Getting an auto dealer license just to access dealer only auctions- worth it?

Are there significant savings at dealer-only options for used cars? Enough to make the effort and cost of getting a dealer licence worth it?

I drive past ADESA
often, a HUGE car auction setup with super high turnover. I've learned they take fleet, trade in cars, and lease returns off people's hands and sell them off to used car dealers.
In order to bid, I need to have a BC dealer license
. It looks to be several nights of work, 2 days of courses, and $500. Kind of interesting stuff, especially if it pays for ittself and more.
Is the BC auto dealer license much trouble to get?
Are the bid values at these dealer-only auctions obscenely low compaired to the open market/buysell?
Are there tax/regulatory restrictions to getting a license and buying a car for yourself?
Is it worth the trouble?
