Licensing of D.C. Tow Truck Businesses
The Washington D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs is the licensing authority for tow truck businesses.
In addition to fees, taxes, providing a criminal history, and meeting other requirements as outlined by the Department, you are also required to obtain a $25,000 surety bond.
Qualifying and the Premium
You and your tow truck company are automatically approved for the $25,000 Washington D.C. tow truck business bond. This is because there is no credit inquiry. The bond’s premium is $250, annually.
Issuing your bond takes a few minutes.
When you call us, we’ll just ask you the following:
- The name of your tow truck business, exactly as it should appear on your surety bond, along with your business address, phone number and email.
- Then we’ll need the name of the owner or partner, as this appears on your bond.
- After payment of the $250 premium, our agency issues you two documents. Your surety bond and a Power of Attorney form. Upon receipt, you’ll sign and have witnessed your bond as Principal.
The address to file all documents received from us is:
District of Columbia Government
Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs
1100 4th Street, SW
Washington D.C. 20024
Premium Prepayment Options
You may prepay the surety bond premium up to 3 years through our agency. Premium prepayment lengthens the time between renewals and offers you a savings over annual renewals.
The premium prepayment option and savings are as follows:
- If prepaid for 2 years, the premium is $450, a $50 savings;
- If prepaid for 3 years, the premium is $650, a $100 savings.
Purpose of Your Surety Bond Requirement
Your tow truck surety bond serves as a financial guarantee of your compliance with DC Section 47-2850.01, as amended.
The bond is more generally a financial guarantee of your compliance with all laws and serves as financial protection for any person who is harmed by the failure to follow laws governing tow truck operations.
