Ask a Business Lawyer. Get Business Law Questions Answered ASAP.
Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
State laws on dealerships are vast and complex, and there are a variety of different laws that apply (salespersons, dealership licensing, autoshop licensing, etc...) The state of Virginia puts out a manual for Dealer Services that can be accessed here: http://www.dmv.state.va.us/webdoc/commercial/dealer/pdf/dealer_manual.pdf
It talks all about how to obtain your dealer certificates, how to transact business with the DMV, etc...
I suggest that you peruse that document, as well as http://www.dmv.state.va.us/webdoc/commercial/dealer/index.asp
