New Salesperson licensing FAQ
Every person in contact with retail consumers at a dealership must have a valid Salesperson License.
Salespeople must comply with the Motor Dealer Act and portions of the Business Practices and Consumer Protection Act. The VSA monitors compliance through province-wide inspections and investigations. Plain language explanations of these requirements can be found in:
The VSA complies with the New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWPTA) which replaced the Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) in 2013. Once your VSA license is issued, you will have 45 days to complete your professional development requirement by completing the Salesperson Licensing Course, which focuses on BC law. Saskatchewan currently does not license automotive salespersons so a person from Saskatchewan must comply with the same process as a British Columbian applicant.
