North Dakota Trucking Schools

Many quality companies offer truck driving careers in North Dakota. This makes it simple for you to become gainfully employed immediately following obtaining your CDL.

Getting a Class A CDL in North Dakota requires extra training and testing. This is because driving a commercial vehicle is much different than driving a passenger vehicle. However, when you get your Class A, you are eligible to drive any other type of vehicle that has more than three wheels on it.

Requirements For Getting Your North Dakota CDL License

You must pass a written exam as well as a road test to get your license. The only exception to this is if you transferring your license from another state to North Dakota. Drivers must also be at least 18 years of age and provide proof that they are free of any medical problems that may impair their driving. Drivers may not drive across state lines until they are 21.

How Long Is The License Good For

You must renew your license on your birthday every four years. You will have to pay a $15 renewal fee and pass an eye exam to successfully renew. You cannot renew online because of the eye exam requirement. You must also pass the hazmat test if you want to transport hazardous materials. This will include a background check. Furthermore, you must indicate your driving status. Your choices are:

    • Non-Excepted Interstate
    • Excepted Interstate
    • Non-Excepted Intrastate
    • Excepted Intrastate

Other Information About Your North Dakota CDL

You will have your license suspended for 60 days if you are convicted of a DUI. The penalty increases to 120 days for a second offense. It is therefore essential that you have a clean driving record. In fact, you must have a clean license in order to take the test. Withholding any prior traffic violations could mean a revocation of your license.

It may seem like there are a lot of rules when it comes to getting a commercial license. However, these rules will keep everyone safe while you are on the road. Drivers who cannot see well could miss a turn or cause an accident. The last thing the public needs is hazardous materials spilling on the highway because a driver wasn’t qualified. For more information on obtaining your CDL, you can contact your local DMV office.
