Now That You Are Qualified

After becoming associated with a licensed motor vehicle dealer apply for your license as soon as possible. Once you are associated with a licensed dealership, the quickest way to complete the licensing process is to either deliver or send the application materials and payment directly to Dealer Services. You may send the materials by overnight mail with a prepaid return envelope, or you can visit a DMV customer service center to receive the license in person. Please note that your "Qualification" is not a license to sell vehicles. Prospective salespersons must be licensed in the name of a dealership before they can sell.

While your license application is being processed, you may begin on-the-job training. You are permitted to greet customers, show, and test drive vehicles with potential customers. However, you may not initiate or enter into negotiations for the sale of a vehicle or receive a commission for a sale. Many potential licensees have found observing licensed and experienced dealer and sales staff as a means of avoiding mistakes down the road. Once your application is approved and sent to you at the dealership where you are employed, then you may sell vehicles according to the provisions of your license.
