DMV Practice Tests in North Dakota
Practicing is the best way to ensure success on your written exam. Learn all about ND practice tests, how taking a test can benefit you, and types of practice tests available in North Dakota.
What Is a ND DMV Practice Test?
In the most simplistic terms, a DMV practice test is an interactive study guide that will help you prepare to take a written exam at the Department of Transportation.
The content you'll find on these industry-leading practice tests has been sourced from the the North Dakota Noncommercial Drivers License Manual (Form DL07/21) and is presented to you in written test format.
With a practice test, you'll get experience with the type of exam you'll see on the day you go to get your license.
Why Take a Practice Test?
To prepare for the North Dakota DOT written exam, the North Dakota DOT suggests studying the ND driver manual. Unfortunately, not everyone has time to read the entire manual and to dig through the information for review.
A more time-efficient option is to prepare for your written exam with a practice test offered by our certified partner. With a practice test from our certified partner, you'll immediately access key information and solidify your knowledge by testing yourself on the need-to-know information.
When you get your practice test, you can take your test in one of two ways:
- Testing mode. In this mode, you'll be asked to answer all the questions before you get a score. This mimics the experience of your ND written exam.
- Study guide mode. If you choose this format, you'll be given the answers as you go, so you can learn while you take your test.
As mentioned above, the questions on your practice test will come directly from material in your ND driver handbook.
Here are a few examples:
Q. Should you always follow the speed limit?
A. No, the speed limit only indicates how fast you're allowed to drive when there are favorable conditions.
Q. At railroad crossings, intersections and crosswalks you should always:
A. Look to both sides of your vehicle.
Q. What does a white painted curb mean?
A. Stop only long enough to drop off/pick up passengers or mail.
