You need a transfer dealer license if you transfer ownership of at least twelve (12) motor vehicles during a twelve (12) month period as a result of your primary business. Examples of transfer dealers include financial institutions and insurance companies dealing in repossessed or salvaged vehicles.
You do not qualify for a transfer dealer license if you are someone whose business is limited to providing towing or transportation services for vehicles. However, you may qualify for transport operator plates, which are issued by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The application is available here (State Form 37028).
You do not qualify for a transfer dealer license if you qualify for any other license type issued by our office. Example: If you buy cars for the express purpose of fixing them up and selling them, you likely qualify for a used motor vehicle dealer license and would be ineligible for a transfer dealer license.
