The California Driving School Surety Bond is required by the State of California, Department of Motor Vehicles.
The required bond amount for the California Driving School Surety Bond is $10,000. The bond premium (the amount you actually pay) is only a small percentage of the bond amount.
This bond is required by the state of California for anyone applying for a Driving School Owner’s License. The bond must be on file during the application process and must go into effect before the business can start. See the list of other requirements for a Driving School Owner’s License.
The bond exists to help ensure the Driving School will not practice any fraud or make any fraudulent representation that will cause a monetary loss to a person taking driving instruction from the school. The bond protects all people receiving lessons and instruction from any malpractice on behalf of the driving school.
