What is an Arizona motor vehicle certificate of title bond? 

Arizona Revised Statutes Title 28 Section 2057 requires individuals with insufficient vehicle ownership evidence file a surety bond. These bonds protect previous owners and lien holders as well as potential purchasers in the future. By filing this bond, the current vehicle owner verifies that, to their knowledge, they are the vehicle's sole owner.

If the original title is provided by somebody other than the bonded title vehicle owner, a claim can be filed against the bond. The surety company will pay valid claims up to the full bond amount, and then the bonded principal must reimburse the surety company.

Arizona vehicle title bonds are required to register vehicles with missing titles. If you plan to sell vehicles in Arizona, you can learn more about Arizona Motor Vehicle Dealer Bonds here.
