The Division of Driver Examination and Li-
censing is responsible for conducting examina-
tions of all new drivers and renewing motor vehi-
cle operators' licenses.

Examinations include testing of the applicant's
visual acuity, knowledge of motor vehicle laws,
and the ability to operate a motor vehicle safely.

Maryland licenses are now classified according
to the type of vehicle the driver will operate and
are designated A, B, C, D, and E. Any class li-
cense will authorize the licensee to operate vehi-
cles in that particular class, except E, providing

the licensee meets the age requirements of the
several classes. The five classes are Class A—Re-
quired to operate tractor-trailers; Class B—Re-
quired to operate trucks over 20,000 pounds
gross weight; Class C—Required to operate bus-
es; Class D—Required to operate automobiles,
station wagons, and trucks up to 20,000 pounds
gross weight; and Class E—Required to operate

Examinations are conducted at the Glen Bumie
Headquarters and at the Regional Offices in
Baltimore City, Chesapeake City, College Park,
Cumberland, Forestville, Easton, Gaithersburg,
Hagerstown, Rockville, Salisbury, and Waldorf.
In addition, examining and licensing teams con-
duct driver examinations at fourteen other loca-
tions throughout the State. Three mobile van test-
ing units also are used to conduct Class A, B,
and C tests at large trucking, bus, or utility facili-
ties, including fire departments and schools.
These vans are equipped to enable examiners to
conduct vision screening and written law tests,
and to collect and account for applicable fees.

The Division also ensures that each school bus
is inspected for safety three times a year.
