Why do I need this bond?
By posting a Wyoming vehicle dealer bond, principals (vehicle dealers) pledge to conduct business ethically and lawfully. Specifically, these bonds guarantee that principals will return the dealer’s license, full use and demo license plates and temporary permits issued. Unlawful acts covered by this bond include:
- knowingly publishing any misleading advertising materials
- selling, purchasing or acquiring stolen vehicles
- failing to keep an established place of business
- selling any imported vehicle that doesn’t meet United States standards
If the principal fails to uphold the terms of the surety bond agreement, the bond protects the state or any person from resulting financial loss up to the full amount of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
