What does a Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond Protect Against?

The surety bond protects any individual who is injured by the actions of the bonded principal, its employees or its agents. Specifically, any act of fraud or fraudulent representation, or violation of Chapter 482 or Chapter 490 of the Nevada Revised Statutes or the Nevada Administrative Code committed by the principal and resulting in damages to a third party may constitute a valid claim against the bond. Total liability to the surety company and the principal is limited to the aggregate amount of the bond. The surety bond is continuous in nature unless canceled by the surety company by providing 30 days advance written notice to the State of Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles.
