WHAT WILL YOU LEARN, AND WHAT WILL IT COST?

The DMV requires you to pass two tests with a score of at least 70% to get your dealer license. One you take at the end of our class, the other one you will take at your local DMV Inspector’s office. The tests are very similar and cover the exact same material.

Our six hour in-person class fulfills the DMV’s licensing requirements . We cover the different types of licenses, which one is best for you, and how to buy and sell for profit at dealer auctions. We cover wholesale and retail dealer licenses, auto brokering, consignment sales, exporting, salvage and Lemon Law vehicles, using dealer plates, valuing vehicles, and much more.

The class costs $125.00

Other classes have give-aways and gimmicks. We offer quality and the only money-back guarantee in the industry. Our class is 100% guaranteed. If after certification you do not pass the DMV’s Pre-Licensing test, you can re-take our class as many times as you like at no cost. We will provide extra instruction, study guides, and further assistance. We are committed to your success!

“I just wanted to let you know I took the DMV test yesterday and scored 98% on the first attempt. Your class was above and beyond my expectations. Your knowledge of the content is outstanding, probably the best there is.
I also purchased your Dealer License Application Guide. I have already started to use this tool and it is invaluable. I don’t believe there is a better product available to guide someone through the application process. Thanks again!”
