If you occupy one of these roles and wish to appoint another person as a dealer administrator, you need to have their full legal name, date of birth and email address. The person you appoint does not need to be a registrant. If you chose to appoint another individual as a dealer administrator, you will still retain your responsibility to ensure compliance with the Motor Vehicle Dealers Act and regulations.
