Required by each state the driving school is located in, this type of surety bond can be known by several different terms such as a driver education or improvement bond. The surety bond guarantees the driving school will conduct ethical and legal business with their clients while following all state, county, and  city rules. States and cities usually require this bond. A driving school cannot acquire or maintain a business license without filing and maintaining a surety bond. The driving school cannot legally operate without a surety bond or a business license. There is no set bond amount since it varies by state and needs to cover each driving school location.

The driving school surety bond ensures the student’s tuition will not be misused or that there will not be any fraudulent behavior from the driving school. A bonded driving school expresses to clients that the school can be trusted to deliver promised services.
