In order for you to offer the Florida Class E driving exam, your business must first be licensed by the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles. (DHSMV)
Additionally, you are required to obtain a $200,000 third party Class E driving administrator exam performance bond.
This $200,000 third party administrator exam surety bond is required of you as a financial guarantee that you will abide by Section 322.54 of Florida’s state statutes in the administration of your dutiels.
The bond also serves as a financial protection and indemnity for Class E driver license applicants who are harmed or defrauded in some way by a third party administrator.
Evidence of harm may be demonstrated if a third party administrator or employees, or operators of a business were convicted of some crime involving matters dealing with the Class E exam.
However, according to the same laws, liability which may be applicable to a third party administrator are not only limited to matters in which there is a criminal or civil conviction in court.
The premium for this performance surety bond may be as low as 1.5%, or $3,000 annually.
