The Department of Motor Vehicles of the State of California – in pursuance of Section 11301 of the California Vehicle Code – requires all motor vehicle verifiers to obtain this bond.

How does a California Motor Vehicle Verifier Bond work?

This bond will serve as a legal agreement among 3 parties:

Principal – motor vehicle verifier license applicant

Obligee – People of the State of California

Surety – the party who will issue the bond

The Principal and the Surety will partner in assuring the performance of the Principal to the Obligee. The Principal is primarily responsible for the fulfillment of the obligations required by the Obligee. If the Principal fails to do any of the bonded obligations required by the relevant laws, rules, and regulations, the Obligee can file a bond claim.

The claim will first be verified by the Surety before it is settled. Once the Surety has settled the claim, the Principal will reimburse the Surety for the payments made.
