Driver Ed Services

  • Driver Ed

    • 30 hours of online classroom
    • 6 hours behind-the-wheel driving lessons

    You can start the online class at 15 years old. The minimum age for students to start behind-the-wheel lessons is 15 years and 9 months. You must obtain a learner's permit before starting behind-the-wheel lessons. To get a driver's license, Maryland requires that every student under the age of 25 complete a minimum of 60 hours of supervised driving with a parent or a supervising driver who is at least 21 years of age and has held a driver's license for three years. Compass Driving Academy will provide six hours of behind-the-wheel training with a certified driving instructor. The last hour administered by the driving school is tested and the students must score 80% or better. If a student does not pass, they must pay for a retest.

    Our in-car lesson schedule is busier during the spring and summer months. You can schedule a lesson online by logging into your account. We do not guarantee your completion by a certain date. After the successful completion of six hours of behind-the-wheel lessons, the student's information will be electronically submitted to the MVA. Please allow two business days for the MVA to receive and process the information before scheduling the MVA road test.

    Puedes comenzar la clase en línea a los 15 años. La edad mínima para que los estudiantes comiencen las lecciones detrás del volante es de 15 años y 9 meses. Debe obtener un permiso de aprendizaje antes de comenzar las lecciones detrás del volante. Para obtener una licencia de conducir, Maryland requiere que todos los estudiantes menores de 25 años completen un mínimo de 60 horas de conducción supervisada con un padre o un conductor supervisor que tenga al menos 21 años de edad y haya tenido una licencia de conducir durante tres años. Compass Driving Academy proporcionará seis horas de capacitación detrás del volante con un instructor de manejo certificado. La última hora administrada por la escuela de manejo se evalúa y los estudiantes deben obtener una puntuación del 80% o más. Si un estudiante no aprueba, debe pagar por una nueva prueba.

    Nuestro horario de lecciones en el automóvil está más ocupado durante los meses de primavera y verano. Puede programar una lección en línea iniciando sesión en su cuenta. No garantizamos su finalización en una fecha determinada. Después de completar con éxito seis horas de lecciones detrás del volante, la información del estudiante se enviará electrónicamente a la MVA. Espere dos días hábiles para que la MVA reciba y procese la información antes de programar la prueba práctica de la MVA.
