The duration of time required for a bail agent to post a bond depends on how busy the respective jail is during the booking process. It can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours. Another factor that matters is the type of charges associated with the individual. If the person arrested has been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or any other alcohol related charges, he is required to be held until their alcohol content drops below a certain level. In addition, it is important for the person being arrested to be cooperative, polite and courteous during the booking process.
