Nevada DMV vehicle transporters are persons or businesses who transport vehicles in which the persons or company has no ownership interest.
The vehicles are required to be registered and they are individually operable.
The following are included in the requirements to be licensed as a Nevada DMV transporter:
A garage or commercial liability policy which includes the following wording:
“Any auto (symbol 21 for Garage Liability or symbol 1 for Commercial Auto), CSL of at least $55,000 per accident or bodily injury $15,000 per person, bodily injury $30,000 per accident, property damage $10,000.
Hired and non-owned autos (symbols 28 and 29 and 30 or symbols 8 and 9 for Commercial Auto), CSL of at least $55,000 per accident or bodily injury $15,000 per person, bodily injury $30,000 per accident, property damage $10,000.”
The Nevada $100,000 DMV transporter surety bond is required by the Occupational Business and Licensing Division (they are the obligee for this surety bond) before a vehicle transporter license will be issued.
This bond guarantees that all laws will be complied with in the transporting of vehicles, and that no criminal or fraudulent acts will be committed.
It is important to note that this surety bond protects the interests of the DMV and any consumers, not the DMV transporter.
While the face amount of this surety bond required is $100,000, applicants will only pay a small percentage of that amount.
Applicants with optimal credit scores may pay anywhere between 1-3% of the bond price.
Applicants with poorer credit histories will be able to obtain this surety bond as well; however, such applicants should be prepared to pay a higher bond premium.
We also provide surety bond services for all 50 states.
