At Mr. Driving School, we believe education transforms lives. That’s why we invite you to review the information below and start the admissions process with us today. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
All of your lessons will be personalized specifically to you in order to make the most of each lesson. While there may be multiple students in the yard, your truck will not be shared with anyone else
Manual Shift Trucks
We have both Automatic and Manual transmission trucks available. Keep in mind, most companies are adding automatic trucks to their fleets so the need for manual transmission licenses has decreased drastically.
Monday to Saturday
We understand that everyone has different work schedules, that's why we have lessons available Monday to Saturday, mornings and evenings, to fit around your schedule.*
Online and In-Person Courses
We offer an online theory program that will prepare you so you can take your written test with confidence and get your permit.
We will assign you one instructor throughout your whole time with us to avoid starting from scratch each lesson. Your instructor will be available for calls and texts anytime, even if you aren't yet scheduled for your appointment.
Payment plans and financing is available for any student. Don't let anything stop you from getting your license!**
All of our programs include the following:
Entry Level Driver Training
As of February 7, 2022, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is requiring any new student to train with a federally regulated driving trainer.
We provide the required training divided in three parts: Theory, Range, Public Road.
The thoery portion of the ELDT covers what you need to know in order to take your CDL written exams at your local Motor Vehicle Offices. This part of the training works for all CDL types of training, from Buses to Trucks. We offer in-person and online training consisting of 48 courses and examinations. Once you have completed the training, our CDL Coordinator will register in the FMCSA system to be able to take your written test.
Once you have taken your written tests at the DMV/MVC, you have to make sure to obtain your CLP so you can start in-person Behind-The-Wheel (BTW) training. At Mr. Driving School, we offer this training for New Jersey residents only.The first part of Behind-The-Wheel training takes place in our private yard. Each student will train one-on-one with a truck at their own pace. The range training consists of the Inspection/Pre-Trip and Basic Skill lessons.
After the completion of the the Range portion of BTW training, We will continue on the Road training to make sure the student is completely ready for the road test. You will learn to drive confidently and safely on roads with other vehicles, on highways, braking, turning, and more.
Once each of these training portions are finished, the school will enter your information into the FMCSA registry in order for you to continue to the next step of the training, or if you've already done all of the training, in order to get your license.
