Occupational Licensing Portals

Take the Course

The DMV has launched their online Occupational Licensing Portals.
These portals will be used to:
Apply for a new license / Renew or modify an active license / Pay fees associated with a license or application.

Set up your dealer portal here – on this page the DMV has help videos, we suggest watching the ‘Existing Industry Customers’ video for active dealers:

DMV has not completed their online digital certification system, as such we can not provide or upload a digital certificate until that process is finished.
At this time DMV is still requiring that educational providers mail physical certificates.
Dealers are required to scan or take a photo of their physical certificate and upload it to their portal.

Who can complete Continuing Education?
Continuing Education must be completed by a sole owner, partner, corporate officer, or managing member on record with the DMV. If you are a manager with a salesperson's license you will be asked to provide your salesperson's license number and expiration date when you register for the course.

How does the course work?
Our course highlights and explains the rules DMV requires dealers to be familiar with, plus current updates.
9 lessons, 9 multiple choice question quizzes. You cannot fail.
If you answer any question incorrectly, the course will direct you to where to find the right answer. You then can update your quiz and resubmit. When you finish, you will have learned all the key rules and updates.

Most dealers complete the course in less than one hour, including registration time. However, you can take as long as you like. After registration, you will be able to log in and out of your course at any time. Each lesson is saved as it is completed. There is no minimum, or maximum, time requirement.

What does it cost? When do I get my Certificate of Completion?
$49.00. Usps regular mail is included in the course price. When you register you will have the option to select Golden State Overnight Shipping (Mon-Fri) for $30.
We will deposit your original Certificate of Completion with your selected mailing option within 24 business hours of your course completion.
We will send you a confirmation email when we mail your certificate.

What are the Continuing Education requirements and exemptions?
