Program information

This 36-hour program is designed for beginning drivers who wish to obtain a Maryland Class C Driver’s License. Students learn from professional, Motor Vehicle Administration-certified instructors who patiently and courteously coach the new driver. Schedules are flexible and include day and evening classes. Drivers are trained in late-model, specially equipped vehicles that are easy to maneuver in traffic and parking situations.

The Driver's Education Program will be presented by Linnel Driving School in collaboration with the college.
