An Oregon MVD Bond is a type of surety bond required by the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). This bond guarantees that a car dealer will comply with all applicable state laws, regulations, and requirements. The bond amount varies depending on the type of dealership, the number of vehicles sold, and the length of time the dealership has been in business. The bond must be obtained from an authorized surety company, and must remain in full force and effect in order for the dealership to remain in good standing with the DMV. Failure to comply with the regulations can result in the revocation of the dealership’s license, or other penalties. The bond serves as a guarantee that the dealership will adhere to all applicable laws and regulations, and will protect consumers from any potential losses incurred as a result of the dealership’s failure to do so.
