Salesperson License in Tennessee
How to Get a License
Anyone wishing to becoming a vehicle salesperson for a dealer must be licensed through the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC).
After being accepted for employment through a dealer, a prospective salesperson must complete a notarized Application for License for Motor Vehicle Salesperson (Form IN-1840). The dealer will also need to sign the form.
Send the form along with your $35 non-refundable payment to:
- Tennessee Motor Vehicle Commission
- 500 James Robertson Pkwy
- Nashville, TN 37243
The license is valid for work with only one dealer. If you leave the dealership, you'll need to relinquish your license to the dealer, who will return it to the MVC.
If you go to work for another dealer, you will need to repeat the application process, and pay the $35 fee again.
Licenses can be renewed at a cost of $35 by using the same Application for License for Motor Vehicle Salesperson (Form IN-1840).
