Car Dealer License

After a couple of months of begging my dad for a car to restore, he decided that we could go to junkyards and stuff and restore them, and then sell them, as a hobby, (and so I can get some money )

So I was wondering, what do you need to do to get a car dealer license in Ontario?...

Any advice is good, and thanks in advance

Why don't you just go get a car restore it then sell it locally? Your going to make a buisness out of it? Have a lot and everything? Otherwise everything tells me you don't need that.

Actually Pythias, it is against the law in most places to sell over a certain amount of cars without a license to do so...although I am not sure how strict most places are with the law. For instance, Ontario's laws on this dictate:
"How many vehicles can an individual or company sell without being registered as a dealer?
None. Ontario's legislation does not provide for a number of vehicles that an individual or company can sell without the benefit of registration. Unless an individual is selling his/her personal vehicle privately, anybody buying or selling vehicles in order to gain a profit - or as part of their regular business operations (e.g. car rental companies, municipalities, or others that need to periodically renew their fleets)ómust be registered as a dealer."


Chris, I'm disappointed with your Google skills, lol. Here you go:

No, you can't sell a car for profit, but for example, you can sell your old car if you're getting a new one.

For people who don't know already:

Anythings legal, as long as no one else saw (or can prove) you did it.

Just kidding.... in a way.

Believe it or not, they actually pay people at the Department of Motor Vehicles to look at car ads and such and see if the same phone number is listed for more than one car. If so, they set up a sort of sting operation (sometimes also involving the local police) to attempt to find out if the person is selling multiple cars for profit. They call these people "curbstoners". A curbstoner is a person who try to pass themselves off as a private individual selling a car but actually have many used cars they are selling.

It's ok, 'bro' lol......we all take the p*ss here. And actually, Rent-a-Cops, due to being a short promotion from a civilian.....can, on occasion, be quite dodgy lol

You can sell your own vehicle privately, and make a profit from it, as long as it is your own personal vehicle. The governement monitors vehicle transfers and will notice when people are constantly buying and selling vehicles. They consider that a business and can charge you for "curbsiding" (as it is known in Ontario). There is no fine line on how many vehicles it takes to become a curbsider, but if they are suspicious they will charge you and let a judge decide that.
I know all this because I've come accross case law from these convictions. I hope this helps, even though it is an old discussion.
Here's the new website for becoming a dealer:
