So you've taken your first step towards becoming a new driver in Maryland? Congratulations!
As you probably already know, driving is a valuable skill, but can also be extremely dangerous. Therefore, to help new teen drivers develop safe driving habits during their first few years behind the wheel, the State of Maryland has implemented a graduated driver license program for Iowa drivers who are under the age of 18.
We’ve summarized a few things you’ll need to know as you begin the process of becoming a licensed driver in Maryland.
After you receive your instruction permit (which is valid for 2 years), you may begin to practice driving, however, there are some restrictions:
Violations of these restrictions may result in your instruction permit being suspended.
In order to be eligible to apply for a provisional license in Maryland, you must first meet the following prerequisites:
When you're ready, head back down to the local Maryland MVA office. Be sure to take your instruction permit and all the documents you took when you went to get your instruction permit. You will need to pass a road test before being issued a provisional drivers license.
With a provisional license, some restrictions still apply until you turn 18:
State law requires that you have at least a certain amount of auto insurance/liability coverage on any vehicle you drive. The minimum amount of liability coverage required in Maryland is as follows:
Driving without auto insurance liability coverage is a crime. If you are found to be driving while uninsured, you risk losing your license and paying a hefty fine.
Please know that Maryland has a Zero Tolerance Law regarding alcohol abuse. If you're under 21, and have a blood alcohol content of .02, you will face a heavy fine plus suspension of your driver's license (even though the a regular DUI limit is .08).
You probably have heard a lot already about the dangers of driving while under the influence of alcohol, so we'll get right to the consequences.
The FIRST time you get busted for DUI in Maryland, you will face the following penalties:
Further DUI violations will result in even more severe penalties, including extended jail time, fines, and the revocation of your driver's license.
Maryland currently prohibits teen-aged drivers from using cell phones or text-messaging devices while driving with an instruction permit or a provisional license.
