DC DMV, at its discretion, may conduct on- or off-site dealership audits to ensure that a dealership is complying with DC regulations. Dealers found to be in violation of DC regulations will be fined up to $1,000 for each violation, or will have their dealership registration suspended or revoked. Any dealership whose registration has been suspended or revoked must return all:
- Dealer tags
- Title reassignment forms
- Temporary registration certificates
to DC DMV within 5 business days of the suspension or revocation notice.
