Mike's Driving School is one of the premier driving schools in the State of New Jersey. They fully prepare you from the initials stages of passing your general knowledge and air brakes test to going on the road for your road test at the DMV. The environment is very welcoming and everyone makes you feel at home. The instructors all have a great personality and are all more than willing to help you succeed.If you're getting your CDL, there is no other school in which you should consider when Mike's Driving School is one of the options. If they are not one of your options, make sure you add them to your list now.
Im so glad i went with Mikes Driving School for my cdl. The instructors have over 100 years of experience driving trucks and it shows in their teaching. They really care about what they do and want everyone to pass. They will not let you give up on yourself. I graduated yesterday and by the end of the day they had a job lined up for me. They get it done for you!! Once you go to Mikes youre apart of their family forever. Mike, John, Alex, Jim, Dan, and Wade I want to thank you guys for caring so much at what you guys do.
I am so happy to have gone to Mike's Driving School to get my CDL class A. It was a really fun and enjoyable time of my life and I learned so much.
The school has a relaxed atmosphere that really helps you learn without feeling any pressure or demands that I have felt at other schools and colleges. The instructors are wonderful all of them are verry helpful and know there jobs really well. Not only did they teach me what I needed to know to drive a truck they also taught me a lot about the industry and what it is like to be a professional driver.
I had a lot of time behind the wheel to practice driving the trucks. I really liked how the classes were a small size, that way the instructors could focus on individual students strengths and weaknesses and really mold us into fantastic drivers.
I have already recommended Mike's Driving School to a few friends of mine and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in becoming a professional Driver.
Nothing but high praise to Mike's Driving School and all their instructors. Strongly recommend anybody wanting to become professional truck drivers to look here first. They are hands down, top notch class act guys and are more than qualified and eager to help you obtain your goals. I'm glad I chose Mike's and I'm sure you will too.
I am so happy about choosing Mike's Driving school for my daughter to take her test and complete her 6 hours. From the first phone call to get information to walking in the office to her instructor picking her up, each and every one of the staff are all the same....Welcoming, Funny, professional, personable, and ALWAYS HAVE A SMILE!! They have all been so helpful ensuring my daughter was comfortable. You guys have an awesome team there and you should be extremely proud! Thank you!
Choose Mike's!!! Great ownership. Super staff. Best Instructors hands down!! If you want to learn how to drive a tractor trailer like a professional regardless of how far you live choose Mike's!!!!!!!!
Michelle took Brenfan for his test. She was great! She made him feel at ease going into the test . She was just great ! Thanks so much for everything.
Mike's School of Trucking has taught me not just how to pass the state's CDL test but how to BE a truck driver.I learned the following:
They even helped me with employment! They brought in quite a few companies looking for drivers and the one company that stuck out compared to all the rest was Comcar. I am pleased to say, I am departing NJ on the 19th and heading to Atlanta, GA to begin my new career as a truck driver.Mike’s School of Trucking is truly hands down the BEST trucking school in the area!

I enrolled in the CDL A class a year ago. I started the week before Thanksgiving 2014. I was in a class by myself, which is why my experience was so unique. I was 24 and had no experience with manual transmissions or had ever been next to a tractor- trailer. I was so terrified and excited at the same time. In my time spent at Mike's, I had impeccable one-on-one training almost every day as well as the most calm and patient instructorsI had ever met.I received my CDL A in March 2015, and went on to get my Passenger endorsement, which included a Bus Test. By April 2015 I was the proud holder of a Commercial Driver's License A --the highest license you can get-- and I was so amazed at how far I'd come.A few months went by after i obtained my CDL, and my instructors always kept in touch with me. I received a phone call to see if i had found any work in my field, which I hadn't.It is now November 2015, just a year after I started my CDL journey and I am an instructor/receptionist here at Mike's Driving School. I couldn't be any happier!!
I checked out other schools for my CDL A before I heard about Mike's and I left those schools feeling discouraged. I really wanted the CDL A but I was told by those schools I may be better just getting the B license and driving the bus.
I went to Mike's and spoke with John. I left knowing I would be a student there and I would get my CDL A. Today I got my CDL A!
The instructors were incredibly patient and encouraging. When I struggled they reassured I would get it and when I succeeded they were my cheering squad. I had a great class too. We all worked together and helped eachother which I really feel helped us be successful.
When I began at Mike's I was terrified and questioned what was I thinking. Now just 2 months later I'm getting ready to travel the country in an 18 wheeler. I am just so grateful to Mike's and all of the wonderful instructors.
So if your reading this review and deciding which school you would like to attend, it's a no brainer. You will get more truck time and more instructor time than any other driving school out there and the personal experience is second to none.
