Nevada Body Shop Bond

Nevada body shops are regulated by the Occupational License department of the Nevada DMV and are required to post a $10,000 surety bond.

Nevada Body Shops



The Nevada state legislature formally defines a Nevada body shop as, “…any place where the body of a motor vehicle is painted, fixed, repaired or replaced for compensation.” NRS 487.352

Nevada body shops fall under the direct jurisdiction of the Occupational License Division of the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles.



Starting a Nevada Body Shop Business:  Requirements


Starting a business, especially one that requires state licensing and approval, may seem to be a daunting task.

However, such requirements must be met to satisfy and comply with state laws, care of the environment (if this is applicable); and, importantly, the protection of the consumer public.

Among other requirements not listed here, a person founding a Nevada body shop must do the following:

  • Application for a Nevada Department of Motor Vehicle occupational business license;
  • A $301 application fee to the Department. This fee is non-refundable;
  • For first-time applicants, submission of fingerprints. These fingerprints are forwarded to the FBI and Central Repository Recovery for Nevada Criminal Records.  There is a non-refundable fee associated with this for $36.25.


The Place of Business for a Nevada Body shop:


As undoubtedly thought, a Nevada body shop will maintain regulations and restrictions as to where business can be conducted.  These rules, though not necessarily, all encompassing, include the following:

  • The place of business must be within Nevada;
  • The building must have a permanent enclosure;
  • The place of business must have a sign which is permanently fixed, is at least 8 inches high and at least 1 inch wide. In addition to this, the sign must be visible from the center of the nearest highway.

Finally, in addition to the above, Nevada body shops and Nevada garages are required to post a $10,000 surety bond.


Nevada Body Shop Bond


The $10,000 surety bond for Nevada body shops is required by the Occupational Division of the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles before a body shop license will be issued.

This bond protects the consumer from acts of fraud, negligence, or criminal malfeasance which may be committed by the Nevada body shop.

This surety bond, therefore, does not protect the Nevada body shop at all.

The bond may be more correctly thought of as a type of insurance that a body shop is required to purchase on behalf of the public and the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles.


Cost of a Nevada Body Shop Bond:


Though the bond is for $10,000, applicants will only pay a small fraction of this amount.

The amount of the bond will be determined entirely by the applicant’s credit score.

Applicants with stellar credit may pay as little as just above $100 for this bond.

Applicants with poorer credit history, depending on their credit files, may pay substantially more.
