Which Surety Bond Do You Need?

There are three types of New York surety bonding that can be required of you:

It’s important you understand how surety bonds work and that you're responsible to pay claims in full, which makes it important that you find a bond company that will defend you from claims.

Getting License and Permit Bonds

New York requires license and permit bonds in order to get and file licenses/permits for many different professions. You can find the full list of license and permit bonds required by using our bond requirement search tool.

A commonly obtained license and permit bond is the street permit bond needed to close streets/sidewalks in NYC to perform work on them, which is required by the New York City Department of Transportation. Another license bond that’s frequently needed is the vehicle dealer bond required by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles.
