Dealers Handbook in Alabama

Those interested in becoming a dealer should read the Alabama Dealer License manual, published by the Alabama Department of Revenue.

This thorough, detailed manual contains a wealth of helpful information and forms for prospective dealers, including:

  • A frequently-asked questions section addressing many common dealer issues
  • Legal definitions affecting dealers
  • Location requirements
  • Dealer application forms and instructions
  • Liability insurance requirements
  • Bond filing applications and instructions

Of course, dealer licensing can be a complex issue, so those who have any lingering questions should contact the Severance and License Section of the revenue agency by calling (334) 353-7827, or writing to:
