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

How can I get my Florida license through reciprocity?

A licensee from a state with a mutual recognition agreement is recognized as a licensee in Florida, with certain conditions. The applicant for a Florida real estate license from one of these states should check with his/her state for information about obtaining a Florida license.

The State of Florida requires applicants to be 18 years of age, hold a high school diploma (or a GED, or its equivalent), and not be a resident of Florida at the time of application. Applicants must have a valid and active real estate license, in good standing, issued by a real estate licensing agency in the applicant's home state.

The purpose of a mutual recognition agreement is to formally recognize the education and experience a real estate licensee has acquired in another jurisdiction.

Mutual recognition agreements apply to nonresidents licensed in other jurisdictions.

Additionally, a non-Florida resident from one of the eight states with an existing mutual recognition agreement must complete the 'Mutual Recognition Application’ for Non-FL Residents found on the DBPR website.

Candidates must take the Florida Real Estate Law Exam with a minimum passing grade of 30 and submit a certified license history generated from the applicant's home state.
