Anyone who sells vehicles to licensed dealers on behalf of a licensed motor vehicle wholesale dealer, motor vehicle manufacturer or motor vehicle distributor must have a motor vehicle representative license. Representatives may sell vehicles for more than one business at a time. However, they may buy vehicles for only one licensed business at a time. There is no exam for the representative license.

No exam is required

There is no exam for the motor vehicle representative license. Representatives must be at least 18 years old, and cannot have been convicted of a crime directly related to the sale of motor vehicles. You do not need to have a valid drivers license to get a representative license. However, your employer might require it.
