11 NCAC 08 .0911    SALESMAN EXAM; TEMPORARY LICENSE; LICENSE TRANSFER; FEES

(a)  A salesman's license shall be issued to any applicant after the Board has approved the applicant's criminal history record check upon receipt by the Board of a properly executed application, receipt of the applicant of a passing grade (70 percent of a possible 100 percent) on a written examination administered by the Board, and qualification of the applicant for licensure, except as follows:

(1)           Those persons holding a Registered Housing Specialist certification from the North Carolina Manufactured Housing Institute on or before June 30, 1992, are exempt from the examination requirement.

(2)           Any salesman who has been tested and licensed under this Section and whose license has lapsed is not required to be re‑tested if he re‑applies for licensing within 12 months after the expiration of the lapsed license.

(b)  A temporary salesman's license shall be issued prior to the Board's approval of the applicant's criminal history record check for a period of 90 days to a person upon request of the employing dealer.  The holder of a valid salesman's or temporary salesman's license may sell manufactured homes only for the dealer with whom he is employed as shown on the application.  A temporary salesman's license shall not be renewed.

(c)  A salesman's license is valid only as long as the person remains employed with the dealer shown on the application.  A salesman must apply for a new salesman's license if he changes or transfers from one dealer to another.  In lieu of applying for a new license, the salesman may transfer his license from one dealership to another upon application from the new dealer and the salesman and approval of the Board.  When a salesman leaves employment with a dealer, the dealer shall report this fact to the Board within 10 days thereafter.

(d)  The fee for a salesman's or temporary salesman's license shall be twenty five dollars ($25.00).  The temporary salesman's license fee shall apply toward the salesman's license fee if both licenses are issued in the same license year.  The fee for a salesman's license transfer application shall be fifteen dollars ($15.00).

(e)  A criminal history record check fee in the amount of fifty five dollars ($55.00) shall be submitted with each applicant application.
