Maryland Defensive Driving

More information to help you make the right choice.

Collecting points against your driver's license, breaking traffic laws, and court orders may all be valid reasons to take a Maryland defensive driving course.

The Maryland MVA may require you to take a defensive driving course for the following reasons:

  • To improve your driving habits and road attitudes.
  • To help you avoid a suspended driver's license.
  • To ensure you are equipped with the knowledge to avoid future traffic offenses and car accidents.

Also, you may be able to receive a lowered car insurance premium by voluntarily completing the course.

In this article you will learn about the Maryland defensive driving program approved by the Maryland MVA and how this course can benefit your specific situation.

Obligatory Defensive Driving in Maryland

It may be mandatory for you to complete a Maryland defensive driving course if you:

  • Received an order from the court handling your case.
  • Received an order from the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH).
  • Have piled up over 5 points on your driver's license.
  • Committed a traffic offense or probation before judgment when you had a provisional license.

Following the order to complete a defensive driving course, in under 6 weeks, you will receive information pertaining to:

  • The specifics of your violation.
  • A deadline to complete your course.
  • Other documents and fees to be submitted.
  • Course Length

    The defensive driving program usually takes about 4-8 hours. Your class location and cost will vary depending on the course provider. Talk to the specific traffic school you are considering before enrolling.

    Finishing the Course

    Upon completion of the course, your traffic school will award you with a certification of completion, and your results will be updated with the Maryland MVA.

    In some cases, there may be additional fees and documents based on your past record and the specifics of your case. These should be submitted to the MD MVA when applicable.

    Suspension of your driver's license may occur if:

    • You have too many points on your driving record.
    • You commit severe traffic offenses.
    • You fail your defensive driving program.

    Taking a Maryland Defensive Driving Course Voluntarily

    Voluntarily completing a defensive driving course provides more options. You can choose to complete the course online, in a physical class, or with an at-home DVD.

    Finishing the course using any one of those methods can get you a discount on your car insurance if you are eligible. Too see if you qualify and to get more details, talk with your auto insurance agent.

    This traffic school class will likely take you 4-8 hours as it covers topics such as:

    • Good driving technique.
    • How to prevent accidents.
    • Road laws in Maryland.
    • Alcohol/drug violations.
    • How to become a responsible driver.
    • Cooperating with others on the road.

    Before you finish your course, you will likely need to take a final exam. Upon passing this exam, you will receive your defensive driving certificate.

    For more details about qualifying for a car insurance discount, please contact your insurance provider.

    If you come to find out you are not able to receive a car insurance discount, you will still benefit from the course by lowering the risk of:

    • Future traffic violations.
    • Accumulating driving record points.
    • Being part of a car accident.
