Texas Auto Dealer Bonds Explained:

What parties are involved in an auto dealer bond?

  • The principle: this is the Texas based auto dealer
  • The obligee: for Texas auto dealer bonds this is the state
  • The surety: the underwriter of the bond

Who needs an auto dealer bond in Texas?

Texas has strict rules when it comes to licensing used car dealers in the state. One of these rules is that all dealers, unless they are franchised, must buy and maintain an auto dealer bond. If you are looking to become an auto dealer or you’re already a licensed motor vehicle dealer you need a Texas motor vehicle dealer bond.

How are Texas auto dealer bonds obtained?

Auto dealer bonds in Texas are obtained through a bonding company like Viking Bond Service. All applicants must complete an application form and supply the required supporting documentation. The supporting documents may include your businesses financials, resume, and credit score. The bonding company will supply a premium quote and once the premium is paid and all paperwork is signed, you will be provided with the auto dealer bond.

How much will a Texas auto dealer bond cost?

The cost of the bond is calculated based on the bond amount (which in Texas is $25,000) and the deemed risk of the bond. The bonding company will assess how likely it is that a claim will be placed against the bond based on the supporting paperwork you submit with your application. This means that applicants with higher credit scores, stable financials, and stronger business resumes will receive lower quotes. Even if your credit score is low Viking Bond Service can still help you to secure a Texas motor vehicle surety bond.
