The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles requires authorized vehicle and fleet inspection stations that are in the business of emission testing and/or repairs to obtain a $1,000 Emissions Inspection Station Bond.
Jet Insurance Company provides the Emissions Inspection Station Bond as an assurance to the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) that the authorized inspection station will abide by the regulations of their license. The surety bond is a guarantee of reimbursement for the DMV and any person that is damaged if the licensee commits a license violation leading to financial loss.
The cost of the $1,000 Emissions Inspection Bond is $100 annually or $10 monthly, guaranteed. Take a look at the chart below for all of your pricing options.
Our monthly payment plan is a convenient option for inspection station owners looking to keep their license in good standing with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles! Simply set up your preferred account for payments and your bond will remain active until official cancelation is sought.

Regarding annual and multi-year bondholders, Jet will send you a renewal invoice far in advance of your bond term’s expiration date. All you need to do is complete payment and your Emissions Inspection Station Bond will be in good standing for your annual license renewal with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles.
Monthly payment bondholders don’t have to worry about renewing their Emissions Inspection Station Bond as it will remain active as long as payments are made or cancellation is officially requested.
As for cancellations of the Emissions Inspection Station Bond, you can request to do so at any time with Jet. Just send us a cancellation request to [email protected] and we will begin the process. Termination notice by certified mail must be sent by Jet to the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles. Once received and accepted, the liability of your bond will be released within 30 days.
If you are participating in our monthly bond plan, your last payment will be required for that 30-day period as your bond is technically still active. Payments will cease as soon as this step has been completed. For bondholders who have a multi-year plan with Jet and are cancelling early, we will review your account for any unused premium, and if available, a refund will be issued once the 30-day grace period has officially ended.
Claims can easily be avoided by following license regulations put in place pursuant to the Nevada Revised Statutes Chapters 445A, 445B, and 598, as well as Chapters 445B.400 and 445B.735 of the Nevada Administrative Code. These regulations are quite intensive, therefore a thorough review of them is highly recommended.
Nevada authorized inspection stations (test only), inspection stations (test and repair), and fleet stations that commit license violations may face penalties such as large fines, the suspension or revocation of their license, misdemeanor charges, and/or a bond claim.
Emissions Inspection Station Bond claims typically occur if the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles finds that the station owner or their employees has fraudulently requested a repair of a vehicle to comply with pollution control, issued counterfeit evidence of compliance for emission levels, or possesses any unauthorized evidence of compliance regarding emission levels and pollution control. The DMV and any other party (such as the vehicle owner) that has faced damages due to the license violations listed above may take civil action against the station owner. If the Nevada court rules in favor of the claimant, the Emissions Inspection Station Bond will cover all losses incurred up to the bond limit.
If Jet receives a court-ordered claim notification, we will notify you immediately and request all available details and documentation regarding your case. The Jet team will use these resources for our own investigation of the accused license violation.
Per the Vehicle Industry Business License Bond form, claims that are found to be justified must be paid out by Jet, not to exceed the $1,000 limit. You are ultimately held responsible for your own actions and the actions of your employees, and therefore must Jet back for the claim payout made on your behalf. An omission to do will result in future difficulties in obtaining surety bonds in the State of Nevada.
If an emissions inspection station offers vehicle registration services, licensees must hold a $10,000 Nevada Vehicle Registration Program Bond.
