Why Dealer Compliance Matters
Knowing the rules and regulations that impact your dealership is crucial to protect yourself from potential risks and penalties. Car dealership laws are as diverse as the states and regions they operate in, which is why it’s necessary to have a partner that is accountable to your success in addition to local legal counsel to advise you on the specific rules in effect where you have business operations.
At a national level, government organizations work to protect consumers and regulate businesses, including the FTC dealership rules, which require specific levels of training and compliance.

Risk Management and Dealer
There are two sides to managing risk at your dealership, and both play a part in protecting your assets and your reputation – insurance and compliance. When approached comprehensively, both are critical to your success.
Dealership Risk Management
Having insurance coverage for your dealership, including garage liability, property insurance and hazard coverage helps control loss. These preventative measures and specialized programs specifically for auto dealers help meet your coverage needs to protect against the “what-ifs” of business operations
Compliance Training that Fits Your Needs
Help protect your dealership and mitigate risk with comprehensive training and compliance certification for your teams. As guidelines and laws evolve, there are liabilities every dealership needs to be aware of and best practices to implement.
Instructor-led, online and hybrid training on topics like legal and ethical standards, the FTC Safeguards Rule and other dealership requirements can help guard against potential legal action and lost profits.
Finding a Dealership Compliance Partner
Compliance is much more than surface-level, and trusting someone with your dealership’s reputation is a big deal. The foundation of all our dealer partnerships is the relationship we build from day one and work to consistently grow and sustain.
As an extension of your team, our consultants will work to help provide guidance and direction to your teams, conduct show-me deals to train your teams and complete reviews of recent deals to help ensure your processes are compliant in the service drive, F&I office and beyond.
