Take the Course

The DMV is currently launching 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:

*Please Note*: DMV is in the midst of developing 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.
