FAQ: How can I get my Florida license if I'm licensed in another state?

How can I get my Florida license if I'm licensed in another state?

As a nonresident, you will need to meet the same eligibility, education and exam requirements as any Florida resident, unless you live in one of the eight states in which Florida has real estate licensing reciprocity. These states include Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Mississippi, Nebraska and Rhode Island. You cannot claim license reciprocity if you live in Florida or if you received your license in one of these eight states due to another state’s reciprocity agreement.
