Dealers & Auto Industry in Tennessee

There wouldn't be a reason for the Tennessee DOS if there weren't first folks that sold the vehicles.

In Tennessee, the DOS regulates drivers, but the DOS also determines the requirements and regulations that all dealers have to adhere to.

Whether it be signage requirements, paperwork requirements, or the eligibility requirements for those who want to sell cars, the Tennessee DOS is the overseer of all that information.

You'll need to know who can and cannot open a car dealership, how much it will cost, how and where to file the application forms. You'll also need to find out about consumer protection rules, and the regulations that stipulate what constitutes deceptive advertising practices.
