car dealer bond FAQ

Car Dealer Bond Vital Info…

Retail Auto Dealer Bond

What is a dealer bond?

The car dealer bond protects your customers against fraudulent or unethical actions by a dealer.

The bond assures the dealer is financially secure in cases where a customer is cheated by a dealer.

The DMV and flooring company can also make claims against this dealer bond.

Can I make a down payment and then pay monthly for the dealer bond?

Absolutely!

 www.cardealerbondnow.com

for the best rates on a retail or wholesale car dealer bond

and ask about our 30% down payment option.

All surety bond carriers ask for payment of the bond in full,

however

Your Car Dealer Bond

has set up a financing program to give

California dealers access to a payment plan for their DMV bond.

 

The DMV needs the OL-25 form signed – what is this and where do I get it?

The OL 25 is your surety dealer bond.

The original bond that will be sent from your bond carrier will meet this requirement.

How long does it take to receive the initial dealer bond quote?

Approximately 24 hours, unless your FICO score is below 650.

Then the process usually takes 2 days.

How long does it take to receive the originally-signed dealer bond needed to obtain my license?

From the time we receive your payment,

it’s typically a week to 10 days before your receive your bond in hand depending on where you are located in the country.

We’ve invested in check-by-fax and check-by-email to help expedite our service.

What if I have had some credit issues (bankruptcies, short-sales, foreclosures, etc.)

Most dealers these days have encountered credit issues of some sort.

We have the most competitive surety carriers for all credit levels so no worries if your credit is less than perfect!

I started with a $10,000 bond because I am a wholesale dealer and thought I would sell 24 vehicles or less per year.

Will the surety company increase the limit of my bond from $10,000 to $50,000 for additional premium

if I will sell 25 or more cars or I want to retail or auto broker?

Unfortunately not.

Once your DMV inspector accepts your bond and issues your dealer license, the surety company will not make any refunds whatsoever.

The $10,000 bond would have to be canceled and a $50,000 bond would need to be written without a credit or refund.

Can I pay with a credit card?

You sure can.

For your convenience, we accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.

A standard convenience charge of 5% will be applied.

While we hope you don’t need to incur this additional expense, some of our customers have found this option extremely helpful.

More Important Info about Your Car Dealer Bond…

RIDER Process: needing a rider can be very frustrating if it’s only needed because your app was incomplete or something was incorrect. One of most common reasons for a rider that we see is the dealer forgot to put his middle name on the app. The cost is $100 and having to go through this process will add on 2 – 3 weeks to the time before you can be licensed. We are here to help and would rather spend 10 minutes answering your questions to provide you with the best possible experience with respects to your bond acquisition.

The two (2) most time-consuming steps of the car dealer licensing process are:

  • getting the LiveScan fingerprints into the Department of Justice system. This takes about 45 days and costs about $70; and
  • forming a corp. or LLC (if applicable). This also takes about 45 – 60 days, although the Secretary of State offers an expedited service for about $375 vs. about $100.

retro license plates may make a revival

Retro license plate proposal on the move

California lawmakers can’t roll back gas prices or revive eight-track tape players, but they soon may offer motorists something else from decades past: replica license plates.

Assembly Bill 1658 would allow the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue plates resembling those of the 1950s, through ’80s for a fee – $50 initially, $40 per year – to cover administrative costs and raise money for environmental projects.

Assemblyman Mike Gatto, a Los Angeles Democrat who proposed the bill, said it capitalizes on nostalgia and recent production of retro-style vehicles. “What’s old is new,” he says, “and it might make the state a little money, too.”

Plates would not be issued by the DMV until 7,500 had been ordered by the public. They would come in three classic designs, with black lettering on a yellow background, or yellow lettering on either a black or blue background.

The new plates would not be exact reproductions, however. Current plates have seven digits, for example, while those of decades past had six. Reflectivity and font-type standards also have changed through the decades.

AB 1658 received bipartisan support in the Assembly Transportation Committee, 14-0, and is awaiting action in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

will ohio dealers association be able to stop tesla ???

By Dan Gearino

A trade group for Ohio car dealers is asking a Franklin County court to rescind Tesla Motors’ license to sell new cars, citing what they say are violations of Ohio law.

The plaintiffs in the case also include several central Ohio dealer groups, such as Midwestern Auto Group of Dublin, Ricart Automotive of Groveport and several of the Germain family dealerships.

“If a license is not granted with proper authority, then that license should be rescinded,” said Sara Bruce, vice president of legal affairs for the Ohio Automobile Dealers Association.

The defendants are the Ohio Department of Public Safety, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and Tesla.

In the suit, which was filed in Franklin County Common Pleas Court, the dealers say that the state agencies improperly approved Tesla’s dealer license earlier this year because the company did not provide a copy of its contract with the manufacturer of the vehicles to be sold.

In this case, the manufacturer and the retailer are the same company, but the dealers say that the law still calls for proper documentation.

Even if Tesla had provided a contract, it would not have been valid because the law requires such an agreement to be between “two separate contracting parties,” Bruce said.

Tesla did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Earlier this month, Tesla opened a store at Easton, the automaker’s first retail outlet in Ohio.

Also this month, the auto dealers association made an unsuccessful attempt to get the Ohio General Assembly to outlaw Tesla’s business model.

The lawsuit is the next step in the dealers’ attempt to stop Tesla from gaining a foothold in the state.

