What Does a Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond Protect Against?

The surety bond provides a guarantee to the state that the principal will comply with the provisions of any state or federal law or regulation governing business conduct. Any party sustaining a loss due to acts of the licensee including omissions or other acts constituting reason for suspension or revocation of the license may seek indemnity for such loss. The surety company may cancel the bond by providing 30 days written notice to the state.
