Learner's Permit Forms

Due to the impact of COVID-19, BCPS office buildings are closed. Learner's Permit Forms cannot be completed for homeschooled students at this time. 

Teens wishing to obtain a learner's permit before their 16th birthday are required to submit a form, #DL-300 Verification of Identity and/or School Attendance, to the Motor Vehicle Administration. Kimberly O'Connor is the contact person who will sign this form for all eligible homeschooled students registered in Baltimore County, including those students who are enrolled under umbrellas. Once a student has reached his/her 16th birthday, this form is not required by the MVA. 
A Note from Mrs. O'Connor:
Obtaining a learner's permit is an exciting milestone in a teen's life. Please know that I make every effort to sign and return learner's permit forms in a timely manner. However, my professional responsibilities often occur outside of my office in Towson.  Therefore, I do not advise families to visit the office. Please read the following procedures for obtaining my signature on the required form to ensure a smooth process. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me (koconnor2@bcps.org) or call the office (443-809-2896 Option 2). Best wishes to all of our new student drivers!
