Motor Vehicle Dealers Bond Application

All 50 states and the District of Columbia require motor vehicle dealer surety bonding as part of the procedure for getting licensed to sell automobiles. Bonding guarantees compliance with regulations and rules associated with the sale of a motor vehicle protecting the customer rather than the principal (the dealer). To obtain a bond, auto dealers must follow laws set out in their state of business, as bonding is done at the state level, and requirements vary by state.

Why do I Need a Bond?

A bond is required, so that third parties can make claims if they are sold a vehicle that does not have a free and clear title. Bonding is a necessary step in applying for a license, auto dealers must file their bond with their state’s appropriate regulating body, usually the Department of Motor Vehicles. Then, the dealers can receive their license. The vehicle dealer bond can be a confusing part of obtaining a license, which is why Meadowbrook Direct handles the process for clients.

What do Bonds for Dealers Do?

The intention of a bond is to protect customers and each state from motor vehicle dealers who commit fraudulent acts. This bond ensures that the auto dealership follows legislation for dealerships, according to the laws of the particular state in which the dealership does business.
