You'll need to have an Ohio's salesperson's license before you can sell, lease, or display a vehicle, even if you've been hired by a dealership. And, yes, this applies to both part-time and full-time employees.
Fortunately, it's not too difficult to obtain this license. For starters, if you're an Ohio resident, fill out the licensing form.
Fees and Where to Send
Enclose a check or money order for $10, made payable to the Treasurer, State of Ohio. Then, mail all this to:
- Dealer Licensing Section
- P.O. Box 16521
- Columbus, OH 43216-6521
Licenses expire on June 30th, every second year.
You'll also need to have your fingerprints taken electronically. (Fingerprint cards aren't permitted for in-state applicants.) The state provides a list of companies that offer this service. Have the results sent to the address listed above. Electronic fingerprinting fees vary by company, and you'll need to pay the company directly for the service.
Out-of-state applicants may submit a fingerprinting card instead. Call the Dealer Licensing section at (614) 752-7636 to obtain the fingerprinting card and an exemption form. (The state provides instructions on how to complete the card.)
Enclose an extra $15 to cover the cost of the fingerprint processing, when you mail your salesperson application and other material.
Licenses expire every two years on June 30th. Use the licensing form to renew your license for a fee of $10.
Additionally, if you've changed dealerships, use the form to transfer your license for a cost of $4. You don't need to do this if the new dealership is owned by the same corporation.
Also use this form to reinstate a license for $4, or obtain a duplicate license for $2.
