Montgomery College Offers Driver Education Classes This Summer
College’s MVA Licensed Program Offered in Gaithersburg

Registration is now underway for Montgomery College’s summer driver education courses, with sessions starting May 20, June 19, July 5 and 24, and August 10. The classes prepare students to take the Maryland driver’s license examination. All classes are taught at Montgomery College’s Business Training Center, 12 S. Summit Avenue, in Gaithersburg.

Taught on Saturdays or on weekdays, the driver education courses consist of one orientation session, 10 three-hour classroom sessions, and three two-hour in-car sessions, for a total of 14 sessions. The classes are licensed and certified by the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration, as are all instructors.

Prospective students should have a learner’s permit as issued by MVA; however a birth certificate is accepted. Students under 18 are required to be accompanied by parent(s) at the orientation/first class session. This session is designed to help parents and students become acquainted with Montgomery College’s driving school policy, overview of Maryland’s Graduated Licensing System program, and to learn Behind the Wheel schedules with expectations.

The cost is $395 for Maryland residents. Out-of-state residents pay an additional $160 fee.

Disability support services should be requested three weeks in advance. For registration and general information about any of the driver safety courses, call 301-279-5188 or visit
