Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)
Bail Bond Pre-Licensing
Ohio has specific requirements on what is needed before you can take the state exam. Prior to taking an examination, Ohio resident applicants must complete a pre-licensing education course from an approved pre-license provider. The educational requirements may be met by either successfully completing a 20 hour classroom course, or successfully completing an approved self-study course. Upon completing the required pre-licensing education program, applicants will be issued a Course Completion Certificate for the line of authority completed. This certificate is valid for a period of 180 calendar days, and the corresponding state exam must be successfully completed during this period. Applicants will not be admitted to a state exam without the original, unaltered course completion certificate(s) for each corresponding line of authority. We offer both of the above options to obtain your course completion certificate.

Questions on the proctoring process?
The requirement for a proctor for self-study examinations has been removed from rule 3901-5-07. This allows students to fulfill their self-study requirements without a proctor overseeing the exam. Students completing their pre-licensing requirements using the self-study method are still required to complete an affidavit attesting that they have completed the exam independently and without accessing course materials.
