The New Jersey trucking industry may have a variety of career options for new truck drivers, whether you want to drive straight trucks or tractor-trailers. To get started, look for a trucking school in your area. Winsor's Tractor Trailer Driving School offers the one and only trucking program in the city of Linden.
When you begin your truck driving education, you may start out in the classroom. This allows you to learn driving laws and safety tips. The hands-on part of your education takes you behind the wheel of a straight truck or tractor-trailer. This part of your education is done one-on-one with your instructor.
Linden is a fairly large urban center of over 40,000 people. It is also more affordable than many cities in New Jersey. Highways in this area include U.S. Route 27 and I-278. Some of the area's trucking employers are Con-Way Freight, J.B. Hunt, and NFI.
