Auto Dealer Bonds are sometimes also called Used Car Dealer Bonds, DMV Bonds, Motor Vehicle Dealer Bonds, Dealer Surety Bonds and MVD bonds. All these terms refer to the same thing. They are mostly required by your state department of motor vehicles, in other to issue you a dealer license. Depending on the state where your business is located and what kind of dealership or business you plan to operate. You will need to apply for one of these bonds. Most dealers will only need one of the following:
Used Car Dealer Bond
Wholesale Dealer Bond
Motorcycle Dealer Bond
RV Dealer Bond
Both new and used car dealers in most states are required to file a surety bond before they can get their license and open their business. They must also maintain this bond on file as long as they are in business, which means they must renew this bond yearly or according to the renewal terms of the bond. Most surety companies will only provide a one year bond term. Some companies will give you a multi-year term, this is rare since your credit can change from year to year. If the multi-year option is available for you, it is good to take advantage of it.
