There are three easy steps to becoming a car dealer in the State for California.
1) Enroll in the New Dealer Class in the city closest to you. The new car dealer licensing class is $150 payable online via paypal, credit card or in person at the class. Once you take the class you must contact you DMV Inspector and take the Car Dealer License test.
2) After you have completed the DMV Dealer test you must prepare a location. First, obtain a zoning letter, then set up a location and get a dealer bond.
3) Now that you have your location, zoning letter and dealer bond in place, contact your DMV Inspector, prepare the necessary photos, signs and parking spots. The DMV Inspector will visit your location and approve your location if everything is in place. You will then be issued a temporary Car Dealer License.
