Applying for a motor vehicle dealer license for the first time has a different process than dealers who have been licensed before. There are several things to be completed prior to turning in your application.
Claims arise for various reasons, all that relate to the dealer acting in fraudulent ways. Failure to report a sale, tampering with an odometer, and financial fraud are just a few of the reasons someone may file a claim against an auto dealer bond.
Claims can be brought on by customers or the state in which the dealership is licensed to do business in. By following state and federal laws, documenting everything, and acting ethically, the dealer can be confident a legitimate claim will not be filed against their surety bond.
