    1. Hi Kevin,
      Yes you can take the dealer exam at any stage during the application process. Just take your dmv certification with you.

    2. Kevin, that is correct. You can schedule the dealer exam at any time after receiving your DMV pre licensing certificate (valid for 1 yr from date of issuance)
