  • #1 qualification is GOOD SENSE, Patience and a cool head under fire. 21 to drive under commercial insurance. Some companies require HS diploma, but some don't. #1 is most important. Age is not a barrier to learning, second driver(helpers) start young. A lot depends on the company. CA and FL have tighter rules and require specific training. email me if you want more info.
  • In GA you have to be 21 to be a driver for insurance reasons. I'm 21 and have been doing repos since i was 15, that's 6 years experience!!!!I'm still young and full of energy but its not a great life. I work from home when I'm not in a truck or in the office. I sleep 3-4 hours a day 6 days a week i eat fast food every meal and drink coffee by the gallon after 10 pm. I love it and you really have to be a certain type of person to do this stuff. It's not glamorous by any means. I've been run-over ,punched and shot at twice, had a 2 bricks thrown at me last week,breaking the windshield as i drove away. I know the laws i have to abide by and i know that the average debtor doesn't know their rights ...I do use that to my advantage from time to time as we all do. But I don't abuse that fact the they don't know their rights. So if you can work on 30 hours of sleep a week,eat horrible crap food all the time, sit and stare at a computer screen for hours on end ,talk to debtors on the phone without giving away your intent,and sit in a loud truck driving around the city for in the middle of the night. This is the job for you. I know its perfect for me and don't want to do anything else.
  • More and more states are now requiring CARS (Certified Asset Recovery Specialist®) certification. One way to get that certification is to go to a school. However BEWARE - most schools, classes, and courses you see advertised are actually Online or "Read-a-Book" type programs. I would suggest looking for a real repossession school taught in a real classroom by experienced repossession professionals. There are very few out there, but if you look hard enough you can find one. Try Midnight Express Recovery Agent School: - They provide training in all aspects of repossession including preparation for the CARS (Certified Asset Recovery Specialist®) test and certification.
