This Act makes changes and adds clarifying language to the dealership licensing section of Title21. First, it allows for the suspension of a dealership license for violations of either Title 21 or Title 30 rather than the current requirement for violations of both titles. It also adds that a dealer whose license is suspended cannot reapply for a new license until the terms of the suspension have been met. It also ensures the same character and conviction review standards applied during initial application of a dealership license are also applied to the renewal process. Finally, this bill adds a basis for suspension when a dealership is approved in Delaware, but in reality is rarely present or merely has a virtual office.
