Drug & Alcohol Education Program


Triumph Life Saves offers a 3-Hour Alcohol & Drug Education Program (ADEP). This class is required by the Maryland MVA for drivers who have a valid foreign driver’s license and want to apply for a Maryland driver’s license. Once you have completed the program, you will be awarded the Alcohol and Drug Education Certificate valid for 12 months from the date of completion.

Individuals who hold a foreign driver’s license are required to successfully complete a vision screening, knowledge test, driving skills test, and the MVA-approved three-hour alcohol and drug education program in order to convert their license to a Maryland license. If the initial driver’s license is not in English, it must be accompanied by an International License, or a translation into English by an MVA-approved translator.


Schedule: Every Tuesday
