Dealers Handbook in Illinois
Those wishing to become motor vehicle dealers within the state of Illinois must complete an extensive licensing process.
Although there is no formal handbook available for motor vehicle dealers, the Secretary of State does publish a regular newsletter containing important policy updates for dealers and remittance agents. You can download this publication on the Secretary of State website. The Regulations for Vehicle Dealers pamphlet also provides useful information for those who are new to the business of selling motor vehicles within the state.
