Please note: this does NOT apply to Class A/B…or supplementals to a Class A license

The Michigan Department of State recently mailed dealer license renewals. This is a good time to remind standalone Class B dealers that new regulations require renewing Class B dealers to have a designated employee at each retail sales location that has completed the standard or continuing education dealer training program. A single individual cannot be the designated employee for more than three (3) locations.

When renewing a dealer license, standalone Class B dealers (those not connected to an A license) must sign and certify that this requirement will be done (or has been done). Dealers will have a short grace period after renewal to meet the designated individual training requirement; however, it is recommended that training be completed in advance. The training will be verified by the state in 2020 and violations will be written for non-compliance.

For more information, refer to this March 2019 bulletin from the state, or this FAQ with a link to the training schedule. If you have further questions please contact Jean Quinn at (800) 292-1923 or email
