What is a Kentucky Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond?

All motor vehicle dealers are required by the Kentucky Motor Vehicle Commission to post a dealer surety bond to satisfy licensing requirements and assure the public and others that the dealer will operate according to licensing laws and statutes. The bond amount the state requires is determined by the dealer’s estimated annual volume of vehicle sales. However, the minimum bond amount can’t be lower than $15,000. It is important that dealers applying for a bond calculate their sales volume to determine the required bond amount before applying for a bond.
