Motor Vehicle Sales

Under Alaska law, businesses need to secure a $50,000 surety bond if they want to operate a motor vehicle dealership or act as a buyer’s agent in any of the Last Frontier’s counties. Motorcycle dealers need a smaller $25,000 bond.

Construction Contractor Bonds

Alaska requires licensing of state contractors, and these licensing requirements include the need to purchase a surety bond and file it with the Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development. The bond amount is determined based on the type of license as shown in the table below:
License Type Bond Amount
Handyman $5,000
Specialty/Mechanical Contractor $10,000
Residential General Contractor $20,000

Notary Public Bonds

Alaska requires those wishing to become a notary public to file a $1,000 bond with the Office of the Lieutenant Governor for each four-year term. Many notaries also purchase errors and omissions insurance to protect their business.

Financial Services Bonds

Financial services providers in Alaska often need to purchase a surety bond to operate. Bond requirements include collection agency bonds, investment adviser bonds, or premium finance licensing bonds.

Miscellaneous Business Bonds

A number of unrelated businesses in Alaska require surety bond coverage. They include hearing aid dealers, home inspectors, and civilian process servers to name a few.
