Arkansas adds surety bond requirement for low-speed recreational vehicle owners


Arkansas SB 934 was passed in April and made changes to the Arkansas Motor Vehicle Commission Act by revising and adding surety requirements to a variety of vehicles. Like motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and other recreational vehicle owners, owners of low-speed vehicles will be required to file a $25,000 surety bond in order to hold a license.

This legislative change also adjusted the surety requirement for recreational vehicle dealers. Each dealer will have to post a $50,000 bond to conduct business in the state. If a dealer owns multiple auto dealer locations, an additional $25,000 bond must be posted for each location.
