Guarantor Information

A guarantor must be a person over the age of 21, usually a parent, who agrees to be responsible if you are ever unable to fulfill the financial obligations of your license.  It is similar to having a co-signer.  Please provide the information below for the person who you expect to serve as your guarantor.

You must provide contact information for a guarantor as part of this application. If you are offered a license, the person you indicate as your guarantor will be contacted and asked to fill out an online guarantor agreement.
