Beginning January 1, 2006, the dealer-operator of any new independent motor vehicle dealership is required to successfully complete a course of study before they will be allowed to take the independent dealer-operator qualification test at any DMV Customer Service Center.
The Virginia Community College System and the Virginia Independent Automobile Dealers Association (VIADA) have teamed up to present a two-day course at one of the many 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 for the course is two-tiered. If a person registers prior to two weeks of class date, the cost is $325.00 per person. If a person registers within the last two weeks of the class date, the cost is $375.00 per person. The registration fee must be submitted by check or credit card, payable to the community college taking the registration.
