Driver and Traffic Safety Education

Minot State University is required to notify students whether or not our program meets the licensure requirements of each state. The information provided is a general indication of whether or not our program meets licensure requirements. For programs with multiple licensing options or pathways, students will need to work with their advisor and/or program director to complete additional research to determine if our program meets those requirements.

The information is accurate as of the time it was last reviewed. However, licensing requirements change, so it is always good to speak to your advisor and/or program director about your plans for licensure and to check with state/territorial licensing bodies about specific requirements.

If you are interested in pursuing licensure in one of the states listed below where we have not made a determination, please contact Minot State Online prior to making application and we will make a determination. To find your state's licensing agencies and review their requirements, please refer to the list of licensing agencies by state on the Education Licensing Bodies web page.
