Re: R dealerships required to ask **bleep**

There were a lot of posts about this a while back.  I can't say I remember the details exactly, but if I recall, the Patrior Act does require some sort of identity verification.  And a dealer can choose to do that by pulling a credit report.  They don't have to, but if that is their policy for how they go about it, I'm not sure what you can do.  So that is why you might be getting some conflicting answers.  Some people may have gone to dealers that do the identity verification another way.
