(B) To register with a court, a surety bail bond agent shall file, with the clerk of the court, a copy of the agent's surety bail bond license, a copy of the agent's driver's license or state identification card, and a certified copy of the surety bail bond agent's appointment by power of attorney from each insurer that the surety bail bond agent represents. An agent shall renew the agent's registration biennially by the first day of August of each odd-numbered year.
