Who has to take the written test?
All first-time drivers in Maryland are required to go through the ?Rookie Driver? graduated licensing program, regardless of their age. In order to obtain a license you must first pass the written test and receive a learner's permit, which you must hold for 9 months and complete a state-approved driver's education course before you are eligible to take a road test and receive a provisional license. The provisional license is automatically upgraded to a full license after it has been held for 18 months. The minimum age to take the written test for a learner's permit is 15 years and 9 months, and anyone under 18 will need parental consent.
