Pre-Licensing and Dealer Education
Don't be fooled by the idea of how easy an online class is.
  • Think about being able to ask an instructor to stop for questions
  • Hear what other students are concerned about.
  • After the class is taken are there experts available to call for help
  • Help in reviewing your application
  • Guidance and direction for Bond and Insurance needs
  • Hear from guest speakers on becoming a successful dealer
  • OIADA can not assist you if you choose another means of education.
Start your business venture right at OIADA with our Pre-Licensing
Programs. Our class is a DMV required 8 hours. All of the material
is current and up to date. Once you complete the test OIADA will
provide you with certified certificate of completion to present DMV.

Once you take your Pre-License class from OIADA we will be
there for
your first 4 weeks in business to help guide you through
and to answer
any questions. After your first 4 weeks in business
you will need to join
OIADA for further assistance. However if you
choose not to use
OIADA's Pre-License class, please be aware
that we can not assist you
with any of your business/dealership
questions, without being an
OIADA member.
We offer top-notch instructors who will walk you through your
Pre-Licensing Guide Book chapter by chapter. This book will go home
with you and OIADA believes it will be one of your most valuable tool
as you build your new business. Contact OIADA for more information
on how you can get signed up to get you started off as an Independent
Auto Dealer of Oregon.

Did you know that the State only requires you to pass the test with
a 70%,that's all well and good but are you willing to leave 30% of
the critical and valuable knowledge needed to build and run a
successful dealership on the table. At OIADA's  Pre-license class we
will go over areas on the test that you might question to assure you
will leave with a 100% of the knowledge you need.
Once you take our class we do not leave you hanging! 
We will be there to
help walk you through filling out your DMV application, we will guide
you through the process and provide you with a qualified list of agents
who can help you with your insurance and bonding.
