You will need this licence if you intend to act as an auctioneer under the direct supervision and instruction of a licensed auctioneer. Auctioneers are people who sell or offer for sale or resale properties or other items by way of auction. The holder of a general licence, restricted licence or the firm or corporation with whom you intend to be supervised by, must apply for and obtain a provisional licence on your behalf.
A provisional licence allows you to act as an auctioneer under supervision for a period up to two months and can only be granted up to three times per year. Classes of business auctioneers may operate in include:
- motor vehicles
- second hand items
- any other specified kind of commodity as determined by the Agency
