How to Become a Car Dealer in California?
To become a licensed car dealer the State of California Department of Motor Vehicles requires a dealer applicant to take a six hour preparation class to become a licensed car dealer. There are 2 main types of dealers, retail or wholesale. Retail Dealers have more restrictions as liability which required more dealer insurance as well as a larger dealer bond, but retail dealer are the only dealers allowed to sell to the public. Wholesale dealers may only sell to other dealers. The applicant must take the class and pass a 40 question test, then submit an application and a bond, then submit photos and pass an on-site inspection. Upon review the DMV inspector will review the dealer's application and then approve the tempory license. Often the largest struggle for those attempting to start a retail dealership is the zoning for the city or county to allow a dealership at the choosen location. Make sure that the location you choose is zoned properly and/or will be an acceptable location for a retail dealership. Rarely do wholesale dealerships struggle getting proper zoning permission from the government. Once a would be dealer passes the test they must prepare for DMV approval from the inspector.

Depends. If you just didn't like the color, you're out of luck. If the problems with it are relatively minor, and it was an "as is" buy, you are in for an uphill battle. But i…f you only got fifty miles out of it and now it won't go, you have a legit gripe. Most states have "lemon laws" or something similar regarding inferior products. The first thing I'd do is just make nice with the seller and just explain what happened. Failing that, it depends on how willing you are to fight. I even knew a guy once that got a picket permit from city hall, painted a big lemon on the side of his jalop, and parked it in front of the dealership. Worked too, got his money back.

A college degree is not required to be a car dealer. Many dealerships just require that you have some sales experience before they would consider hiring you. Honestly, an stro…ng education is not a requirement to become a car salesman. A high school education is definitely preferred, but you do not need a college degree. You can attend some salesmanship classes, though, at your local community college for some sales education.
