A 65-year old Elizabeth South man has been fined $3250, after admitting to selling used cars without a licence.
Under South Australian consumer protection laws, people need a second hand vehicle dealer’s licence if they sell more than four cars over a 12 month period.
In the Elizabeth Magistrates Court, Gary Williams admitted to selling 17 used cars within a 12 month period, and breaching an earlier undertaking to refrain from selling second hand vehicles.
The court heard each of the cars was worth less than $1000, and the level of profit was minimal.
Williams was fined $3250.
