South Dakota Auto Dealer Bond

South Dakota Auto Dealer Bond

Those looking to conduct business as an auto dealer in South Dakota must have a South Dakota Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond. These surety bonds are an important part of the auto dealer licensing process because they help the state ensure that its citizens are protected if an auto dealer does not adhere to state laws, rules, and regulations as set forth by South Dakota state legal statutes.

By providing a path for recourse for the citizen in the event of financial loss, surety bonds like these provide peace-of-mind for all parties involved.

How Much do Auto Dealer Bonds Cost in South Dakota?

The premium on an auto dealer bond can vary based on a multitude of factors. As such, there is no set fee for a motor vehicle dealer bond. Credit score, bonding history, and other aspects of your business may come into consideration to determine the likelihood of a claim being made, which in turn can affect your premium. If you have less-than-perfect credit, don't worry, as we also offer a poor credit surety bond program. No matter what your situation is, Viking Bond Service is committed to providing you with the surety solutions you need at the lowest possible rate. Overall, auto dealer surety bond quotes typically fall within 1% to 5% of the required bond amount depending on the strengths of the individual applications.

How to Get an Auto Dealer Bond in South Dakota

There are three parties involved in the auto dealer bond process: the principal (the aspiring auto dealer), the party that requires the bond (the state of South Dakota), and the surety that underwrites the bond (Viking Bond Service). The surety is responsible for helping resolve any disputes that may come up. The three parties work together to gain confidence in the services offered by the principal.
