Basic requirements:

  • You must have a clean criminal record with no felonies
  • Have a driver’s license or ID card to prove residence
  • You must be able to understand and participate in the licensing process

A bail bonds agent is not a bounty hunter or private investigator like you see on TV or in the movies. As a bail bonds agent you will be licensed through the Alabama Department of Insurance and work closely with local courts and law enforcement officials.

Testing and pre-exam classes

The process involves taking a pre-exam class to prepare, paying the required fees and taking the exam. Examinations are administered by the department of insurance testing vendor. You will have to submit your fingerprints for an FBI background check and be sponsored by a professional bail bonds company to take examinations for licensing.

Before you submit your application for license examination you’ll have to take and pass a twenty hour pre-licensing class. Authority can help you with this and make sure you are properly prepared to take the license exam. Call or contact us today to learn how to get started right away.
