Under Delaware law, businesses need to secure a $25,000 surety bond and file it with the state’s Division of Revenue before being able to operate as a motor vehicle dealer.

Aquaculture Bonds

Delaware’s location on the Mid-Atlantic Coast makes it a hotbed for shellfish-related businesses. The Division of Fish & Wildlife regulates these activities, requiring businesses for shellfish aquaculture to purchase bonds before licensing them.

Private Education Bonds

The Delaware Department of Education requires private educational institutions to purchase surety bonds so that students can be compensated for lost tuition if the school goes out of business. These include both private trade schools and private business schools.

Construction Licensing Bonds

In many different municipalities around the state, construction companies need to hold surety bonds for general contracting, renovation, HVAC subcontracting, plumbing, and other related activities. The licenses are regulated at the local level and must be filed with the applicable city, township, or county. New Castle County and the City of Newark are the two most common municipalities requiring contractor license bonds.

Private Investigative or Security Bonds
