Which Surety Bond in North Carolina Do You Need?

There are three types of North Carolina 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

North Carolina 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.

Commonly obtained license bonds in North Carolina are contractor license bonds: specifically the landscape contractor’s licensing bond required by the North Carolina Landscape Contractor’s Licensing Board, and the modular building set-up contractor license bond required by the North Carolina Department of Insurance. Another license bond that’s frequently applied for is the motor vehicle dealer bond that’s needed to get a dealer license, which is required by the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles License & Theft Bureau.
