Bond (MV3764)

A driver school shall file with the department a bond or bond alternative in the amount established by the department.

The purpose of the bond is to permit the customer to apply to the bond company if obligations of the training contract cannot be met. The school shall file a bond or acceptable alternative based on size and performance. The size of the school and points assessed during the last previous license period shall be used to calculate the bond amount. Refer to the Driver School and Instructor Point System Chart for additional information.

The initial bond is based on 0 demerit points and the number of students:

  • 0 - 300 students = $5,000 coverage
  • 301 - 1100 students = $10,000 coverage
  • 1101 + students = $15,000 coverage
