every dmv licensed salesperson needs to take our dealer training class

California DMV and IADAC, the California Independent Auto Dealers Association have sponsored a new dealer training law for 2017.
AB 1777 authored by Assemblyman Lackey of Riverside County mandates dealer training for all owners and salespersons under the existing dealer education format. ( Once every two years )

DMV Inspectors will want to see each salesperson license clearly posted
and
a valid renewal dealer education certificate available at the dealership for each salesperson listed on the dealers license.

Given that there are over 88,000 licensed salespersons currently in the DMV dealer database we are advising our dealers to get their salespeople in training NOW to avoid rush and confusion.
Our homestudy renewal program is still $ 68. and requires a FAX of the photo id, salesperson license and dealers license to get started.
OUR FAX REMAINS 1-888-948-1795

The new law is making it way thru the legislature and will soon be announced as 11805 CVC.

We support IADAC and Larry Lawkowski in their mission to improve dealer education thruout California.

You can reach Larry from IADAC @ 916-893-3306
Thanks for doing business with us.dealerplate

car dealers…..you must consider salespersons as employees or independent contractors

 

Larry Miles, senior attorney with The Miles Law Firm, recently won an important decision for the California auction industry involving the question of whether auto auctioneers are employees or independent contractors.  Arguing that auto auctioneers are sufficiently unique in their skills and independent in their work to justify being deemed independent contractors,  Miles persuaded the Employment Development Department administrative law judge to reject EDD efforts to classify the auctioneers as employees of the auto auction.

The important decision comes on the heels of a new state law, SB 459, that imposes new penalties for businesses that “willfully” misclassify workers as independent contractors.  In addition to penalties of potentially $5,000 to $25,000 per infraction, the new statute requires the offending employer to announce their “willfull” misclassification on their website for a year.  The new penalties are in addition to existing taxes and penalties that are due upon a redetermination by EDD.  The state Labor and Workforce Development Agency will enforce the new law effective January 1.

The silver lining for employers in the increased focus on misclassification of workers is the IRS’ recent announcement of an “amnesty” on penalties and interest attributable to a misclassification problem.  The “Voluntary Worker Classification Settlement Program” is available for employers who meet the eligibility requirements, which include 1) consistent prior treatment of the workers as independent contractors, 2) issuance of 1099’s for the workers in controversy, and 3) not already the subject of audit by the IRS or a state agency.  Under the program, the IRS will waive certain penalties and interest in consideration of the employer treating the workers as employees going forward and paying a little over 1% of the wages paid to the contractor for the past three years.  Consult the IRS’ website for further information regarding this program.

The new law raises the stakes for an innocent misclassification of a worker as an independent contractor.  Employers should consult with counsel if they have any questions regarding their current classification of any workers as an independent contractor.

The Miles Law Firm, A Professional Corporation, practices civil and business law, including extensive work in the auto and aviation industries. For more information, please email the Firm at mileslaw@milesfirm.com or review the Firm’s website.

DMV Car Dealer Insurance

All dealer license applicants must select the type of dealership and then carry appropriate insurance. Some dealers are under the mistaken notion that their car dealer surety bond acts as insurance. The car dealer surety bond does not provide dealer insurance coverage. If you are uninsured the surety bond is at risk with an unpaid claim and a court judgement.

If you are stopped by the CHP or local law enforcement driving an inventory vehicle with your dealer plate attached you will be asked to produce your car dealer insurance. If you do not have car dealer insurance the vehicle can be seized, impounded with DMV registration and sales tax then due. After you pay the tow and impound fees, the release, the sales tax and the registration you will have to appear at a DMV hearing to request that your dealer plate be returned to you.

Your car dealer insurance is comprised of three components:

Location Coverage

Inventory Coverage ( cost of vehicles up to stated amount )

Usage Coverage ( business and personal use )

The standard car dealer insurance policy is called garage keeper liability with a test drive endorsement. Please contact our car dealer insurance agent jonathan von arx jr @ 562-795-6611 for a competitive quote.

 

DMV Car Dealer Attorney

All dealer license applicants may encounter legal difficulty and need legal counsel.

If you are sued as a car dealer an attorney can be helpful.

If the DMV brings you to a hearing for dealer violations an attorney can be helpful.

If another dealer refuses to pay you and you need to make a bond claim, an attorney can be helpful.

We have two excellent DMV car dealer attorneys available:

Heather Rozzo, 559-322-3265

Stephania Francone, 831-566-1313

 

DMV Car Dealer Licensing Assistant

All dealer license applicants may encounter some difficulty and need assistance navigating the halls of DMV.

Our TriStar LA Instructor, Claudia Patton served as a DMV Training Manager for 32 years. Her knowledge and expertise is invaluable for all those applying or currently holding a car dealer license.
