How to Get Dealer License
Without Car Lot?
Hi, I’m Don Massey, a licensed Colorado car dealer.
I have some extremely important information to share with you. Knowing this could make the difference of you getting or not getting a dealer license. Interested in knowing what it is?
When you read the dealer license requirements for your state you will begin by assuming you need to have a car lot to qualify for your license. So everything you read will be interpreted through this assumption. You can find the requirements at http://dealer-license-requirements.com
Let’s see what a few states say in their dealer license requirements about a car lot.
California: There is no reference to a “lot” in their licensing rules. California requires you to have a business location. You cannot sell from your home.
Texas: In the license requirements for Texas there is no mention about a lot requirement. You must have a business location.
Missouri: This state requires a business location with the display area or a lot. In other words a your display area can be inside the building. No lot required.
Colorado: This is my state. I’m going to show you an example a person who correctly interpreted the rules for what they say, not his preconceived idea of a car dealership. Colorado’s primary business location license requirements are:
- Must have an enclosed office
- Books and records safely stored
- Electrical service
- Facility used exclusively for dealer business.
- Parking Spaces (note it does not say lot)
- Permanent signing with letters at least 6 inches tall
- Must comply with local regulations and zoning
Here is a photo of his “dealership”!
Bingo! Wow! A commercial storage building! Doesn’t look like a dealership! Doesn’t look like a sales place! Where are the parking spaces? Inside! He simply found a location that meets the requirements for the dealer license. So what does this mean?
He knew how to get a dealer license without a car lot!
So what do you need to do when reading requirements? You need to think out of the box. I don’t know of any state to requires a lot. Business location? Yes, and by the way, there are other ways to satisfy this business location quagmire
Now here’s a question.
How are you going to think out of the box when you don’t know anything about the box?
Doesn’t that make sense?
Do you know you need more information about the box?
Do you want an experienced mentor to show you all the roadblocks to getting a license and how to get over them?
if your answer is yes, then you’re at the right site. I have the info and resources to guide you through understanding how to get dealer license without a car lot and much more!
