What is an Oklahoma Used Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond?

The Oklahoma Used Motor Vehicle & Parts Commission requires anyone seeking to operate a used motor vehicle dealership in the state to obtain an Oklahoma Used Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond (commonly referred to as an MVD Bond) as part of the licensing process.

Oklahoma auto dealer bonds function similarly to other surety bonds in that they are a contractual agreement between the obligee, the principal, and the surety company. The obligee is the entity that requires the bond, while the principal refers to the business or individual that needs the bond. The surety company, or surety, is the business that issues and backs the bond.

The surety assures the obligee (Oklahoma Used Motor Vehicle & Parts Commission) that the principal (the used vehicle dealer) will abide by all state laws and licensing regulations. In the event that an individual files a claim for injury or loss against the principal’s bond, the surety provides compensation to the affected individual up to the bond amount, following an investigation to determine the validity of the claim. Valid claims may result from the sale of stolen vehicles, deceptive practices, fraud, and negligence.

If a claim is proven valid and the claimant is compensated by the surety, it is the principal's responsibility to reimburse the surety for any claims paid out, plus additional fees and expenses incurred by the surety during the investigation of the claim. Accordingly, the principal is bound by the bond to comply with all regulations. For more information on surety bonds and how they work, check our detailed guide here.

Who Has to Get an OK Used MVD Bond?

Retail and wholesale used motor vehicle dealers applying for a dealer license must obtain the Oklahoma Used Motor Vehicle Dealer Bond. Dealers of new motor vehicles are exempt from this requirement.

Oklahoma auto dealer licenses are valid for two years, expiring at the end of the second calendar year - i.e., December 31. Regardless of when you obtain your license, it will expire the following odd-numbered year. Therefore, if you obtain a license in 2023 or 2024, it will expire in 2025. Renewal applications are expected to be submitted by November 1 of the year that the license is set to expire.

How Much Does This Bond Cost?

Oklahoma used motor vehicle dealers must post a bond amount of $25,000. Fortunately, a small percentage of this amount, called the premium, is all that is required to obtain the bond. Various factors contribute to the premium rate, including the applicant’s credit score (via a soft credit check), industry experience, and overall financial standing.

If you have optimal credit, rates may start as low as 1% of the bond amount. Even if you have nonstandard credit, we encourage you to apply for your bond. At EZ Surety Bonds, we work with a variety of sureties to find you the best quote available.
