Class H (Foreign Salvage Vehicle Dealer) - To operate in Michigan, a
foreign salvage vehicle dealer must be certified as a salvage dealer for
vehicles or parts in his or her home state and be licensed by the Michigan
Department of State. A licensed foreign salvage vehicle dealer is authorized to
buy or sell late model distressed vehicles or major component parts only at
wholesale in Michigan.
A salvage vehicle agent license is required to buy or sell late model
distressed vehicles or late model major component parts at Michigan auctions and salvage pools, or
through brokers. A salvage vehicle agent license is not necessary when doing
business with other Michigan
dealerships, provided the activity is wholesale only.
