Where do you get a Surety Bond in California?
Getting a California Surety Bond doesn’t have to be a long-drawn-out process. In fact, many types of Surety Bonds can be quoted, purchased and printed within 5 minutes with our bond quote calculator below. Start by selecting the type of bond you need, followed by the required bond amount. We’ve partnered with leading surety companies to offer you the best price for your California Surety Bond.
What type of Surety Bond do you need?
There are thousands of different bond types. So, it’s important you make sure you get the right type of Surety Bond with the correct amount of coverage. Otherwise, the Obligee (a.k.a. the entity making you get a bond) will not accept your bond. We recommend contacting your Obligee and requesting a copy of the bond form if you’re unsure of the type of Surety Bond they require from you.
If you’re needing a California bond, there is a good chance the type of bond you need is one of the bonds listed below.
Popular Surety Bonds issued in California:
Did you buy a car, but never received the title from the seller? Maybe you did get a title, but the seller title jumped and you’re unable to register the vehicle into your name. Fortunately, the state of California offers the option to get a title with a bonded branding for eligible vehicles.
Before purchasing a California Lost Title Surety Bond, you must verify your vehicle’s eligibility to be issued a Bonded Title with the California DMV. If approved, the bond amount will need to equal the value of your vehicle. However, you don’t have to pay the full bond amount. Most of our clients get their CA Certificate of Title Bond for $100.
When working on a contract project, you may be required to get a Bid Bond, Payment Bond or Performance Bond before you can start.
Need a quote for a Fiduciary Bond (Guardianship, Probate or Trustee) or Judicial Bond (Attachment, Indemnity to Sheriff, Injunction or Replevin)? We’re licensed to issue court-ordered bonds in California.
There are a few different types of California Fidelity Bonds:
- Business Service / Janitorial Bond: Protect your clients in the event an employee of yours steals from them.
- Employee Dishonesty Bond: These are commonly referred to as “Commercial Crime Fidelity Bonds”. Select this coverage to protect yourself and your business if your employee steals from you.
- ERISA Bond: The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) requires administrators of employee benefit and pension plans have an ERISA Bond to protect those plans.
If you’re a Finance Lender or Broker in California, you may need a Surety Bond. The bond is proof to your clients that you have their best interests in mind when handling their loans.
Notary Publics need to post a $15,000 Surety Bond with the state of California. We offer CA Notary Bonds starting as low as $50 for a 4-year term with Errors & Omissions (E&O) coverage.
Tax Preparer Bond
Vehicle Verifier Bond

What does a California Surety Bond cost?
The majority of our California Surety Bonds start at $100. Although, the cost of your bond is largely determined by the bond amount, the bond type and possibly your credit. More risk is associated with larger sized bonds, which typically means a larger premium is necessary.
Whether or not a pull on your credit is required depends on the bond type and amount you need. However, we perform a soft-pull on credit in these instances. Meaning, a credit check for a Surety Bond does not adversely affect your credit score. If you’re approved for the bond with good credit, the bond premium should be between 1%-5% of the bond amount.
Is it possible to get a Surety Bond with bad credit?
Yes, getting approved for a Surety Bond with non-standard credit is possible. In fact, many bonds don’t even require a credit check, which means your credit status doesn’t influence what you’ll pay for your bond. Instances where a credit check is required, approved applicants with bad credit typically receive quotes between 5%-15% of the total bond amount.
If you’re worried about getting denied for a bond due to your credit score, we recommend applying with us at Surety Solutions, A Gallagher Company. Our Surety Bond experts are happy to work with you to find an affordable solution to issue your bond.
