The PA Real Estate Commission uses your criminal check as a basis to accept or deny your license application.
We recommend waiting until after you have passed the Pennsylvania state licensing exam.
PA residents can obtain their criminal record check through the state police's PATCH website.
The fee is $22 if you obtain your criminal record check through the PATCH website.
It may take up to 3 weeks to receive your criminal record check.
The Commission will use your criminal record check to see if you have any prior convictions or criminal activity.
