Program Overview

Drug and Alcohol are serious problems for drivers in the US. According to a recent statistics, 45, 000 persons die annually in car accidents. Moreover, every two minutes, there is a crash caused by drunk drivers. It has been proven that drugs, even those prescribed by physicians, can impair drivers’ judgment and reasoning. Knowing how vital it is to have safe driving environment, it is our utmost conviction at Starlinx Driving School to provide quality driver education on the dangers of drug and alcohol on drivers’ ability.

Unfortunately, drug and alcohol use is more rampant among drivers than you may realize. Even though drivers may know it is illegal to drive under the influence, too many people assume the chances of getting caught are low.

Taking a drug and alcohol education course addresses the facts behind driving under the influence. Maryland has stringent laws and does not tolerate this irresponsible behavior. Topics discussed in class include:

  • Discussion of Drugs and Alcohol on Judgement
  • The Effect of These Substances on Driving Skills
  • Basic Drug and Alcohol Laws
  • Positive Driving Habits to Develop
  • The Impact of Prescription Drugs on Driving Ability
  • Different Methods of Impairment

Smart Driving Academy offers the 3-Hour Alcohol & Drug Education Program (ADEP). This 3-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.
