Car Tips - Surety Bonds for Vehicle Dealers

Auto dealers in most states must file a surety bond with the state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) before they can receive their auto dealer license. Unfortunately, purchasing an auto dealer bond can be one of the most confusing parts of getting a dealer license. That's why we developed the following comprehensive guide to auto dealer bonding.


Surety bonds are designed to protect customers and the state from auto dealers that commit fraud. A surety bond will help ensure that your dealership will follow the car dealership legislation and regulations in your state.


On this page you'll find a general overview of dealership surety bonds. For specific information about what type of surety bond you'll need and what documents you'll need to submit to satisfy the surety bond requirement of your dealership licensing process, please contact the appropriate motor vehicle agency in your state.


General Surety Bond Requirements


As with other surety bond types, auto dealer bonds provide financial guarantees that help regulate the industry. Auto dealer bonds protect customers, sellers, financial enterprises, and/or government agencies. If a dealer commits fraud or conducts business in other unethical ways, the bond helps these entities recover from any resulting financial loss.


Additionally, having a surety bond gives your dealership credibility to both your customers and the appropriate agencies in your state.


Depending on where you work and what kind of dealership you plan to operate, you might need to file one of many different auto dealer bond types. Some common ones include:


- DMV bonds.

- RV bonds.

- Motorcycle dealer bonds.

- Used car dealer bonds.

- Wholesale car dealer bonds.


No matter the specific name of the bond, they work in the same basic way. If a bonded motor vehicle dealer breaks the bond's terms, the wronged party (i.e. a customer, bank, or government agency) can make a claim against the bond to get compensation.


Vehicle Dealership Surety Bonds in Every State


The state agency that is in charge of licensing auto dealers should tell you if you need a bond before you begin the application process. If you haven't been told that you need a bond, it's a good idea to contact the agency and make sure you don't need one. You might also take the time to learn more about the dealer licensing process in your state.


Generally, obtaining and filing a surety bond is a normal part of the dealer licensing process in every state.


Cost of a Surety Bond for Your Dealership


- The exact price you'll pay for a surety bond will vary for a few reasons, such as:

- The required surety bond amount.

- Your application and financial credentials.

- If you choose to finance your bond premium.

- Your credit score.


Generally, if your financial credentials qualify you for the standard market, your premium could be calculated as just 1% of the bond amount, which would only be $500 for a standard $50,000 bond. Conversely, dealers with poor credit could pay a premium that's a higher percentage of the bond amount. The best way to determine your exact surety bond cost is get a free price quote from a surety provider.

How To Become a Lawyer In Singapore?

Being a lawyer, your main job is to represent your clients, businesses, individuals, and government agencies who are involved in some kind of legal disputes. Likewise, in order to effectively represent and give the appropriate advise their clients need, a lawyer should know how to interpret the laws, rulings, and they should also have the ability to fit out legal documents if ever. Some of the most common documents a lawyer usually handles include contracts, lawsuits, wills, and deeds. Additionally, they could also have a specialization in a specific area that's related to the legal system, such as corporate law, criminal law, taxes, litigation, and family law.


These professionals work on a full-time basis, and if it's needed, they should be willing to work for longer hours, even during the weekends and evenings. Most lawyers usually work in an office setting, but there are some who travel for cases and meetings, especially if it's required. This kind of job could really be stressful, but it'll also depend on the specialty. Without a doubt, the income is truly promising though...


Job Requirements


Aside from obtaining a bachelor's degree, those who aspire of becoming a lawyer should also go to law school. Aside from that, they're also required to take and pass the bar exam of Singapore in order to practice their career.


Common Requirements


* Degree Level: Juris Doctor

* Degree Field: Law (the specializations may vary)

* Licensure: Should pass the bar exam in Singapore

* Experience: Before a lawyer could start their own practice, they're required to work as associates first.

* Key Skills: Aside from having good analytical skills, they should also have strong communication, problem-solving, and research skills.


Steps on How to Become a Lawyer in Singapore:

Earn a Bachelor's Degree


Even though there isn't any specific bachelor's degree to be taken by prospective lawyers, several subjects could prepare the students for law school. Taking courses in history, English, economics, and political science could be completed within several majors and this could give the student the idea of what area in law, they're interested to pursue. Likewise, it's vital for students to perform well, even in their undergraduate courses, because this would have a bearing when they enroll in a law school.


Tip: If you can, try to participate in mock trials


Oftentimes, undergraduates have the opportunity to take part in mock trials and this would give them an experience of what it's like to become a trial attorney. Furthermore, mock trials also help a student to develop the essential skills that would allow him to understand the judicial system even more.


Take the LSAT


LSAT, or the “Law School Admission Test” is a required, standardized exam that undergrads must take before they could enter a law school that's accredited by the Singapore Bar Association. This exam is offered on a quarterly basis and it evaluates the applicant's verbal reasoning and reading skills. It's one of the most important factors that a law school takes into consideration before accepting an applicant for admittance. Questions on the exam are composed of analytical reasoning, reading comprehension, and logical reasoning.

2014 Honda CB1100 - Al Lamb's Dallas Honda

2014 Honda CB1100 - Al Lamb

The CB1100 pays homage to Honda’s long line of capable, reliable and fun street motorcycles. With an 1140cc, fuel-injected inline four, the CB1100 is a modern bike for riders who love to ride. Precision and power are second nature to this beast of a supersport motorcycle, while its agile chassis and responsive suspension ensure a smooth ride for comfortable travel around town or on weekend rides. The Honda CB1100 has a generous helping of all the good stuff, and a whole lot to offer.


The 2014 CB1100 edition boasts a new six-speed transmission with great handling and plenty of power. The timeless in-line four engine displaces 1140cc and includes air cooling to look exactly like a cruiser motorcycle should. An engine this size packs the power you need for any adventure – from a weekend getaway or a spirited street ride. Classic inline-fours featured twin-loop full-cradle steel chassis in black. Sure it looked great, but CB1100 offers a completely modern chassis design, too. With an aluminum swingarm, 41mm front fork, cast wheels and polished aluminum engine covers, you’ll quickly discover that the supersport motorcycle offers plenty of style along with performance.


And just like the classic variation, the CB1100 is comfortable too. Whether you ride it for 15 minutes or 5 hours, you’ll see that it’s one of the easiest-to-handle machines in any class. The new CB is a cruiser motorcycle that you just hop onto like you used to, especially when you have no particular place to go. Completely nostalgic, the CB1100 is also super-functional, easy-to-ride and just asking to take a place in your garage.

·        Deviations from standard procedures.


·        Wastes of time.


·        Confusion.


·        Feeling like you are losing time and money.


·        You and the employees invent solutions that later are proven to be wrong solutions.

Most Optimum Condition - By Meir Ezra

What is the spirit most optimum condition?


There is no more condition more optimum than ‘I am what I create myself to be at any instant.’ That is really optimum. That is too juicy. That's too wonderful. Nobody could be that! And yet, that's what every thetan is“! ...


So there is a goal on the line. What do you want? What do you want to make? What do you want to create? What effect do you want to create? It's just yours. Wham. There isn't any more than that“.


“I mean, you've said the most superlative you could say when you say somebody—somebody is the potentiality of directed creation."
