Minot State University offers a noncredit Minor Driver License Recertification Internet Course to persons under the age of 18 who have had their drivers license cancelled by the North Dakota Department of Transportation. The course is approved for instruction in North Dakota pursuant to North Dakota Century code 39-06-01.1 and North Dakota Administrative Code Article 38-07. This course deals with driving behavior patterns that caused the cancellation of the minor’s license.
