Missouri Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond

About the Missouri Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond

  • Required by: Missouri Department of Revenue
  • Minimum Bond Amount: $50,000
  • Maximum Bond Amount: Varies
  • Valid: Continuous – Renewable

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

Since this bond is continuous, it remains in full force and effect until cancelled. If the bond is cancelled, a written notice of cancellation must be submitted to the Missouri Department of Revenue. Bond cancellation comes into effect 30 days after the Department receives the cancellation notice.

This bond guarantees the principal will abide by all Missouri state laws and regulations.

Vehicle dealers that must be bonded include: power sport dealers , trailer dealers, new motor vehicle franchised dealers, boat dealers, wholesale motor vehicle dealers, and used motor vehicle dealers.

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