It is illegal to engage in the business of repairing or selling motor vehicles to consumers in Connecticut without a Connecticut Dealer License. No out-of-state dealer license is legal for the repair or sale of motor vehicles to consumers within Connecticut.
Anyone found selling or repairing motor vehicles in Connecticut without a Connecticut Dealer License is committing a class B misdemeanor and is subject to arrest. Also, no one may operate a "motor vehicle recycler's yard" (aka junkyard) without a Connecticut Recycler's License. Violation is a class C misdemeanor.
If you are aware of someone operating an unlicensed dealer, repairer or recycler business, you may send a detailed, written complaint to:
Department of Motor Vehicles
Dealer Enforcement Unit, Room 145
60 State Street
Wethersfield, CT 06161
You should also send a copy to the local zoning authority and police department of the town in which the business is located.
