Salesperson License in Massachusetts

Your Municipality's Licensing Board

The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) does not handle vehicle salesperson licenses; just like motor vehicle dealer licenses, your municipality's licensing board handles these.

Since each municipality handles vehicle salesperson licenses, you must contact your local licensing board for specific information on how to become a vehicle salesperson in your area. However, you may want to ask the following questions:

  • Is there an application deadline?
  • What fees are associated with salesperson licenses?
  • Is there a waiting period, and if so do I get a temporary permit in the meantime?
  • How do I obtain a duplicate salesperson license?
  • How do I renew a salesperson license?
