Motor vehicle dealers are required to post a Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond as part of the process to license the dealership. The amount of the bond depends on what type of vehicles are to be sold, the amount of vehicles you plan to sell, and other factors.

This bond guarantees the principal will abide by all Nebraska state laws and regulations along with all laws outlined in the Nevada Revised Statutes.
The price for the bond, also known as the bond premium, is only a small fraction of the bond amount.
The applicant should verify the bond amount with the obligee before applying for the bond to ensure the bond amount is correct.
This bond expires annually on December 31st. The bond must be renewed annually in order for it to remain valid. This is a requirement of the obligee, not the surety company.
If the bond is cancelled, a written notice of cancellation must be submitted to the obligee at least 60 days before the cancellation date.
