Are you looking for an exciting career in bail bonding?
Becoming a bail bondsman in most states is fairly easy and straightforward. You’ll have to go to school (usually a few days in duration), pass a background check, take a test, provide residency and other documentation, pay some money to your state, and you’re licensed!
Are you sure you want to do that?
There’s many challenges to being a bondsman. It can be a challenge to get your foot in the door and start making money. Then once your phone starts ringing, it’ll ring all hours of the day and night. You’ll get calls while you’re in the shower. Thanksgiving dinner might get interrupted. You’ll get cussed out and lied to. Your fellow bondsmen will sometimes be a friend to your face and then stab you in the back. You’ll have clients you hate, and clients you love, and clients who break your heart. You’ll have weeks where you don’t make any money at all, followed by weeks where you make enough to take your breath away.
Still want to be a bondsman?
There’s some characteristics that can help:
- backbone (also known as intestinal fortitude)
- attentiveness to details
- organization skills
- ability to multitask & switch gears easily
- great communication skills in person & on phone
- ability to use smartphone & computer/tablet
Let’s bust a few myths:
- You don’t have to be a badass. If arresting people is not your thing, that’s ok!
- You don’t have to be a man.
- As long as you meet your state’s requirements, age does not matter.
- You don’t have to work 24/7/365 – our team approach gets you get a break when you need one.
- You don’t have to carry a firearm (although we recommend that ALL people be armed under the 2nd Amendment)
- You don’t have to get licensed first, then find an agency. We recommend that you connect with us first so that we can help you and encourage you through the prelicensing and licensing process!
