Dealers & Auto Industry
This topic contains state-specific information; to view it, please select the state you are interested in below.We realize that attempting to secure a dealership license is a daunting process. Not only does the State mandate an avalanche of applications but also an exacting array of building requirements. To lighten the process, we provide easy-to-follow dealership licensing information for each specific state.
You won't find any information that is written in a manner that requires an attorney to translate. All of our dealership pages are composed in a straightforward tone. Most, in fact, include lists of requirements, alleviating the pain of having to sift through lengthy paragraphs for one nugget of information.
In all, these pages offer three separate dealership categories: licensing requirements, dealer forms and dealer-related information.
None of the pages contain generalized fluff; instead they only offer information particular to each state. For example, you will find that Pennsylvania requires a minimum of five different applications, whereas North Dakota only requires one.
You'll also learn each state's dealership building requirements including the size of street signs, size of display lots, number of phone lines, and the posting of operating hours. And, you'll also uncover tips and advice on state Lemon Laws and the dangers of deceptive advertising.
Plus, you'll find downloadable application forms, including bill of sale and odometer disclosure statements, saving you the hassle of trying to track them down at a Department of Motor Vehicle office.
