Changes to Maryland Drivers License to Benefit Bicycles


Changes to Maryland Drivers License to Benefit Bicycles

From Bike Maryland website

Thanks to the efforts of a diverse coalition of regional groups that worked closely with the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration and State Highway Administration, a revision to the Maryland State Driver’s Manual that addresses sharing the road with bicycles is being issued this Fall (2011). This Manual will serve as the basis for
improved driver’s education and new driver’s licensing examination questions. It is hoped that this can serve as a model for other jurisdictions as a means of introducing bicycle safety education into the automobile drivers’ mindset early in their training.

Details at

Section VI – Sharing the Road (New 2011 Maryland Driver’s Manual Page 29-30)

Headings are:
Expect Bicyclists on the Road
Following a Bicyclist
Pass with Care – Give Bikes at Least 3 Feet
Use Caution at Intersections, Bridges, and Driveways
