Driver education providers in Michigan are licensed by the Michigan Secretary of State.
As a licensed driver education provider, you are required to obtain a surety bond. The amount of the surety bond required depends on the number of your students in the calendar year, or the type of driving school education provided.
Our surety agency provides the surety bond required as both a new and renewal bond.
