I invite your kind attention to the applicability clause u/s 1(4) and the definition of the term " establishment " u/s 2(1)(d) of the CLRA Act,1970 respectively. Being an automobile dealership engaged in the sales and service, your establishment certainly comes under the purview of the above Act. It is not only Govt. agencies but Govt establishments also come under the Act. Therefore, you have to get yourself registered as a Principal Employer under the Act.
The contractor's licence contemplated under the Act is both establishment- specific and work- specific being granted on the strength of the form given by the Principal Employer both work-wise and contractor-wise and as such non-transferable. So the labor licence mentioned in your post is irrelevant to your establishment.

So for all practical purposes, for engaging outside agencies for designated job works, we have to get ourselves registered as the Principal Employer in the prescribed form, issue Form V to the agencies for getting labour licence (even though they are having labour licence of their own) under the Contract Labour Act.
Also let us know the details involving the necessary statutory compliances for our reference.