Unlike most auto brands, Tesla sells its all-electric cars directly to consumers through company-owned stores.

This is different from the way established auto brands sell their products. Companies such as Ford, General Motors and Honda sell through a network of independently owned dealers.

Established dealers have raised concerns that Tesla’s model is opening the door for other automakers to open company-owned stores, which they say would undermine the concept of an independent dealer network.

The dealers say they are trying to preserve a system that employs 50,000 Ohioans, while Tesla says the dealers are monopolists who are wary of real competition.

Tesla has faced similar legislative and legal battles in other states.

tesla under investigation for fire safety

US Safety Agency Opens Probe Into Tesla Fires

DETROIT November 19, 2013 (AP)
By TOM KRISHER AP Auto Writer

The U.S. government’s auto safety watchdog is investigating whether Tesla’s Model S electric car is vulnerable to fires because roadway debris can pierce the car’s underbody and battery.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which announced the probe early Tuesday, is looking into two incidents in which Model S drivers struck metal objects on highways. The objects penetrated the bottom of the car, punctured the battery and caused fires.

Both drivers were warned of a problem by the car and escaped safely.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in a blog post that he requested the NHTSA investigation. He says accident data show that the Model S is far safer than gasoline-powered cars, but the probe is needed to dispel questions the public may have about the safety of electric vehicles as a result of the fires.

But NHTSA Administrator David Strickland told reporters in Washington Tuesday that he isn’t aware of any request from Tesla. However, the agency said Tesla is cooperating in the investigation.

News of the probe didn’t hurt Tesla’s stock price. It gained $4.51, or 3.7 percent, to close at $126.09, and at one point rose to $129.

The probe affects more than 13,000 cars from the 2013 model year that were sold in the U.S. Tesla has sold about 19,000 of the cars worldwide. They start at $70,000 but often run more than $100,000.

Tesla’s batteries are mounted beneath the passenger compartment and protected by a quarter-inch-thick metal shield. Experts say that if the batteries are damaged, that can cause arcing and sparks and touch off a fire.

NHTSA, in documents posted on its website, said it opened the preliminary evaluation “to examine the potential risks associated with undercarriage strikes” on the Tesla cars. The investigation could lead to a recall, but a decision likely is months away.

Musk, who has stated previously that the Model S won’t be recalled, said Tuesday that if NHTSA discovers something “that would result in a material improvement in occupant fire safety,” Tesla will make the change on new cars, as well as existing vehicles free of charge. He said such a discovery is “unlikely.”

The low-slung Model S has a 6-inch clearance between the ground and the undercarriage. Other cars with gas engines sit lower, such as the Mercedes CLA Class at 3.9 inches and a Dodge Charger at 5 inches, according to the Edmunds.com auto website. But the Tesla automatically lowers itself about another inch at highway speeds, the company’s website said.

In his blog post, Musk wrote that Tesla has done an over-the-air software update to give the car more ground clearance at highway speeds. The change, Musk wrote, was made to cut the chances of underbody damage, not to improve safety.

“The theoretical probability of a fire injury is already vanishingly small, and the actual number to date is zero,” he wrote.

Another software update in January will give the driver more control of the air suspension ride height, Musk wrote. The company also added fire damage to its warranty coverage “even if it’s due to driver error.”

FTC tips for your red flag rules program ( ITPP )

Are you complying with the Red Flags Rule?

The Red Flags Rule requires many businesses and organizations to implement a written Identity Theft Prevention Program designed to detect the warning signs — or “red flags” — of identity theft in their day-to-day operations. By identifying red flags in advance, businesses will be better equipped to spot suspicious patterns that may arise — and take steps to prevent a red flag from escalating into a costly episode of identity theft.

Resources on this site can help business people educate their staff and colleagues about complying with the Red Flags Rule.

What Compliance Looks Like

Your Identity Theft Prevention Program is a “playbook” that must include reasonable policies and procedures for detecting, preventing, and mitigating identity theft. Your Program should enable your organization to:

  1. identify relevant patterns, practices, and specific forms of activity — the “red flags” — that signal possible identity theft;
  2. incorporate business practices to detect red flags;
  3. detail your appropriate response to any red flags you detect to prevent and mitigate identity theft; and
  4. be updated periodically to reflect changes in risks from identity theft.

The Red Flags Rule also includes guidelines to help financial institutions and creditors develop and implement a Program, including a supplement that offers examples of red flags.

The FTC and the federal financial agencies have issued Frequently Asked Questions and answers to help businesses comply with the Rule.

Who Must Comply with the Red Flags Rule?

The Rule requires “financial institutions” and “creditors” that hold consumer accounts designed to permit multiple payments or transactions — or any other account for which there is a reasonably foreseeable risk of identity theft — to develop and implement an Identity Theft Prevention Program for new and existing accounts. The definition of “financial institution” includes:

  • all banks, savings associations, and credit unions, regardless of whether they hold a transaction account belonging to a consumer; and
  • anyone else who directly or indirectly holds a transaction account belonging to a consumer.

A change in the law on December 18, 2010 amended the the definition of “creditor,” and limits the circumstances under which creditors are covered. The new law covers creditors who regularly, and in the ordinary course of business, meet one of three general criteria. They must:

  • obtain or use consumer reports in connection with a credit transaction;
  • furnish information to consumer reporting agencies in connection with a credit transaction; or
  • advance funds to — or on behalf of — someone, except for funds for expenses incidental to a service provided by the creditor to that person.
