Apply to become a licensed producer with authority to write surety and fidelity (including bail bonds). If you are a producer licensed for surety, limited lines P&C, of full P&C lines of authority, you are able to contract with insurers who write surety and fidelity coverage.
Obtaining your insurance producer license is only the first step in obtaining the ability to write bail bonds. Once you have become licensed, contract with surety insurers in order to represent them for the bail bonds they are willing to write in the State of Michigan. Then contact the chief justice of the specific courts in which you desire to write bail bonds to ask how you can be approved for the court's list of acceptable bail bond underwriters/producers. Each chief justice and/or judge determines for his/her court(s) which bail bond underwriters/producers are acceptable.
