Dealers Handbook in Kentucky

If you want to become a vehicle dealer in Kentucky, you'll need to complete the appropriate dealer-related forms and study the Kentucky Motor Vehicle Commission Dealer Handbook.

The handbook is available online using the free Adobe Reader, or you can contact the MVC and request a hard copy.

Inside the Handbook

Every dealer applicant and licensed dealer in KY should have a copy of the Kentucky Motor Vehicle Commission Dealer Handbook. Not only is it the best way to get started working toward a motor vehicle dealer license, but it's also a great reference tool.

The KY MVC Dealer Handbook covers everything you need to know about applying for a KY dealer license and dealer facility requirements to location and ownership change and how to sell previously damaged and salvaged vehicles.

The handbook includes a detailed list of important telephone numbers, including the Motor Vehicle Commission, the Kentucky Automobile Dealer Association, and the Transportation Cabinet.

You'll learn about the prohibited acts of all KY dealers, find out how to obtain dealer liability insurance, and you'll get an outline of the Franchise Protection Statutes.
