Second-hand vehicle dealer licence

Second-hand vehicle dealers must have a licence if they buy, sell or offer for sale four or more vehicles in 12 months. Unlicensed dealers can be prosecuted and penalties include fines and imprisonment.

Who can apply

  • sole traders
  • companies – the company and the manager must have separate licences
  • partnerships – each partner must have a separate licence
  • motor wreckers and crash repairers – even if they are only selling vehicles that can’t be driven because they need repairs.

When a licence is not needed

You don t need licence if:

  • you are a recognised credit provider and selling second-hand vehicles is a result of the business
  • you are an auctioneer selling on behalf of people who do not need a licence.
  • you only sell vehicles that:
    • weigh more than 3,000 kg
    • are designed for agricultural or industrial use
    • can t be used to transport on land – eg boats
    • aren t powered by an engine – eg caravans.

What you’ll need

Companies must nominate a manager who holds a second-hand dealers licence in their own name. This manager doesn t need to register an address or pay compensation fund fees.

Police clearance

Include with your application a copy of your National Police Certificate (NPC) no more than 12 months old.

Apply for an NPC through:

You do not need a NPC if you:

  • are director of a company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange
  • have lodged a NPC with CBS within the last year
  • are an overseas resident and have never lived in Australia
  • have held a licence within the last year and are applying for an equivalent licence
  • have already supplied a NPC for a different licence issued under this Act.

Checks that confirm you can work with particular people – eg children – but don t include a criminal history are not sufficient.

Fees include application and annual fee amounts. Dealers trading from more than one premises only need to pay one compensation fund fee each year.
