About Us

TriStar Motors LLC started in San Francisco in 1998 as a way to collect & resell vehicles donated to help Officer Tom Kracke, a fellow officer overcome with bone marrow cancer and a fighter to his last day.

TriStar Motors founders Perini, Garriott & Weatherman completed the first year required DMV course and the clever retired beat cops of Central Station went to work building a better way to train used car dealers and raise money for charity.

” Did you get something free today ? ” took on a whole new meaning.

After all our methods worked on cops in training, and who could be harder to train than salty old Central Station beat cops.

TriStar Motors LLC has been providing quality dealer education to dealer license applicants ever since. TriStar employs over 12 experienced instructors and does all kinds of awesome & creative things for the used car dealer community.
