Well my advise is DONT DO IT! But if you really want to know:-

OK, Are you married? Can you work 12 to 15 hours a day 6 days a week? Do you have nerves of steel? Are you able to take the last grain of hope from some one, that is down on there luck, or going through the lost of a love one and still be able to do your job? Or being able to handle or defuse a situation like having a gun in your face, and being told to give back there car or there going to kill you. These things that I mentioned and asked you, are only the tip of the iceberg. Don't get me wrong though, these things don't happen all the time, but when they do, for the first couple of times, or even every time, depending on the person that you are, it will really mess with you as a human being, and it will let you know, if you where meant to be a repossession agent. I became a recovery agent 5 years ago, and when I had my first gun put in my face on the job, I almost quit the next day. All I could think about at that second, was my wife and family. That's why I ask every one that asks, this question, I say "Are you married"?

In many of the states where repossession licenses are required, the new or prospective repossession agent will be required to apprentice with a licensed repossession agent.

When you purchased the car, you may have received a lien title from the state. This is not a clear title of ownership. The lender in essence still owns the vehicle, at least part of it. It is held in security for the loan. If you are a repossession company or agent, you will be required to have an order of repossession. But, if you are a repossession company or agent, you should already know this.

After repossession, the lien holder or agent sends information on how to reclaim the vehicle; if the owner does not respond or cannot repay the outstanding debt, the agent removes all personal belongings and sells the vehicle at auction. You will then be liable for the difference in what it sells for and the balance on the loan plus repossession fees.

Get yourself a business license and some clients.
