DMV Appointments in North Dakota
The Department of Transportation (DOT) offers an appointment system for road tests and driver's license renewal tests.
To schedule a road test, simply use the ND DOT Driver's License Road Test Scheduler. Road test appointments may be scheduled, rescheduled or cancelled using this system. You must enter your name, date of birth and driver's ID exactly as it appears on your permit.
To schedule a road test by phone, call your local driver's license site.
Not all tasks require an in-person visit to the ND DOT. Find out what you can take care of from your own computer by accessing our Online Services page.
