Popular Surety Bonds in Connecticut

BondExchange provides complete, comprehensive access to every surety bond that the state of Connecticut, and its specific municipalities, require for businesses. Agents can use our comprehensive platform to source the surety bonds required by clients, provide instant online quotes to those clients, and offer online solutions with zero investment in technology. It’s all just a few clicks away through the BondExchange platform. Here are just a few of the types of surety bonds Connecticut businesses may need:

Tax Bonds

The Connecticut Department of Revenue requires several businesses to provide a bond in order to operate in the state. These include cigarette distributors, alcohol manufacturers, non-resident contractors, and fuel distributors.

Motor Vehicle Dealer, Registration and Repairer Bonds

Motor vehicle dealers, body shops, registration issuers, and repair service providers all require specific licensing and surety bonds in Connecticut. The bond amounts depend based on the type of license needed, but most auto dealers need a $50,000 bond.

Financial Services Bonds

Providing financial services in Connecticut can require taking out surety bonds. Acting as a debt adjuster or negotiator, mortgage broker or lender, or money transmission licensee all require separate surety bonds in The Constitution State.

Pawnbroking License Bonds

Businesses who wish to operate as a pawnbroker or a secondhand dealer need to be bonded with the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.

Private Education Bonds

Providing private education in Connecticut requires surety bonds. There are separate bond requirements for not just private occupational schools but also private specialty schools for driver training as well.

Highway and Encroachment Permit Bonds

The Department of Transportation requires contractors and trucking companies that may disrupt traffic or damage public highways to protect the public. For trucking companies, these are known as oversize/overweight bonds. For contractors performing work in the right of way, the DOT requires a permit bond, or what’s called a major traffic generator bond for larger projects.
