Thank you for choosing Beltway Driving Academy for your driver education course. Our goal is to teach new students how to become safe responsible drivers. Doing so, the cooperation of students and parents is extremely important during the “Behind-the-Wheel” phase of your Driver Education program. The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration 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 3 years.
Beltway Driving Academy will provide 6 hours of In-car Behind-the-Wheel training with a certified driving instructor that is committed to making the driving experience for our students the best it can be. Please read over the following information about our Behind-the-Wheel training sessions. Parents should also review other informational handouts given to the students on the first day of class.
Our Behind-the-Wheel schedule is busier during the spring and summer months. If you plan to participate in the program during the spring or summer months, please allow up to 90 days to complete the Behind-the-Wheel portion of the Driver’s Education Program. Therefore, if you would like to schedule a lesson during the months of June, July or August, please do so at least three (3) weeks in advance of the desired date. To give students time to process and practice the items covered in the previous lessons, only one driving lesson can be schedule per week. The Behind-the-Wheel lessons can be scheduled online, in person or via phone/email.
