Why do I need this bond?

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 promulgated in N.J.S.A. 56:8-1 et seq. 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 bond amount. The principal is ultimately responsible for reimbursing the surety.
