Virginia Driver Training School Bond

How much does a driving school bond cost in Virginia?

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles requires owners of driving training schools to post surety bonds to legally work within the state. Class A driver training schools must post a $100,000 surety bond and Class B schools must post a $5,000 surety bond.

These bonds are subject to underwriting, so the amount you’ll pay depends on a review of your personal credit report. Because these bonds are school-related, having current business financials and a personal financial statement handy when you contact SuretyBonds.com will expedite the bonding process.
