Motor vehicle dealer licences
You must have a valid motor vehicle dealer licence to run a dealership in the Northern Territory.
Licences are not transferable. If you sell your business the new owner must apply for their own licence.
Who needs a licence
You should read the Consumer Affairs and Fair Trading Act 1990.
You may be fined up to 2500 penalty units or $360,000 for operating without a licence or an approved manager.
Your vehicles and sales proceeds may also be forfeited or confiscated.
Contact a Territory Business Centre for help with your application.
