Why Do I Need This Course?
Pursuant to California law dealers must complete a Continuing Education Program every 2 years. The course serves to remind dealers of their legal obligations to consumers when engaged in a vehicle sale.
How Often Does The Law Change?
In 2006, the California legislature passed Assembly Bill 68 (The Car Buyer’s Bill of Rights) which drastically changed several laws applicable to licensed dealers. Specifically, the California Vehicle Code, California Civil Code, and Revenue and Taxation Code were amended.
Since then, the legislature has proposed several rule changes. Our program is updated every month to account for any new laws.
Can I Take It Online?
Our course is an online program. You will receive an email with instructions on how to complete the program upon registering. You need a 70% minimum passing score on the final exam to obtain the course completion certificate.
Is The Certificate Sent Electronically?
Unfortunately DMV requires you attach the original course completion certificate with your license renewal notice. They should be mailed together to DMV. We will mail your certificate via USPS after you pass the final exam.
What Are My Shipping & Handling Options?
Option 1: USPS First Class Mail 1-3 Business Days — FREE SHIPPING
Option 2: USPS Overnight Delivery — $39.99
After you submit the registration form you will be redirected to a payment page where you can select your shipping option.
Wholesale-Only Dealer Continuing Education Exemption?
Wholesale-Only Dealers are not required to enroll in a Continuing Education Program every 2 years if they sell less than 50 vehicles in a 12 month period. That’s pretty cool! Make sure you attach DMV Form OL 257 with your renewal notice.
Continuing Education For Salespersons?
The California legislature is currently analyzing California Assembly Bill 2026. The bill requires salespersons employed by used vehicle dealers to attend a continuing education program every 2 years. Surprisingly, the law does not apply to salespersons employed by new vehicle dealers.
The dealer must reimburse the salesperson for the cost of the continuing educational program. Reimbursement shall include any registration or course fees, required materials, and compensation for the salesperson’s time required to take the course at a rate of pay not less than the employee’s regular base hourly rate.
Our online continuing education program is $65. It is updated regularly to reflect current law.
