An auto auction license is not necessary for buying a car at an auction. Generally there are two types of auto auctions, dealer only auctions and public auctions. In order to purchase a car at a dealer only auction, a person needs to be a licensed dealer. Depending on the specific public auction there might be other requirements. Though, federal auto auctions are pretty clear cut in terms of their restrictions. Any licensed driver at least eighteen years of age can purchase a car at a federal auto auction. Licensed dealers, though, can generally avoid sales tax when buying at public auctions.
