What is an Iowa Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond?

Motor vehicle dealer bonds in the state of Iowa are a mandatory requirement prior to conducting business. This auto dealer bond, similar to other surety bonds, acts as an agreement between three separate parties the vehicle dealer (principal), the Iowa Department of Motor Vehicles (obligee), and the surety company. Posting a surety bond is to protect the buyer, not the business. If a consumer is wronged by the business due to illegal business activity they can make a claim against the dealer’s surety bond.
