How to become a North Carolina Bail Bond Agent
The first step to operating a profitable bail bonds service is getting licensed by the North Carolina Department of Insurance. Amistad will explain the minimum requirements you must meet in order to apply and help with the mandatory two day series of pre-licensing classes. The next step is sending your application and other required documents to the North Carolina Department of Insurance (NCDOI). You will receive a qualification letter with instructions for scheduling the exam.
An Important Reminder
Under North Carolina law, all new bail bonds agents must work under the supervision of an agent who has been licensed for at least two years or more. After you pass the exam, you’ll receive your license in the mail and you can start working as an agent.
- You must be a resident of North Carolina, 21 or older
- You must have a clean criminal record with no felonies
- Have a drivers 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. Bounty hunting and that sort of activity is illegal in our state. As a bail bonds agent you will be licensed through the North Carolina Department of Insurance and work closely with local courts and law enforcement officials.
You must meet the state minimum requirements in order to get a bail bondsman license in North Carolina. Requirements include completing a two day pre-licensing training course and fingerprinting for a thorough background check to show you have a clean criminal record. Amistad can guide you through the application and examination process to help get your license.

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, Pearson Vue and you must pay a $56.50 exam fee at test time. You will have to submit your fingerprints for an FBI background check and be sponsored by a surety bail bonds company to take examinations for licensing.
Before you submit your application for license examination you’ll have to take and pass a twelve hour pre-licensing class. Amistad 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.
What It Costs:
- Pre-licensing class - about $400 to $500
- Application fees - about $320
- Fingerprinting fee - about $25

After you finish the classes and send in your application, the state will send you a qualification letter with instructions as to when and where to take the exam. If you pass the exam, you’ll receive your license in the mail and may begin working under the supervision of an experienced bail bonds agent.
Getting a license takes some time but the rewards are worth the effort. Work through the process, do your best and you’ll find a whole new world of exciting career opportunities available to you. Amistad Bail Bonds agents are happy to answer any questions and help you get started.
