Can I take the course voluntarily, without a referral letter from MVA or a Judge?
|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?
|If you do not attain a score of 80% or above, you will be required to return after a 24-hour waiting period and retake the test. There is a $10.00 fee for any individual who needs to retake the test.|
What if I miss my Due Date?
|If you miss your due date, your license has probably been suspended. Under no circumstances should you be driving. Please contact the MVA to relinquish your license, and to inquire what steps to take 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.|
How will the MVA know that I completed the program?
|Within 24 hours after you pass the final exam, Leap Driving Academy will electronically transmit the notice of completion to the MVA and it will be posted directly to your driving record.
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 school is closed due to inclement weather, Leap Driving Academy will notify you that the class is cancelled. We will advise you of alternate dates and time.
All cancellations are also posted on the home page of our web site.
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, enquire from the state you got the ticket if you could do the program in Maryland and 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?
|Depending on how many points you have accumulated in a 2-year period, the MVA will take the following actions:
New Drivers with a Provisional License:
If you have a provisional driver’s license, the MVA will require you to complete the Driver Improvement Program when you receive your first traffic violation, regardless of how many points the violation carries.
If you receive three traffic violations on your Provisional License and you are under 18 years old, the MVA will require you to complete the Young Driver Improvement Program.
