What Are The Georgia Real Estate License Requirements?
You must successfully complete 75 hours of Georgia Real Estate Licensing Course. Once you complete the course and pass the proctored final exam, you are now ready to move on to Step #2… get your GCIC.
Prior to taking your state exam, you must obtain a Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC) report of your criminal history. You can receive this report from any local sheriff’s office or police department. The report may cost up to $25 and is valid for up to 60 days from the date of issue. You must bring this to the AMP testing center prior to receiving a license.
You must register and pass the salesperson’s exam with the exam provider, Applied Measurement Professionals, Inc. (AMP). You will be paying an exam fee of $115. More information about the exam can be found on GREC's website.
You are required to take your Lawful Presence Notarized Affidavit and “secure and verifiable document” with you to the exam. To schedule your exam and to receive a copy of the required affidavit, you may visit the AMP website at www.goamp.com.
Your exam scores are valid for one year, meaning you must apply for your license within one year of your initial examination date.
The final step is to complete your real estate salesperson license application. The Georgia Real Estate Commission encourages students to complete their application online as it helps expedite the approval process.
Once your application is approved, your license will be mailed to your sponsoring broker.
