Motor Vehicle Ownership Surety Bond REG 5057

This form is used to support the issuance of a California title when regular evidence of ownership for the vehicle is not obtainable. Determination if a bond is required is based on the value of the vehicle.

The bond must be conditioned to protect the department, the applicant, and any future owner against loss resulting from any defect in, or undisclosed claim upon, ownership of the vehicle.
