What do I need before I can get my permit?

Before applying for a learner’s permit, you should study the Maryland Driver’s Manual, which covers the following topics:

• Driving test requirements
• Licensing requirements
• Basic driving skills

The Maryland Driver’s Manual is available at any Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) or online at the Department of Transportation MVA website.
