- Three-hour class, offered on Saturdays from 9 AM to 12 PM
- Available to all ages

What is the cost of the class? Are there any refunds?

In the event you become ill and must leave the class, A2B Driving School has two options either re-schedule your driving lesson for a different class date or you will be refunded.

Can I take the course voluntarily, without a referral letter from MVA?
Yes. If you take the course voluntarily, we will ask you to sign a waiver form which states that you do not have a referral letter from MVA.
What happens if I do not pass the exam?
At the end of the test, the driving instructor will go over the test as well review the ones you missed; however, you need at least an 80% or above. If you receive a failing score, you are required to wait at least 24 hours before retaking the exam. There is a $10.00 charge for anyone who needs to retake the exam.
What if I miss my Due Date?
If you miss your due date, please call MVA to find out your status; however, there is a high chance that your driver’s license probably has been suspended. If your license is suspended, A2B Driving School advise you not to drive and also to call the MVA in order to relinquish your license; furthermore, inquire the proper steps to take in order to reinstate your driving privilege.
Will points be removed from my driving record after I take the course?
Taking the Driver Improvement Program does not remove points from your license. The points will remain on your driving record for 2 years from the date of your violation.
What am I required to bring to the driving class or testing site?
When you come to take the class or take the exam, please bring your photo identification, your letter from the MVA, your completion certificate.
How will the MVA know that I completed the program?
A2B Driving School will electronically transmit the notice of completion to the MVA, which will be posted directly to you driving record within 24 hours after you pass the final exam.
If your driving privileges are currently suspended, we encourage you to call the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration Driver Improvement Division (410-787-7817) to verify that your suspension has been lifted and you are permitted to drive.
If the weather is bad, how do I know if you are still having class?
In the event the driving school is closed due to inclement weather, A2B Driving School will notify you that the class is canceled. We will advise you of alternate dates and times to take the class.
All cancellations are also posted on our website.
What if I am taking the program for a ticket received out of state?
If you received a ticket in a state other than Maryland, it is your responsibility to forward the completion certificate to that state in order to meet whatever requirements are ordered by the court.
How does Point System accumulation work in Maryland?
The MVA uses a Point System to record traffic violations on each person’s driving record. You can consult the Maryland Schedule of Fines and Points (PDF) to find the number of points assessed for each type of violation.
Depending on how many points you have accumulated in a 2-year period, the MVA will take the following actions:
- 3 to 4 points – You’ll receive a warning letter.
- 5 to 7 points – You’ll be required to complete the Driver Improvement Program.
- 8 to 11 points – Your driver’s license will be suspended for a period of time.
- 12 or more points – Your driver’s license will be permanently revoked.
New Drivers with a Provisional License: The MVA will require you to complete the Driver Improvement Program when you receive your first traffic violation, regardless of how many points you have accumulated. If you receive three traffic violations on your Provisional License, the MVA will require you to enroll in the Young Driver Improvement Program.
