We offer the mandatory 5 hour WA State Auto Dealer Continuing Education course to all WA State independent auto dealers.

Our auto dealer continuing education course can either be:
- Online - Our online course is designed so that you can complete it at your convenience. Once you start the course, you may log out and resume later. You do not need to complete the course all at once. When you have completed the online course, you will be able to print out your completion certificate and we will notify the Department of Licensing; or
- Hard Copy - We can either mail or email our course to you. It's the same course as online, but in a hard copy format. Once you have completed the hard copy course, you must mail or fax the quiz pages to us. When you have completed the course, we will mail out your completion certificate and we will notify the Department of Licensing.
Our course is only needed for the independent motor vehicle dealer who sells used vehicles only. Motor vehicle dealers who sell new vehicles or new and used vehicles do not need to complete the continuing education.
