Continuing Education for Independent Dealers Updated
AICE Continuing Education for Independent Dealers has rolled out its 2014 online training program. The program continues to be user-friendly, convenient, inexpensive and full of hot topics that are important to Florida's independent dealers.
The new training not only includes topics that are "hot" among federal and state regulators, but also includes a brand new topic virtually unknown to independent dealers. That topic has to do with accepting trade-ins that are titled or registered in foreign countries. If independent dealers don't know about this law, they are subject to fines and seizure of their trades!
Sign up now and get your continuing education course taken care of. Remember, you only have until April 1st to submit your dealer license renewal to ensure your license remains active on May 1st. To sign up for this course, click here and pick the first course on the list. You will be happy you did!
Powers of Attorney: Which One Should I Use?
Confusion still exists as to when a dealership may use either the secure power of attorney (Form HSMV 82995) or the non-secure POA (Form HSMV 82053), and under which conditions the dealer may act as Attorney-in-Fact. I have been asked these questions so many times that I decided to develop a short video training course on this topic.
The online course (which lasts under 30 minutes) goes into detail regarding the different uses of each POA and how to properly complete titles using POAs. Step-by-step instructions will assist the newest title clerk, salesperson or F&I professional as well as more experienced personnel.
The video course is offered for only $18.95. Click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page and choose this course (AICE - 014) to register now!

Realtors: Want to Sell Mobile Homes in Florida?
As realtors are aware, if a mobile home is being sold on a rented or leased lot, realtors are not licensed to sell that mobile home. Instead, one must be licensed as a mobile home dealer or mobile home broker. If, however, the mobile home is being sold with the land - making it a real property sale - then realtors are licensed to sell that mobile home.
Because of this distinction in the law, realtors are missing many opportunities to sell mobile homes. Become a Florida mobile home dealer or broker. These licenses allow you to buy and sell new and used mobile homes as a mobile home dealer, or used mobile homes as a mobile home broker. Take our online class and find out what you need to do to become a mobile home dealer or broker. Click here to register now for the online Mobile Home Dealer & Broker Pre-Licensing One-Day Course (Course Number AICE: 003 PL1) for only $68.95. Included in this price is 30 days of technical support. We will answer all of your questions for up to 30 days after completing this course to help you get started and on the right track! All courses are approved and authorized by the licensing authority -- the Florida Division of Motorist Services.

AICE Conducts Title Seminars with Qualified Instructor
Do you work for an auto/RV/MH dealership, auto auction or lender and need to learn how to process motor vehicle or mobile home titles and registrations? Not only is this seminar filled with a great deal of information to assist dealers in processing and preparing deals for the tag office, but it's taught from the dealer's perspective and covers related topics such as sales tax and other compliance issues.
