North Dakota Teen Auto Insurance

Like many other states, North Dakota has adopted a Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) system. This is intended to reduce the number of accidents caused inexperienced teenage drivers. The system is designed to gradually introduce inexperienced drivers to more and more driving privileges as they gain behind-the-wheel experience culminating in an official North Dakota driver license.

North Dakota Graduated Driver License Requirements
The GDL is intended for aspiring drivers at least 14 years old.

To obtain a driver permit:

  • Be at least 14 years old
  • Pass written and vision tests
  • Provide proof of residency and identity
  • Provide Social Security card

Permit is good for one year during which teen driver must successfully complete driver education program.

To obtain a restricted license, a teen must be at least 16 years old. The North Dakota DMV will determine the terms of the restricted license based upon the teen’s record to that point.

North Dakota Teen Driver Restrictions
During the permit period, a parent, legal guardian, or licensed driver 18 years or older must accompany the teen in the front seat at all times. The licensed driver must have at least three years of driving experience.

If a teen driver violates any of the GDL conditions, it could result in license delays or suspensions. In addition, a teen could accumulate points on their driving record, which can lead to license suspension.
