The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) is a part of the government of the U.S. state of North Dakota. NDDOT oversees the state's transportation system. This includes planning both new construction and reconstruction projects on roads and highways throughout the state. NDDOT also is responsible for the issuance of state driver's licenses.

Even though North Dakota is a small state in terms of population, it has a proportionally extensive transportation system. Per capita, the state of North Dakota has more miles of road than any other state in the United States, but NDDOT is the second smallest Department of Transportation within the country. Also, North Dakota has more registered vehicles than there are residents of the state.[2]

The director of the NDDOT is Francis Ziegler, and the central office is located on the North Dakota State Capitol grounds in Bismarck.
