Why do I need an Oklahoma auto dealer bond?
By posting a used auto dealer or wholesale motor vehicle dealer bond in Oklahoma, principals (auto dealers) pledge to conduct business without making fraudulent representations or violating any provisions of the Oklahoma Used Motor Vehicle Dealer Laws. If the principal fails to comply with these terms, the bond protects any person, whether a consumer, a used motor vehicle dealer, or a used motor auction, from financial loss suffered as a result of the principal’s unlawful business practices up to the full penal sum of the bond.
