For those involved in buying, selling, or trading petroleum in any way, a petroleum dealers license is required. If you’re involved in the following, or any other type of business that involves petroleum, contact your state’s business licenses, permits & tax department to find out what you need to get your license:

  • Retail meters, like at gas stations
  • High speed or wholesale meters
  • LPG or propane meters

If you’re interested in becoming a petroleum device technician or scale technician, you may need a different type of petroleum license to start a business, so ask your state’s business license officials what’s involved.

Do You Need Training?

If you plan to work in propane, your state may require you to take a certain number of educational courses to ensure you’re up to speed on the industry, as well as continuing education courses to maintain your petroleum dealers license.

Other industries within petroleum may not require training for the petroleum license.

Applying for Your Petroleum Dealers License

The business license application process is fairly simple. On the application, you’ll be required to fill out information about your business and location, as well as your Federal Tax ID number and evidence of liability insurance coverage.

You will also need to register all trucks involved in the petroleum business, including make, model and registration information.

If you don’t keep your petroleum dealers license renewed annually, your state’s Department of Weights and Measures may remove all Weighing and Measuring Devices from your company, rendering your business unable to operate until you pay the gas license fee and renew it.
