Why do I need this bond?

Virginia motor vehicle dealer surety bonds ensure that principals (auto dealers) conduct business according to the provisions of Chapter 15, Title 46.2 of the Virginia Code. Specifically, the bond protects any person who suffers financial loss as a result of the principal’s or the principal’s employees’ unethical and unlawful business practices.

What’s the fine print?

MVD bonds in Virginia remain in full force and effect until violated by the principal or canceled by the surety. The surety can cancel the bond at any time by giving written notice to the Motor Vehicle Dealer Board 30 days prior to the effective date of termination.

The bond does not automatically expire with the dealer’s license, but instead continues indefinitely from license term to license term.
