The Georgia Board of Used Motor Vehicle Parts requires all used auto parts dealers to be licensed and bonded. A used parts dealer is described as any business that is buying, selling, or using used motor vehicle parts or accessories. You are required to be licensed if you partake in one or more of the following businesses: motor vehicle parts dealer, motor vehicle dismantler, motor vehicle salvage dealer, or motor vehicle rebuilder.
Please note this page is for parts dealer licensing. If you are a used motor vehicle dealer, you need a Georgia Used Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond. If you have lost or need to obtain a vehicle title, a Georgia Certificate of Title Bond is required.

Why do I need a used auto parts dealer bond?
The Georgia State Board of Registration requires all used auto parts dealers to be bonded to assure that their clients have financial security if the dealer partakes in unethical activities. By obtaining a used car parts dealer bond, the dealer is agreeing to take financial responsibility for all losses, damages, and expenses that may be sustained by any purchaser of a used motor vehicle part. The bond ensures that dealers conduct business ethically and in accordance with the laws of the state of Georgia.
