Printable PDF Document

PURPOSE:

An auction may or may not be required to license as a dealer while operating in the state of Idaho. The applicability of a license requirement will depend upon the specific activity that the auction is involved in regarding the sale of the vehicle. Dealer-licensing requirements are based on Sections 49-105(1) and 49-1601, Idaho Code, and IDAPA Administrative Rule 39.02.02.

This fact sheet will provide information detailing activities that do and do not require licensure as an Idaho Dealership.

  • Providing an auction service for the sale or exchange of a vehicle/vessel not titled in the name of entity offering the vehicle for auction or in the name of the auction company.
  • Offering at auction five or more vehicles/vessels titled in the name of the auction company or any entity during any calendar year.
AUCTION ACTIVITIES THAT DO NOT REQUIRE A DEALER LICENSE:
  • Offering at auction less than five vehicles/vessels titled in the name of the auction company in a calendar year.
