I attended the smith and Solomon school in deptford NJ. The experience was 1st class, the instructors were very informative and always there to answer any question you had and they made sure you understood. The instructors Will,Steve,Mark,Mike and Malcombe are extremely professional and knowledgeable. The office staff Beverly and Jeanette are also very professional and knowledgeable and will assist you in any way they need to and make your experience smooth and easy. I just wanted to thank each and every person at smith and Solomon who helped me get my class A CDL. Thanks again

Best CDL school by far, in terms of instructors, new trucks, and a very large and spacious training yards. Instructors were very helpful in on yard training and on road. More than 8 trucks active at all time. Had a very good learning experience. Five stars in my books.

If I could do it, you too can!
I got my CDL A with the help of one of the most outstanding schools in the Tristate – SMITH AND SOLOMON – Linden NJ. Age, gender, and language are not barriers to getting your CDL as long as you have the urge to learn.
Kudos to the Instructions and preparations right from day one, and it is inspiring. All Smith and Solomon need is your sincere presence and eagerness to learn. Some of my friends finished early within a limited time. The instructors will well notice your presence on campus. As soon as they know you are ready, they put the students on the road with well experienced great teachers/instructors, Mr. Ross and Mr. Eddie. Their eyes are keen on the student’s driving mistakes and providing proper and precise feedback. Mr. Tom Nicholas, the facility leader/manager, identifies every student. He is very thorough and up to date with the DMV procedures helps the students to take the road test. Mr. Darren and Mr. Blue are known for equipping the students in the knowledge test and shaping driving skills. Practicing in the yard is prohibited without the knowledge test and Airbrake. The King of Alloy Docking, Mr. Dennis, elegantly teaches with much patience and passion. Great experience to learn from Mr. Dennis. Mr. Ruben guides everyone and provides last min tips at the DMV. I greatly acknowledge Smith and Solomon for their outstanding service in teaching truck driving. Please Join to get your CDL.

During my training at Smith & Solomon I learned a lot about myself and how to get the most out of what I was being taught. The instructors there know what they are talking about. Some are a little more aggressive than others, and sometimes you may get conflicting information. The key is to ask questions, research, and make an educated decision from there. Always refer to the MVC Commercial Driver’s Manual, then then ask questions based upon that information. In my opinion, you should study Air Brakes first, and then pretrip inspection. Every day you should do this until you go to the MVC for your road test. Do not expect these trainers to hold your hand, they give you the information and you have to take the initiative to use it on a daily basis. No school is perfect, but Smith & Solomon, to me, is by far the best. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Smith & Solomon. If you’re serious about tractor trailer training, and you don’t mind developing a healthy study habit, then this will be the most rewarding program for you.

Special shoutout to Tom Nicholson! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. You made the classes and lot hours very productive! I learned so much and am very confident about going out on the road after having you teach me the ropes. You always put your best and time into helping every student and we are all very grateful. I will say that the school and lot is very lucky to have you!

For anyone who is thinking about getting their CDL… Do it! and ask for Tom!

There’s so much I can say. My team at Smith and Solomon Linden first began as my instructors and classmates but now they are my family. I started taking classes to attain my CDL at a program in NY but I soon heard positive remarks about a program in Linden. After some research I decided to give this program a try. I am so grateful that I was able to develop my skills at this school. From tireless weekends to phone calls with my classmates and to the amazing instructors I am immensely grateful. Thank you to the instructors Tom, Denise, Darren, Blue, Jose, Richie, Eddie, Ross, and Ruben. I appreciate all of your help and patience with me. Thank you to the admin team for everything as well. And finally thank you to my amazing classmates who rooted for me the entire time. I passed my CDL training today! If you are thinking about what school to train at please consider Smith and Solomon in Linden, NJ!

Smith and Solomon is great training facility that offers a hands on approach to ensuring anyone interested in getting a CDL, Success.

Best choice *****

Appreciation review

My story begins in the middle of November when friend of mine recommended me the Smith and Solomon school in King of Prussia so I moved from NYC to Philadelphia, just because of the school, but still wanted to keep my NY Driver License. First we had classes in school and we got all the things enough to pass the test in Philadelphia, but not in NYC. I have had struggled with writing test in DMV. After so many times I failed, I wanted to give up. I went to the school talk to Manager George and shared my problem. So next day Manager George brought me some more questions what could help me to pass the writing test. After one and half months struggling I finally pass the test and started beginning of January 2021 with Yard skills. One of my friends moved from NYC to Hawaii and invited me to celebrate her birthday together. I spoke to Manager George and asked for help if is possible to get the road test before 10th of February when I wanted to go to Hawaii so I can relax myself before I start to work. That’s basically short time of period to put all the things together get everything done. I made commitment with George to come every day to the school from 7 am – 4:30 pm, except Friday. I got scheduled for the road test on 8th of February. I pass the Road test. So 3 weeks later I’m coming back from Hawaii and wanted to share my story with all of you.

Graduated Feb. 2014, from the Lakewood, NJ campus. Went to Schneider, drove for a year and became a Training Engineer, did that for 3 months, then became an Instructor. Now, a year and 6 months later, I am the Southeast Regional Training Advisor, relocated to Charlotte, N.C.

June 13, 2014

I graduated your school during the summer of 2012 and landed a local driving job immediately and haven’t looked back since. My life is back on track after being laid off in early 2012 and I’m on target to make over $75,000 this year. Again, thank you for the new skill. I just learned that truck drivers are more in the demand than ever as rules, laws, and regulations get more challenging, along with the next generation of truck drivers starting to retire creating a big hole in the industry.

March 26, 2014

The instructors made it easy to learn and made the task enjoyable. The quality of the program is excellent.
