So you got a ticket and now you’re stuck with points on your driving record. We can help with that and hopefully teach you a thing or two about safe driving along the way. And no, we won’t lecture you about your ticket….we’ll leave that to your mom (or whoever the loving, nurturing figure is in your life).
Here’s how it works:
In North Dakota your license will be suspended when you accumulate 12 points. If you’re under the age of 18, your license will be cancelled after 6 points.
- Complete a course approved by the ND Department of Transportation (see below)
- Receive an official certificate of completion (after you pay)
- Turn your certificate into the ND DOT for consideration
Courses That Qualify For A Point Reduction
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I prove I took the course?
A: After you pay for and complete an approved course, we’ll provide you with a certificate of completion. If you attended the course for an insurance discount or point reduction on your ND license, it is your responsibility to send the certificate to your insurance agent and/or the DOT or court that referred you.
For an insurance discount, forward the top portion of the certificate to your insurance agent.
To receive a point reduction, you may either email a scanned copy of your certificate to DRS@nd.gov or forward the bottom portion to:
Driver’s License Division
ND Department of Transportation
608 East Boulevard
Bismarck, ND 58505
Q: Can this help me avoid a license suspension?
A: Taking an approved course could help you avoid a license suspension but WILL NOT cancel a mandatory suspension or violation, nor will it cancel any action already being taken against your driving record.
Q: What if my driver’s license is from another state?
A: If your license is not issued by the NDDOT, contact your state DOT to see if one of these courses qualifies in your state.
Q: What if I lose my certificate of completion?
A. If you lose your certificate, there is a $10 replacement fee to obtain a new one. Contact the NDSC at 701-223-6372 or 800-932-8890 to submit your request.
