A Pennsylvania inspection station bond is required before the Bureau of Transportation will issue a certificate of appointment to a privately owned facility within the Commonwealth. Pursuant to Pennsylvania statute, an applicant for a certificate of appointment must furnish a surety bond on a form prescribed by the Department (§ 175.22). The Pennsylvania inspection station bond must be written in the amount of $10,000 and a separate surety bond provided for each place of business to provide compensation to a vehicle owner for damage their vehicle may sustain while it is in possession of the inspection station. The bond must be renewed each year. Failure to do so will result in immediate termination of the station’s certificate of appointment. The Pennsylvania inspection station bond is a compliance obligation which guarantees that the appointee will fulfill its obligations and faithfully comply with all statutes, rules and regulations concerning said certificate of appointment as an official inspection station, and will hold harmless the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania from all loss or damage which it may sustain or for which it may become liable on account of the issuance of certificate of appointment. The Pennsylvania inspection station bond must be written as a continuous obligation, terminating only at the election of the Secretary of Transportation or at least sixty days after the surety gives written notice of cancellation.
