Non-Franchise Dealers Pre-Licensing Course
If you're applying for a non-franchise dealer license, you must attend an eight hour pre-licensing course before you're issued a dealer license. The original certificate of course completion must be submitted with your application.
This requirement does not apply to non-franchised dealers owned and operated by franchised dealers, non-franchised dealers whose primary business is salvage, or non-franchised dealers whose primary business objective and majority of business activity is the rental of motor vehicles.
