Motor vehicle dealers and designated agents in Alabama need to purchase a $25,000 surety bond and file it with the Department of Revenue Motor Vehicle Division.

Notary Public Bonds

Individuals wishing to become a commissioned notary must file a $25,000 notary bond with the Secretary of State. The bond must remain in effect for the four-year term of the commission. While the bond protects the public from unlawful acts of the notary, BondExchange also offers notary E&O coverage to protect the notary from loss due to lawful errors and omissions.

Private School Performance Bonds

Alabama requires driving schools, cosmetology schools, real estate schools, and both degree-granting and non-degree-granting private schools within the state to purchase performance bonds of up to $50,000.

Motor Fuel Bonds

Businesses that supply, import, export, distribute, blend motor fuels or operate motor fuel terminals all require separate bonding from the State of Alabama Department of Revenue Business & License Tax Division.
