What’s the fine print?

New Hampshire vehicle dealer bonds remain valid for a 1-year term, expiring on the date listed on the bond form. However, the bond can be continued year-to-year with a continuation certificate.

The surety can cancel the bond at any time by giving written cancellation notice to the Director of the Division of Motor Vehicles and the dealer 60 days prior to such cancellation.

Applicants should be prepared to disclose what type of vehicles they sell, as most surety underwriting companies require this information to produce these bonds.
