FAQ: How can I get my Florida license through reciprocity?

How can I get my Florida license through reciprocity?

If you already hold a real estate license from a state that has a mutual recognition agreement with Florida, you will be exempt from the 63-hour pre-license education requirement and will only need to take the 40-question Florida laws section of the state exam. The exam consists of 40 questions and you will need a grade of 30 points or higher to pass.

As part of your application, you will need to provide a certificate of license history if you are claiming mutual recognition. You will also need to provide your license information on the Florida real estate sales associate license application. You cannot be a Florida resident at the time you are making your application for reciprocity. The exemptions also do not apply if you hold a license in one of these eight states through licensing reciprocity with another state.

As with all applicants, you will still need to meet the minimum age requirement, hold a high school diploma or equivalent, and have a Social Security number.
