- AZ Motor Vehicle Bond Text
The AZ Motor Vehicle Bond may be required when proof of vehicle ownership is not available. The bond limit must equal one and one half times the fair market value of the vehicle. Premiums start at $100 for the 3-year term, and may increase for bond limits above $6,700.
The bond protects the public and the AZ DOT from damages should a claim arise, but the bonded owner (you) may be responsible for reimbursing any claims on the bond. Click here to visit the Arizona DOT website for the application, or for more information.
