Maryland's Graduated Licensing System
The Rookie Driver program applies to all applicants, regardless of age, who have never held a license in Maryland or any other state or country. The program requires new drivers to complete a driver education course and gain experience with a supervising driver before driving on their own. It also encourages good driving behavior by setting certain restrictions and by imposing strict sanctions during each step of the licensing process.
In the Rookie Driver graduated licensing system, new Maryland drivers progress through three levels of licensing:
|1. A Learner's Permit||2. A Provisional License||3. A Full Driver's License|
|Getting Your Leaner’s Instructional Permit||Getting your Provisional License||Getting your Full Maryland Driver’s License|
