I just went through this process and there are other ways to qualify to become a dealer. Being a salesperson for two years is one way to qualify but you can also qualify with 0 years experience if you have a 4 year degree at an accredited university.
There is a whole list of qualification requirements that should be included with your dealer packet. If you are having a problem getting through to HCD you can try calling this number (916) 323-9803 and ask for Arlene. She is located in Sacramento and was extremely helpful when I was getting my dealer license.
Feel free to email me if you have any other questions about this because this is all fresh in my mind
