Comprehensive Missouri Surety Bond Library

BondExchange provides its agents with complete, comprehensive access to every surety bond in The Show Me State. BondExchange has been quoting and issuing bonds for insurance agents for more than 40 years, compiling a database of more than 10,000 different bonds across the country. Our database facilitates the accurate and fast processing needed to make surety bonds a profitable venture for your agency. Below are some of the most common surety bonds your Missouri customers may need:

Notary Public Bonds

Individuals wishing to become a commissioned notary must file a $10,000 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.

Well Drilling Bonds

Missouri requires a number of different contractor bonds across a variety of well drilling or excavation activities. Heat pump wells, monitoring wells, or water wells cannot be drilled without the drilling contractor first registering a surety bond with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

Motor Vehicle Dealer Bonds

Motor vehicle dealers and boat dealers in Missouri need to purchase either a $50,000 or a $100,000 surety bond and file it with the Missouri Department of Revenue before being licensed to sell vehicles in the state.

Vice Tax Bonds

Missouri requires a number of “vice” tax surety bonds from businesses that sell cigarettes, intoxicating and non-intoxicating alcohol, and lottery tickets. These bonds ensure that the businesses selling these products collect and remit the proper taxes back to the state.

Motor Fuel Tax Bonds

Businesses that supply, distribute, transport motor fuels, or operate motor fuel terminals in Missouri all require separate bonding from the state’s Department of Revenue.

City or County Bonds

There are many cities and counties within Missouri that require specific surety bonds for a number of different licenses. Just a few of these occupational licenses include new and used car dealers, electrical contractors, plumbers, lawn irrigation and landscaping installers, and demolition companies.
