Each and every lot operated or proposed to be operated by the Georgia licensee for any period to exceed ninety-six (96) consecutive hours, which is not located immediately adjacent to the licensee's established place of business, must have its own supplemental license, and no supplemental license shall extend to more than one lot.

1. the licensee's license number;
2. photographs of the proposed location for the supplemental license;
3. proof that a business license can be obtained from the municipality or county wherein lies the proposed location or proof that no such license is required.
(3) A used motor vehicle dealer may engage in the used car business at a temporary site for a period not to exceed ninety-six (96) consecutive hours in a 30-day period of time. Any licensed dealer who proposes to conduct a sale on a temporary site must submit a complete application for a temporary site sale permit with the Board at least 60 days prior to the proposed starting date of the temporary site sale. A complete application will include the appropriate fee as listed on the application, a copy of the written notice(s) required by this rule to be given to each purchaser of a vehicle at the temporary site sales, written documentation demonstrating that the dealer has complied with any licensing requirements applicable in the local jurisdiction in which the temporary site sale will occur, and a copy of a written agreement with the owner of the real property where this sale will occur. A separate application and fee must be submitted for every temporary site sale. The approved permit shall be forwarded to the licensed dealer prior to the proposed starting date of the sale. The dealer shall be required to post the approved permit in a conspicuous place at the temporary site sale. A used motor vehicle dealer may not operate at a temporary site more than three times in any one calendar year. The temporary site must be located within one county of the county of the dealer's established place of business.
