Motor Vehicle Bonds

Utah motor vehicle dealers must file a $75,000 surety bond with the Motor Vehicle Enforcement Division to become licensed in Utah. Other motor vehicle-related businesses like motorcycle/ATV dealers, body shops, and crushers must also post a bond ranging from $10,000 to $75,000.

Financial Services Bonds

As a prerequisite to providing financial services in Utah, many businesses must purchase a surety bond. These businesses include escrow services, investment brokers or advisors, or debt management servicers.

Notary Public Bonds

Utah requires notaries to obtain a $5,000 surety bond in order to operate in the state. The bond runs for a 4-year term in conjunction with the license.

Contractor’s License Bonds

Contractors in Utah must demonstrate “financial responsibility” before the issuance or renewal of a license. If the contractor cannot provide sufficient proof to the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL), the contractor can purchase a surety bond in an amount determined by the DOPL.

Fish and Game License Vendors

Utah boasts some of the most breathtaking outdoor recreation opportunities in the United States. Adventurers wishing to hunt or fish in the state must obtain a license to participate in these activities. The Division of Wildlife Resources utilizes vendors to sell fishing and game licenses to the public and requires these vendors to obtain a $5,000 bond to ensure the state will receive the license fees.

Miscellaneous Business Bonds

A number of businesses in Utah require surety bond coverage. They include licensed private investigators, professional fundraisers, auctioneers, livestock weighing, and mineral rights leasing.
