Salesperson License in North Carolina
Before you can sell cars, North Carolina requires a vehicle salesperson license.
You can only apply if you are 18 years old or older. If you meet this requirement, you then must:
- Attend a approved Division of Motor Vehicles licensing course for 12 hours.
- After finishing the course, visit any License and Theft Bureau office to complete an application and pay a $15 fee.
For questions, call any License and Theft Bureau office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, when licensing agents are present to field questions.
- Licenses are valid for an 1 year (until June 30th of the year following its issuance), before you must renew again.
- You can only work for a single dealership with your license. Otherwise, you must notify the License and Theft Bureau if you jump ship to a different dealership.
