FAQ: How do I get my Michigan real estate salespersons license?

How do I get my Michigan real estate salespersons license?

There are 4 steps you need to take to get your Michigan real estate salespersons license.

Step #1: Complete the 40-hour pre-license course
First, you must complete the 40-hour Michigan salespersons course (pre-license course).
The course must be approved by the Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA).
At the end of the course is a final exam. Once you pass the final exam, you will earn your Certificate of Completion for the course.
Your school will then notify LARA that you have completed the pre-license course.

Step #2: Apply for your Michigan real estate salespersons license through iCOLA.
First, you must setup your free iCOLA account through the Michigan.gov website.
Once your iCOLA account is setup, you can apply for your Michigan real estate salespersons license and pay the application fee.
If you have a sponsoring broker, they can then log in to their iCOLA account and confirm that you will work under them after you pass the state exam.
Once your application is approved, you will receive an email from the State of Michigan notifying you of your authorization to register for the state exam.
LARA will then notify PSI that you are eligible to schedule your state exam.

Step #3: Schedule your state exam
You must take the state exam at a PSI testing center.
You can schedule your state exam online through the PSI website or by phone.

Step #4: Pass the state exam
The Michigan state licensing exam consists of 115 multiple-choice questions. You must answer at least 80 questions correctly in order to pass (70%).
If your sponsoring broker confirmed your sponsorship through iCOLA, you will receive a pocket license at the PSI testing site right after you pass the state exam. This will allow you to start working as a real estate salesperson immediately.
If you passed the state exam, your exam information will be imported into your iCOLA account within 48 business hours. Once LARA receives your passing exam score from PSI, they will mail your sponsoring broker a state-issued paper wall license and a pocket card. This process can take up to two weeks.
If you do not have a sponsoring broker, or your broker still did not confirm your sponsorship through iCOLA, you will have up to one year to have your broker submit a Employing Broker Notification form, otherwise, you will have to submit a new license application and pay another license application fee.
