How long do I have to obtain a North Dakota driver's license?

Nonresidents age 16 and over are not required to obtain a license until 60 days after residence has been established in North Dakota.  A person is deemed a resident of North Dakota when they have lived here for 90 days, unless they are a nonresident student, a tourist, or a member of the armed forces.
