New Jersey CDL License Requirements
All CDL applicants must comply with all medical fitness and vision requirements. The minimum age for a CDL license is 18, but you must be 21 to apply for a hazardous material or passenger CDL endorsements, or to drive any commercial vehicle outside of the state (interstate).
Class A CDL License
If you are interested in tractor trailer driving you will need to have a Class A CDL license. With a Class A CDL license you can also operate Class B vehicles and Class C vehicles, provided you have the proper extra CDL endorsements.
The first step is to begin studying and preparing for your theory tests with our proven method of study. You must pass 3 theory tests: general knowledge, air brakes and combination vehicles. The theory tests are administered at most Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) locations and consist of 50 questions for general knowledge, 25 questions for air brakes, 25 questions for combination vehicles.
After you pass all 3 required theory tests you will then begin to view our instructional videos, and you will also begin your driving lessons. Once you have mastered tractor trailer driving, we will take you to your road tests.
Class B CDL License (Straight Truck, Bus)
If you are interested in straight truck driving or a bus driving you will need to have a Class B CDL license. With a Class B CDL license you can also operate Class C vehicles, provided you have the proper extra CDL endorsements.
The first step is to begin studying and preparing for your theory tests with our proven method of study. You must pass 2 theory tests: general knowledge and air brakes. The theory tests are administered at most MVC locations and consist of 50 questions for general knowledge and 25 questions for air brakes.
After you pass both required theory tests you will then begin to view our instructional videos, and you will also begin your driving lessons. Once you have mastered straight truck driving and/or bus driving, we will take you to your road test.
Bus: If you wish to use your Class B CDL license for bus driving you must also meet the requirements for a passenger CDL endorsement. It is recommended that you pass the requirements for the passenger CDL endorsement when you are going for your Class B CDL license because the difference in cost is minimal and you will be able to drive a full-sized bus in addition to a straight truck.

My name is Yvette, and I live in Elizabeth. I have a daughter whom is deaf, and recently obtained her drivers permit. I have never seen her so happy. She was excited because she has something regular kids her age have, a permit. That happiness was about to change. It was time to find a driving instructor for her. I searched high and low and called every driving school in the Union, Essex, Middlesex, and Bergen County area. All of the schools refused to teach her how to drive because she was deaf. I was so upset and hurt, because they were not even willing to give her a chance. I didn't have the heart to tell my daughter so I kept lying telling her, I was waiting for call backs. Well as luck would have it one day at DMV someone I know there introduced me to a driving instructor. We started talking and I explained my situation. Without hesitation he was willing to teach my daughter how to drive. Later that week I arranged to have him come and meet my daughter. As luck would have it she took to him well that he took her driving. When she came home and he left she was like a kid in a candy store. I have never seen her fingers move so fast in sign language to tell me how it went. I could tell I found the right person and the right driving school. My daughter bugs me every day to call or email him so she can drive. She enjoys her time with him. She says he is very calm and relaxed and he makes driving fun. She said he doesn't treat like a Deaf person; he treats her like a person. That right there was the highlight that made me cry....The driving school is ROAD RULES DRIVING SCHOOLand the instructors name is MIKE..
If you or anyone you know with a (any) disability, before you drive yourself crazy searching for a driving school or instructor call him. You will not regret it. I promise you. Between him and his staff you cannot find any better. They will make you feel like family. So remember if you want to learn call ROAD RULES ask for MIKE. If you want to waste your time and money than call someone else.
Mike was extremely professional and courteous during my daughter's driving lesson. For someone who was nervous driving, he made her feel very relaxed and confident. I find now that she is a very confident driver and knows the rules of the road extremely well. I am so thankful that my daughter had such a great instructor! Thanks to Mike I am a little bit more relaxed with the idea of her driving!
I am happy to recommend Mike and Road Rules Driving School. Not only did Mike quickly form a trusting relationship with my daughter and tailor his instruction exactly to her needs, but he went above and beyond driving instruction. He patiently answered all my questions via phone and email, and he even went to the DMV for us to reschedule my daughter’s road test appointment! He made us both feel confident, welcoming my participation in the process, and his prices are competitive. I will definitely be calling Mike again when my younger daughters are ready to learn to drive.
