The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles requires wholesale vehicle dealers to post a surety bond as part of the licensing process in order to become or remain, registered under Section 415 of the NY State Vehicle and Traffic Law. A New York Motor Vehicle Wholesaler Surety Bond guarantees that the principal (wholesaler) complies with all applicable state regulations and provides protection for purchasers, sellers, financing agencies or governmental agencies from monetary loss if the principal engages in any fraudulent or unlawful acts. If a harmed party suffers a loss, a claim can be filed against the bond. If the claim is valid, the surety company will pay out up to the penal sum of the bond to resolve the claim. All monies paid out, including attorney fees, must be reimbursed by the principal to the surety company.
