Things You Should Know for Your Maryland MVA Permit Test
Many of the details in the Maryland Driver's Manual can seem irrelevant for becoming a safe and responsible driver - but most of them are important for your MVA knowledge test.
Questions on your permit test will mostly deal with safe driving techniques, signs and signals, and Maryland traffic laws. It is a good idea to learn when to use headlights and when to should be on low beams and when to use high beams. Understanding the new cell phone laws is also important.
Obviously, MVA wants to make sure new drivers understand how to stay away from accidents. You should expect several questions on how to safely share the roads with others. This includes sharing the road with trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. You must also know what to do if you have a skid, tire blowout or mechanical failure.
Accidents are basically caused by drivers. Often, drivers fail to slow down to a speed that is proper and prudent considering the existing conditions. Failure to recognize motorcycles and pedestrians at intersections is also a common cause of accidents. But more commonly, alcohol and drugs are the main reason drivers get into accidents. While all numbers in the manual aren't always that important, consequences of impaired driving can be. MVA will make sure you know how severe the penalties can be.
