Start Your FREE 2019 ND DOT Practice Test Now

Whether you’re dodging snow drifts in the winter or traveling the great plains in the summer, there’s simply no way to traverse the great state of North Dakota without a driver’s license. Your first step is going to be a DOT written exam for your learner’s permit or driver’s license, and luckily we have everything you need to pass that test the first time. With DOT practice tests for car drivers, motorcycle enthusiasts or commercial vehicles there are sample questions to suit your needs. Want to drive a bus in Bismarck? We got you covered. Want to fire up a flatbed in Fargo? That’s something we can help you do. We also feature step-by-step instructions to make sure there are no surprises on the day you go to the DOT.

To become one of the rough riders in North Dakota who gets paid to drive crude oil or machine parts to places that need them, you need a North Dakota commercial driver’s license (CDL). The tests aren’t expensive, just $5 for the knowledge exam and another $5 for the road test. The Class A exam has 70 questions, 50 general knowledge and 20 more specific. There are 50 questions for B and C exams as well. Then if you want any endorsements like passenger and school busses, doubles/triples, tank vehicles, hazardous materials, or air brake restriction removal, there is additional testing and skills tests involved. How do you prepare? With our cheat sheets and practice tests you’ll be ready to pass the first time. The questions mimic the exact exams and our CDL resources will have you ready to get in and out with a license.

"I used this website for three days and only looked at the manual twice. I did all of the practice tests that they had, and after only studying for three days I passed my test. I only got one wrong on the test and some of the questions on here were the exact same. Overall, the test was pretty easy and using this site helped a lot."
