Becoming a Bail Bondsman: What You Need to Know

Are you interested in becoming a bail bondsman? If so, you'll need to understand the requirements and steps involved in the process. In New York, all bail bondsmen must pass an exam before applying for a license. This exam is known as the 17-59 Bail Bail Broker Exam series. In addition, property guarantors, bail bondsmen, bondsmen, and agents must be licensed.

The dollar amount of the control agreement must be equal to the total amount of the asset guarantor's debt (total amount of pledged security x).In Florida, there are five basic steps to becoming a licensed bail bondsman. These include taking an approved 120-hour course, taking an approved course by correspondence, submitting an application for a temporary agent license and undergoing a background check, completing a one-year internship with an authorized bail bond agent, and passing a final exam awarded by the state Department of Financial Services.

Bond agents are any persons authorized by the DCJS who engage in the activity of bonds and are therefore authorized to conduct business in all Commonwealth courts.

If you're looking to prepare for a career as a bail bondsman, focus on computer science, accounting, mathematics, government, social studies, and geography. There is no way to gain direct experience as a bondsman before becoming certified or licensed, but you will gain experience by completing the bondsman associations sponsored courses that are required to become licensed.

It is also important to understand the licensing law for private investigators, bail enforcement agents, surveillance, surveillance or patrol agencies, and security guards. A lawyer can be a licensed bondsman as long as he does not grant bail to any person if he is also a lawyer representing that person. A bail enforcement agent (bounty hunter) is a person or entity that (paying a fee) detains people who have not appeared on bail or bail and hands them over to the appropriate jail or court. For example, one of Oklahoma's requirements for those who want to work as bail bondsmen is to complete 16 hours of education sponsored by the Oklahoma Bail Bondsmen's Association before they can sit for the licensing exam and start working.
