Out of Country License Holders

3-Hour Alcohol and Drug Education Class
Individuals who hold an out-of-Country license are required to successfully complete a vision screening, knowledge test, driving skills test, and an MVA approved three-hour alcohol and drug education program in order to convert their license to a Maryland license.

Silver Start Driving School offers the 3-Hour Alcohol & Drug Education Program in person only. This three-hour class is required by the Maryland MVA for drivers who have a valid driver’s license from another country and want to apply for a Maryland driver’s license. If the out-of-country license is not in English, it must be accompanied by an International License, or a translation into English by an MVA approved translator.

Once you have completed the program, you will be awarded the Alcohol and Drug Education Certificate valid for 12 months from the date of completion.
