How does it work?

The Oregon Commercial Driving School Partnership Bond must be filed with the Oregon Department of Transportation Driver and Motor Vehicle Services and must be issued by a surety bond provider certified by the Oregon Department of Insurance. The parties in the agreement are the Principal (applicant), Obligee (Oregon State Dept. of Transportation Driver and Motor Vehicle Services), and Surety/Bond Company or Obligor (surety bond provider or insurance).

The Bond Company will guarantee the compensation (performance bond) of the Obligee should the Principal fail to meet their standards or violate other licensing provisions. The Surety Company will assess the validity of claims, where claims may only amount to the total penal sum agreed upon in the bond form. The Principal shall reimburse all expenses covered by the Surety Company.

The Bond Company is secured through an indemnity agreement as the licensed business is mandated by law for the full reimbursement of the claims, including legal fees and premiums. This agreement shall be made before the execution of the bond and shall ascertain the businesses responsibility over their dealings.

While the total bond amount is set at $2,500, the Oregon Commercial Driving School Partnership Bond itself is normally at $100, depending on the surety carrier.
