What is a Wyoming vehicle dealer bond?
Wyoming Legislative Statute 31-16-103 requires individuals file a $25,000 surety bond to get a motor vehicle dealer license in the state. This bond type prohibits dealers from committing fraud, misrepresentation, or violating any other relevant federal or state laws, rules, or regulations when operating their business.
