Who We’ve Worked for and What They Have to Say

Over the past 14 years J. Bumsted & Associates has become a trusted resource for many diverse clients in the transportation industry. Here’s what just a few have to say.


As someone who runs a small to medium sized operation, flexibility is key! John and his team worked fantastically with us at getting our guys through the training on our schedule, without sacrificing quality. John takes it personally that the guys he trains are getting set up to become first class operators. I highly recommend John’s company/services and will use him again and again. It’s so much better having people learn on the equipment they are going to run! I can’t recommend J. Bumsted & Associates enough.

When I started CQS Materials, LLC i didn’t realize it would be so hard to find drivers. I found out about John and had him train good employees that didn’t have their class B CDLs. John has done a great job at instructing the guys. We have had 4 drivers go through his course and passed the training on their first attempt. He is very detailed and thorough in his instruction. We definitely plan to continue using him in the future.

John Bumsted & Associates helped me to obtain my CDL for my family’s farming operation. Mr. Bumsted was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. He was always accessible to answer questions and give me one-on-one attention. He reached out to personal contacts to help me with an issue with my permit, and was in contact throughout the process to make sure I got it done. I found his materials to be easy to follow and extremely helpful. His instructions on the driving and skills tests were spot on, and I had no issues in passing. He was also friendly and professional throughout the process. I would highly recommend this company for CDL training.

John and Kurt were working as our enforcement officers before they retired from their first careers. Once they did, and started CDL training classes, I inquired because I had recently purchased the business from my parents and needed to get my Class B CDL with air brakes. They were offering classes, and it did not quite suit my schedule. They offered to do a one-on-one class for me. We scheduled a block of time to be in the classroom, and it worked perfectly. The day after my classroom was over, I went and tested and got my permit. We got into the hands-on driving portion, and it was invaluable. There were the requirements of earning my license along with the practicalities of being in a large motor coach on the road that were taught to me. I continued to practice on my own with some of my people supervising and when I went to take my test, I passed on the first try. The time and money value were worth every single penny and every single moment. If I had to go back and do it again, I would not change a thing.
