Dealer-Operator Training Courses
The dealer-operator of any new independent motor vehicle dealership is required to
successfully complete a course of study before they are permitted to take the
Independent Dealer-Operator Qualification Test at a DMV Customer Service
Center. "Grandfathered" dealer-operators, title clerks and salespersons are
encouraged to take the course as well.
The Virginia Community College System and the Virginia Independent Automobile Dealers
Association (VIADA) have teamed up to present two-day courses at Community College
campuses throughout the state.
Registration materials and information are available from each of the
Community Colleges’ WEB site or by calling the individual college.
The cost must be submitted by check or credit card, payable to the college, and
submitted with the registration. View New Dealer Requirements
