Nebraska Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond

How much does an auto dealer bond cost in Nebraska?

The Nebraska Motor Vehicle Industry Licensing Board requires auto dealers in the state to post a $50,000 surety bond. These bonds are subject to underwriting, which means the amount a client will pay for this bond is contingent on their personal credit report. With a strong credit report, clients can expect to pay just 1-3% of the $50,000 bond amount.
