Jan 11, 2024

Dealers are required to collect an administrative fee of $0.50 from each consumer who purchases a used motor vehicle in the State of New Jersey. Dealers are required to mail to the Used Car Lemon Law Unit, the following:

  • A check or money order made payable to the “New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs,” in an amount equal to the total sum of administrative fees collected during the preceding calendar year; and
  • A completed “Certification of Administrative Fees” form indicating the number of used cars sold each month by the dealer during the preceding calendar year.

Dealers are reminded that the Director of the Division of Consumer Affairs may conduct random audits of dealers’ records to assure compliance with the Act. A copy of the Certification of Administrative Fees can be found HERE.

If dealers have questions about this topic or any other questions, they should contact Greyson P. Hannigan, NJ CAR’s Director of Legal & Regulatory Affairs at 609.883.5056, x340 or, via email, at [email protected].
