New Driver Education Class starts Jan. 10

You can learn to drive at HCC! The next session of Driver Education classes starts Mon., Jan. 10. Classes are held Mondays and Wednesdays, from 6 to 9 p.m. each night.

The course includes 30 hours of classroom training, six hours of behind-the-wheel driving, and is required by the state of Maryland for all drivers obtaining their first drivers license.

  • Thirty hours of classroom instruction will include discussion of space management, basic maneuvering, reducing risks, and personal factors influencing operator performance and collision avoidance.
  • Six hours of individual student driving will be scheduled and begin after the fourth classroom session.

Each class will include a three-hour orientation and will acquaint students with the school's requirements and components of the Maryland's Graduated Driver Licensing Law. Attendance at the orientation is REQUIRED for students and parents/mentors.

The mandatory student/parent/mentor orientation for this class will be held Mon., Jan. 10, from 6 to 9 p.m.

Students are required to bring their learner's permit to the orientation class. The Learner's Permit is a State of Maryland requirement to complete the entire driver education course.  Students without learner's permits will not be allowed to continue past the orientation class and will be rescheduled into a later class.
