ARTICLE 1. Qualification and Licensing [1800 - 1823]
  ( Article 1 added by Stats. 1937, Ch. 654. )


A bail solicitor’s license, by its terms, permits the licensee to transact bail on behalf of and as the employee of the holder of the bail licenses therein designated while there is in effect and on file with the commissioner an unrevoked appointment of the solicitor by such license holder. In all matters respecting the transaction of bail, it shall be conclusively presumed that such solicitor acted on behalf of and pursuant to the instructions of the appointing license holder. A bail solicitor’s license shall not be issued until there is filed with the commissioner an appointment of such solicitor, effective upon issue of the license executed by the holder of a bail agent’s license or bail permittee’s license, or both such licenses. Such appointment shall state that the license holder appoints the solicitor and will employ him in the transaction of bail, until notice is filed with the commissioner revoking the appointment. Such appointment and license shall permit the bail solicitor to transact only the undertakings of bail or bail bonds which the license or licenses of the appointing license holder permits such license holder to transact.

Before the issuance of a bail solicitor’s license, the applicant shall file a bond in the penal sum of one thousand dollars ($1,000) conditioned upon the proper application and disposal of all moneys collected or received by the solicitor, in favor of the people of the State of California.
