While the general knowledge DOT test is conducted as a first point of assessment for new drivers in every state, there are some differences in the size and content of the exam around the country. Taking the permit test in Fargo, Minot, Bismarck or any other North Dakota city means that you will be faced with a 25-question exam and expected to answer at least 19 questions correctly. Approximately two thirds of the ND DMV test will cover road rule topics, like right-of-way, seat belt laws, using intersections, expressway entry and exit procedures, choosing a driving lane, passenger laws and parking rules. The remaining third of the permit test will target regulatory signs, warning signs, guide signs, work zone signs and pavement markings. Many students choose to begin their preparation for the exam by learning about road signs and pavement markings.
