driver safety facts.
Please study the Maryland Driver's Manual and practice with the Maryland Online Driver Test Tutorial to prepare for the knowledge test before coming in to the MVA to apply for your learner's permit. The manual can be downloaded, or you can listen to an audio version, or pick up a copy at any MVA branch office.
The knowledge test is administered on a computer in English or Spanish, as well as Korean, French, Vietnamese and Traditional Chinese. If you require an oral test, they are conducted by appointment only and you must schedule the appointment at an MVA branch office.
