Any person selling a vehicle for any Ohio dealer must have an Ohio Salesperson's License. As an owner, partner, or officer of the dealership you will not need a salesperson license. Since your name will be on an Ohio dealer license, you will be allowed so sell vehicles and not be required to have a separate salesperson license.
You may never allow any person to sell vehicles until they have received their salesperson license. You may not allow a salesperson to sell a vehicle while they are waiting for the application to be approved, they may only sell after they receive their Ohio salesperson license.
The Ohio salespersons license will cost 10 dollars for Ohio residents and 22 dollars for out of state residents.
Any person applying for an Ohio dealer salesperson license will have to be fingerprinted as well.
Allowing someone to sell vehicles for your dealership that has not met the minimum Ohio salesperson requirements could lead the suspension or revocation of your dealers license.
