Why do New Jersey used car dealers need a surety bond?

New Jersey used car dealers are required by the Motor Vehicle Commission to have a $10,000 bond prior to receiving a license.

Used motor dealer bonds ensure that the principal (used motor vehicle dealer) complies with all laws concerning the sale of used vehicles. Principals must also adhere to all rules and regulations established by N.J.A.C. 13:21-15.1 as they pertain to automobile dealers. If a principal violates the terms of the bond agreement and consumers suffer financial losses, the surety will compensate the harmed parties up to the full $10,000 bond amount. The principal is then ultimately responsible for reimbursing the surety for any claims paid out.
