1

Obtain Your License Packet

New Motor Vehicle Dealers:

The Dealer Initial License Packet can be downloaded from the OMVC website. The packet includes details, instructions and applications to get you started with the licensing process.

Used and Wholesale Motor Vehicle Dealers:

The Used Motor Vehicle Dealer’s Application and Wholesale Motor Vehicle Dealer’s Application can be downloaded from the UMVPC website. Follow the instructions in the documents to complete the application process.

Additional forms are available at the UMVPC forms page. Be sure to also review the rules and regulations.


2

Obtain a Permanent Business Location

New Motor Vehicle Dealers:

The established place of business must be a permanently enclosed building or structure (not a residence or temporary structure). The location must include an indoor show room, separate office and public areas, restrooms, service and parts area and dedicated parking space.

Used Motor Vehicle Dealers:

The location must have a permanent structure separate and apart from any residence or other business. The facility must have an accessible restroom for the public.

Wholesale Motor Vehicle Dealers:

The office must be a permanent room or building separate and apart from any other business. You’re allowed to use a room in your home, as long as this room is not used for any other purpose.

Dealers with all license types are also required to have a business sign and supply various pictures of the location to the OMVC.

Bond Amount Required:

  • Used Motor Vehicle Dealers: $25,000
