Virginia Independent Auto Dealership Association (VIADA)
Have you always wanted to open your own Auto dealership?
The path to a Dealer-operator license begins with this VIADA approved two-day course. The Virginia Independent Auto Dealership Association provides the curriculum and instruction for the course. 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 test will be given at the end of instruction on the second day. You must pass this test with a grade of 80% before taking the final exam at a DMV Customer Service Center. Those who do not pass will be required to retake the course at a future time. An additional fee is required. Students who pass the final exam at the DMV Customer Service Center must submit the necessary application forms and fees to the Motor Vehicle Dealer Board to become a licensed car dealer in Virginia.
The course is also open to all existing dealers and their employees as well.
