(1) Motor vehicle service agreement companies licensed under this part may be subject to periodic examination by the office in the same manner and subject to the same terms and conditions as apply to insurers under part II of chapter 624. The office is not required to conduct periodic examinations pursuant to this section, but may examine a service agreement company at its discretion.

The costs of examinations conducted pursuant to ss. 624.316(2)(e) and 624.3161(3) may not exceed 10 percent of the companies’ reported net income for the prior year. The commission may by rule establish provisions whereby a company may be exempted from examination.

(a) The amount of time that the company has been continuously licensed and operating under the same management and control.
(b) The company’s history of compliance with applicable law.
