  • • The applicant or licensee has failed to pay funds or property received in the course of employment to a dealer entitled thereto.
  • • The applicant or licensee has failed to surrender possession of, or failed to return, any vehicle to a dealer lawfully entitled thereto upon termination of employment.
  • • A cause for refusal, suspension, or revocation exists under any provision of Sections 11302 to 11909, inclusive.
  • • The applicant was previously the holder of an occupational license issued by another state authorizing the same or similar activities of a license issued under this division; and that license was revoked or suspended for cause and was never reissued, or was suspended for cause, and the terms of suspension have not been fulfilled.
  • • The applicant or licensee has acted as a dealer by purchasing or selling vehicles while employed by a licensed dealer without reporting that fact to the dealer or without utilizing the report of sale documents issued to the dealer.
  • • The applicant or licensee has acted as a vehicle salesperson or engaged in that activity for, or on behalf of, more than one licensed dealer whose business does not have identical ownership and structure.
