are sometimes required
by the board or equalization )

the car dealer bond is not
used car dealer insurance

the car dealer bond is a guarantee
but not coverage for claims

used car dealer insurance is
coverage for claims
as outlined in each
car dealer policy

some dealers make presentation to
law enforcement
representing their

insurance requirements
with their car dealer bond

the legality of this use
of the car dealer bond
is a matter of dispute among
car dealer attorney experts

sourcing the car dealer bond provider
of any licensed car dealer
involves sourcing the
dmv car dealer database
and contacting the
dmv occupational licensing

sometimes a
dmv complaint form
is necessary to source the
car dealer bond
held by a licensed car dealer
