Take Driver Training in North Dakota

ND Take Driver Training

Your North Dakota instruction permit allows you to legally practice driving on ND roads while being supervised. If you are 16 years old or older, get in as much behind-the-wheel practice as possible before taking your road test. If you are younger than 16 years old, you must also take driver's training.

A) Take a Behind-the-Wheel Driver Training Course

If you are under 16 years old, you must complete driver training to obtain a driver education completion certificate, and ultimately be eligible to take the road test. Driver's training consists of 30 hours of classroom instruction and 6 hours behind-the-wheel training at school with the Department of Public Instruction. You can also take the a 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training with the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

B) Get Out of Class and On the Road

Begin practicing behind-the-wheel with your supervising driver. The more experience you get with varying road conditions (heavy traffic, not-so-perfect weather, etc.), the better prepared you will be to handle challenging situations when you are driving unsupervised. This is a must for those 14 to 15 years old, who are required to log 50 hours of practice driving in variable road conditions. Plus, the more you practice, the more likely you are to pass the road test the first time around.
