Real Estate License Course

Step 1. Complete
your pre-licensing education

As a prospective agent, you’re required to take real estate pre-licensing courses from an approved licensing school (like us!). Once you’ve completed courses, be sure to obtain your official transcripts or certificate of completion; this is required to complete your real estate license application.

Step 2. Pass
your real estate exam

Once you’ve completed pre-licensing courses and passed the final exam, it’s time to schedule your state licensing real estate exam. Likely, you’ll encounter questions on this exam that you didn’t cover in pre-licensing curriculum, so be sure to look for exam prep programs that will highlight practice questions for your state.

OUR CAREER HUB CAN HELP

Complete your real estate pre-licensing education

Once you understand your state's licensing and education requirements, you'll need to complete your real estate pre-license course. Keep in mind:

  • It's important to enroll in an accredited school, licensed in your state
  • If you have a degree in real estate, are a licensed attorney, or have a real estate license in another state, your education requirements may be different. Please contact your state Real Estate Commission to learn those requirements.
  • Upon course completion, it's important to obtain your official real estate transcripts or a certification of completion from the school, which will be required for your license application. These can be printed from home in most states.
File the application and pay the fees

To obtain your real estate license, you must complete your state's real estate license application and pay any applicable fees. Most states have forms and fee information on their website. Real Estate Express customers may access their Student Tools for important information and links to resources. When it comes to filing the application and paying the fees, you'll need to know the following:

  • Filing date deadline
  • If you are required to obtain Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance prior to applying
  • If you need to provide a background check and fingerprinting prior to applying
  • If you need to have a sponsoring or managing broker in place before you submit your application
