Training as a car sales man/woman

If you are looking to go in to the car sales industry you will need to have a passion for cars and also a flare for selling. You will need to be confident and also not mind working weekends and bank holidays, which is often the busiest time in car sales.

If you have no experience in car sales then you will need to go on a certain amount of courses and receive in house training not only on sales techniques but also on the makes and models of cars that you will be selling. If you are going to work for a dealership that sells a number of different makes and models then you may not be able to learn the specifications of all the cars in detail, but you will need to know where you can find this information. Car sales jobs are often based a lot on commission so you will need to be able to sell in order to make decent money.
