Salesperson Additional/Multiple Licenses - Auto Industry Division

 

    Working for Multiple Dealerships

    If a Salesperson is employed by more than one (1) dealership they must apply for an additional license.

    To apply to work for multiple dealerships you must obtain a license for each Dealership that you are employed by.

    • A Salesperson Motor Vehicle license may be used to work for the same Motor Vehicle Dealer and a Powersports Dealer. You do not need an additional license to work for both.

    Authority to Sell Motor Vehicles

    Temporary License

    First time applicants may begin selling motor vehicles when they are issued a TEMPORARY LICENSE:

    • The TEMPORARY LICENSE is subject to denial pending the results of a background investigation. The application review and investigation process may take several weeks. If an applicant has been the subject of Dealer Board licensing or disciplinary action within the past 5 years, the applicant will not receive a temporary license and may not start selling until the Board reviews the application and grants a license.
    • The TEMPORARY status is in effect until the license is approved or denied. If the application is approved, a permanent license will be issued. If the application is denied, a Notice of Denial is issued and the applicant must immediately cease selling motor vehicles upon receipt of the Board Order. The Notice of Denial documents explain an applicant’s right to request a formal hearing.

    Permanent License

    When a motor vehicle salesperson license is issued, it is valid for one year following the month of issuance. For example, if a motor vehicle salesperson license is issued on September 5th, the license is valid for one year and expires on September 30th of the following year. The license is mailed to the employing dealer. The dealer will post the license at their place of business.
