How to Pass Your Permit Test in MD

Automobile License

To get an automobile license in Maryland, the applicants have to undergo training under The Rookie Driver/Graduated Driver Licensing system. This concerns all non-commercial driver’s license applicants regardless of their age. The new drivers will have to gain their learner’s instructional permit first which then enables them to “graduate” to a driver’s license.

New applicants must arrive at a Maryland DMV branch office with the following documentation (only original documents or copies certified by the issuing agency are accepted):

  • identity documents (US passport or birth certificate);
  • SSN (social security number);
  • two residency documents.

Individuals who’ve never obtained a Class driver’s license before have to get a Type 1 learner’s instructional permit. The latter is considered active for 2 years.

To obtain a learner’s permit, you will have to:

  • be 15 years and 9 months old. If you’re younger than 18, you need a legal guardian or a parent to approve your application;
  • complete a Learner’s Permit School Attendance Certification (DL-300), if younger than 16;
  • undergo a driver knowledge test and vision screening.

For all applicants holding a learner’s permit, it’s mandatory to practice no less than 60 hours of driving and dutifully maintain a Practice and Skills Log.

Individuals with a Type 1 learner’s instructional permit and aged 16 can qualify for a Type 2 learner’s instructional permit. It’s active for six months and needs to be held for no less than fourteen days before an applicant can take an MD driver license permit test.

Holders of Type 2 learner’s permit can then qualify for a provisional license and upon obtaining it for a driver’s license (the final step in their application process). To qualify for a Maryland driver’s license, applicants need to:

  • be 18 years old;
  • obtain a valid provisional license for 18 months;
  • have no records of moving violations.

Once the applicant meets the above requirements, the MVA upgrades an applicant to a driver’s license.

MD Motorcycle License

To obtain a motorcycle license, a person needs to be 18 years old and pass an official course of 30 hours of class education and six hours of driving practice. All applicants under 18 are obliged to gain a learner’s permit before qualifying for a driver’s license.

The driver license permit test encompasses:

  • vision screening;
  • ability to recognize traffic signs;
  • a written permit test;
  • MD road driving test.

If the applicant fails any part of the test, he/she can give it another try the next day if an appointment is available.

Commercial Driver’s License

The state of Maryland offers 2 types of commercial driver licenses: Class A and Class B. To get a CDL, an applicant must pass a medical examination as well as knowledge tests and endorsements. Each test is marked as “passed” if the person obtains an 80% passing score. For all applicants transporting hazardous materials, a lawful admission into the US is required. provides a wealth of training materials and MD DMV permit test questions to help you get yourself ready for your driving test. We also have a mobile app available for download from Google Play and App Store.

Do You Need More Cylinders for Your Engine to Last Longer?

Now and then, you can stumble across a discussion on auto enthusiast forums about whether the number of cylinders can influence engine life. Specifically, there is the suggestion that more cylinders make the engine last longer. It is based on the assumption that the larger number of cylinders leads to each of them firing less often and therefore serving longer. Some people even made it a routine to purchase used cars, calculating the effective working life of the engines in dependence to their cylinders (in the format "so many miles per each cylinder"). Is there any truth to this and how the number of cylinders corresponds with the engine’s durability?
