Florida Motor Vehicle Dealers




Auto dealers in Florida are regulated by the state’s Division of Motor Vehicles.

The $25,000 surety bond required of Florida motor vehicle dealers is specifically mandated by Title XXIII, Chapter 320 of the state’s legal code.




Florida Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond: Purpose of this Bond




The purpose of the $25,000 Florida motor vehicle dealer bond is to act as a financial guarantee that ensures that a motor vehicle dealer will abide by all Florida state and federal rules involved as an auto dealer.

More specifically, and besides being a prerequisite for licensing, the bond protects others from illegal, fraudulent, and other criminal acts which a licensed auto dealer, dealership, or employees may commit in relation to their professional duties.

You may think of this surety bond as a sort of insurance policy that a dealership is required to maintain — but as one which only protects others; it is not insurance for the motor vehicle dealer and affords the buyer no protection.

The Division of Motor Vehicles is also the obligee for this surety bond.

That is, the Department is the entity which requires this bond as a condition for licensing.




Florida Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond: Duration




The Florida motor vehicle dealer bond is active from May 1st, through April 30th.

This surety bond renews on an annual basis.




Florida Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond: The Cost or Premium




The price an applicant will pay for the Florida motor vehicle dealer bond will be determined by the application and credit score.

You may pay as little as just over one percent, or slightly over $250 for this bond; however, the amount any individual will be required to pay will vary.

If your scores are poorer, realistically you may pay substantially more.

In all cases, however, AmeriPro Surety Bonds will work to find the best surety bond pricing.
