Alaska Motor Vehicle Dealer Buyer’s Agent Surety Bond Details

  • Required by: Alaska Commissioner of Administration
  • Minimum Bond Amount: $25,000
  • Maximum Bond Amount: $50,000
  • Valid: Renewable

Dealers that only sell motorcycles must file a $25,000 surety bond while all other vehicle dealers must file a $50,000 surety bond.

The price for the bond, also known as the bond premium, is only a small fraction of the bond amount.

The bond guarantees that the principal will abide by all Alaska state laws and regulations outlined in the provisions of AS 08.66.

The bond remains in full force and effect until it is cancelled. If it is cancelled, the principal must submit a notice of cancellation to the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles in Anchorage Alaska.

The applicant should verify the bond amount with the obligee before applying for the bond to ensure the bond amount is correct.
