How does a California Motor Club Bond work?

A California Motor Club Bond is a legal assurance provided by two parties to another party. The two parties being the principal (motor club) and the surety or the surety bond company who will issue the bond. The obligee is the party who is requiring the assurance. The obligee will also be the beneficiary of this bond. In this case, the obligee will be the State of California. As long as the principal fulfills all his contractual obligations, no action will be taken against the bond. If the opposite happens and the principal commits a violation or misconduct, the obligee will file a bond claim. The principal must repay the surety once the surety has settled the claim.
