Utah Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond

Bond Requirements and Online Application

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. Read our Car Dealer License Guide to learn more about how to get your dealership licensed and bonded.

Surety Bond

  • Required by: Utah Motor Vehicle Enforcement Division
  • Minimum Bond Amount: $10,000 (motorcycle or small trailer)
  • Maximum Bond Amount: $75,000 (new and used vehicle, large trailer)
  • Valid: Renewable

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

This bond guarantees the principal will abide by all Utah state laws and regulations along with provisions in the  Motor Vehicle Business Regulation Act as provided by Chapter 3, Title 41 of the Utah Code Annotated.

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