Auto Dealership Operator

The path to a Dealer-Operator license begins with a required two-day course of study. The course takes the attendee from establishing the dealership under local zoning and Dealer Board requirements, through the sales process with its multitude of forms, laws and regulations, in to a sampling of opening and operating expenses, and ending with a discussion on ethics. The course is open to all existing dealers and their employees.

Curriculum and instruction provided by Virginia Independent Automobile Dealers Association.
