About Our CDL School In Linden, NJ

Exterior of Driving Academy's school in Linden, NJ

Our story began with a need to help people get on the road to freedom. Jonathan, Driving Academy’s founder, recognized that being a CDL driver awarded flexibility that other traditional jobs do not offer. After finding a need for quality CDL training, he and his associates started crafting plans to create their own CDL school.

Now, Driving Academy is seen as a top CDL driving school. Students across the US travel to our locations to learn and grow. We offer advanced technologies, like our driving simulators, to ensure students receive the education they deserve. One of the main goals of Driving Academy is to employ experienced, qualified driving professionals who share knowledge of their craft.

Eric and our instructors are all about helping you succeed in the world of truck driving.
