Special occasion permit application (Motor vehicle dealer)
Who can apply for a Special Occasion Permit (Section 20H Motor Vehicle Dealers Act 1973)
A dealer may apply to the Commissioner for Consumer Protection for a temporary permit to carry on business where a special occasion is being, or is to be, held at a place for a limited period and the dealer wishes to carry on business in premises at the place in connection with the occasion.
What do I need to complete an application
An application must:
- be lodged at least 7 days prior to the special occasion
- be submitted by the holder of a dealer’s licence that will be current at the time of the event, a licensed yard manager employed and authorised by the applicant licensee or the authorised event organiser (with a list of all participating dealers that will be licensed at the time of the event)
- be accompanied by the non-refundable application fee for each permit
- detail the special occasion for which a temporary permit is being applied for and why the dealer wishes to carry on business on premises in connection with the occasion.
A permit is not required for a ‘new vehicle only’ display in a location which is not staffed.
The Commissioner may, by notice in writing to the holder of a temporary permit, revoke the permit if the Commissioner considers there is justification for doing so.
