Why do I need this bond?

California driving school and ATV safety training surety bonds ensure that principals (driving school owners and ATV training safety organizations) refrain from committing fraud or making any fraudulent representation that will cause monetary loss to a student.

If the principal violates the terms of his or her bond agreement and a consumer is harmed as a result, the surety will cover damages up to the full bond amount. The principal must reimburse the surety for any damages paid out.
