You need to make sure you follow this application process:

- Fill out the Applicant Questionnaire for the Licensing of Dealers, Transporters, Loaners or Recyclers (Form MVD-362) and have it notarized.
- Fill out the Building Code, Zoning and Land Use Regulatory Ordinance Clearance (Form MVD-363). It needs to be signed and notarized by the local zoning officer where the dealership will be located.
- Submit a completed Maine State Police background check.
- If the business is a partnership, submit a copy of the partnership agreement with the names of all partners and their percentage of ownership. This paper must also be recorded with the town or city where the business is to be located.
- If the business is a corporation, submit a copy of the corporate articles with the names of all partners and their percentage of ownership. This paper must also be recorded with the town or city where the business is to be located.

Once all of the above are filed with the application, an inspection will be scheduled by the Maine BMV.

The applicant will need to pay a $150 licensing fee before the license can be issued.
