FAQ: How can I get my Georgia license if I'm licensed in another State?
The State of Georgia will allow you to apply for your Georgia real estate license if you meet the following criteria:
1) You have passed the State real estate exam in the State you are currently licensed in;
2) You currently hold a real estate license that is in good standing (meaning it has not lapsed or expired).
If you meet these requirements, you simply have to submit an Application for Reciprocity License, and include the following documents with your application:
- A notarized Lawful Presence Verification form.
- A non-refundable fee of $170.
- A certified copy of the licensing history from the State Licensing Board of your residence (which is used to verify that your license is in good standing).
- A criminal history report or a Georgia Criminal Information Center Report (GCIC).
- A certified copy of any disciplinary actions taken against your license.
Please note that once you obtain a Georgia real estate license through reciprocity, you are required to complete the 25-hour post-license course within the first year of licensure. You can either take the 25-hour Georgia post-license course, or an equivalent course from your local State. If you fail to meet this requirement, you license will be considered lapsed and must be reinstated.
In addition, if you obtain an active Georgia real estate license, you must complete at least 36 hours of approved continuing education within the four-year renewal period.
If you are applying for reciprocity with a Florida license, you must take and pass the Georgia Supplement Exam.
You can learn more about the Georgia Supplement Exam in the PSI Georgia Candidate Handbook.
