Legislators in the State of Georgia have implemented a new surety bond bill concerning driver training schools. The new bill, which is titled HB 269, raises the current surety bond required of driver training schools from $2,500 to $10,000 in order for them to stay legal with the state. The higher bond amount provides four times the protection for anyone using services or doing business with driver training schools should a school not follow the rules set by the state.
