Nevada Vehicle Transporter Surety Bond



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.



Cost of the Nevada DMV Transporter Surety Bond



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.
