How to Get a Real Estate License in FL Online

There are 5 steps you need to take in order to get your Florida real estate sales associate license:


Step 1: Complete the Florida Real Estate Commission’s Education Requirement

First, you must complete the 63-hour Florida pre-license course.

At the end of the course is a closed-book, non-proctored final exam, which you must pass in order to get credit for the course.

The course final exam consists of 100 multiple-choice questions, with a passing grade of 70%.

The Florida Real Estate Commission allows up to 2 attempts at the course final exam.


Step 2: Apply to take the Florida Real Estate Exam

After you complete the 63-hour pre-license course, you must apply to the Florida Division of Real Estate (DRE) for authorization to take the state licensing exam.

Once the DRE approves your state licensing exam application, you will receive an Authorization Letter via email from Pearson VUE. Pearson VUE is the state testing center that administers the exam.

Your Authorization Letter will include your Candidate Identification number.

Once you receive your Authorization Letter, you can then schedule your state exam.

You can schedule your state exam by calling Pearson VUE at (888)204-6289.

You can also schedule your exam online at:
https://home.pearsonvue.com/fl/realestate.

You will need your Authorization Letter and Candidate Identification number in order to complete your exam reservation.

It is strongly recommended that you schedule your state exam at least 5 days prior to your exam date.


Step 3: Pass the State Licensing Exam

You must sit for the state licensing exam within 2 years of completing the 63-hour pre-license course.

You must present a copy of your Certificate of Completion from the 63-hour pre-license course when you arrive at the Pearson VUE testing center.

The state licensing exam consists of 100 multiple-choice questions with a passing grade of 75%.

There is a 3-1/2 hour time limit for the exam.

The state licensing exam fee is $36.75 per attempt, which is paid directly to Pearson VUE.

You will receive your exam results at the Pearson VUE testing center right after you complete the exam.


Step 4: Get Your Fingerprints Taken

You must get your fingerprints taken at an approved LiveScan Service Provider prior to applying for your Florida real estate sales associate license.

It is strongly recommended that you submit your fingerprints at least 5 days prior to submitting your license application.

Your fingerprints will be used by the Florida DBPR to run a background check.

When submitting your fingerprints, you must include your social security number and the following ORI number: FL920010Z.

The cost to get your fingerprints taken ranges from $50 - $80, depending on which LiveScan location you use.


Step 5: Apply for Your Active Florida Real Estate Sales Associate License

Once you pass the state licensing exam and complete your background check, you will be able to download and print your inactive Florida real estate sales associate license online through the DBPR website.

Please note, you will not be able to practice as a sales associate until you are issued an active license.

In order to be eligible to receive an active Florida real estate sales associate license, you must have a sponsoring broker.

You can apply for your active license online using the DBPR’s Online Services.

Or, you can apply using a paper application.

The application fee is $83.75.


The following requirements also apply:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age.
  • A high school diploma or equivalent is required to apply for a real estate license.
  • You must have a U.S. Social Security number.
