In accordance with the Motor Dealers and Chattel Auctioneers Act 2014, all motor dealers whether an individual or a large business, must be licensed to work in Queensland. Individuals selling cars without an accredited licence face fines off up to $25,230.

MTA Institute, the largest private provider of automotive apprenticeships and training in Queensland (RTO No.31529) offers online, accredited motor dealer licence courses.

With online resources, the course offers flexibility and convenience. It can be completed at the individual’s pace and is available to anyone over 18 currently employed in motor vehicle sales.

Paul Kulpa, General Manager of the MTA Institute said, “It is crucial for all motor dealers in Queensland to be licensed under the Motor Dealers and Chattel Auctioneers Act 2014.

“The licence, when successfully acquired through MTA Institute, gives participants the tools and knowledge to respond to customer enquiries, comply with legal requirements, follow safe working practices, appraise and purchase used motor vehicles and more.

“These skills are vital to ensure motor dealers can perform their job in a safe, professional and compliant manner.”
