FAQ: How do I get my NC real estate license reinstated once it has expired?

How do I get my NC real estate license reinstated once it has expired?

If your provisional broker license has expired, you can take steps to bring it back into active status. The remedy depends entirely on how long your license has been expired:

  • 6 month or less: No additional education or exam requirements apply. You must pay a $90 reinstatement fee on the North Carolina Real Estate Commission website on or before December 31 of the year it lapsed. Once paid, your license will no longer be considered expired, but it will be in inactive status. You will need to correct all continuing education deficiencies, affiliate with a broker-in-charge and submit form REC 2.08.

  • More than 6 month and less than 2 years: You will need to successfully complete one post-licensing course within 6 months prior to submitting a reinstatement application or retake and pass the national and state sections of the state license exam. In addition, you will need to file a reinstatement application online at the Commission’s website and pay the appropriate fee on or before June 30 on the second year your license has expired. If you choose to take a post-licensing course, it must be completed before you can request reinstatement. Your license will be returned in inactive status. You will need to affiliate with a broker-in-charge and submit form REC 2.08.

  • More than 2 years: If you’ve let your license remain expired for more than two years, you will need to begin by completing the 75-hour North Carolina broker pre-license course and pass both sections of the state license exam. You will need to complete the 75-hour North Carolina broker pre-license course within 3 years of submitting your reinstatement application online. Once you have completed the course, you must file the reinstatement application, applicable fee and criminal background check. Once processed, you will receive instructions for registering for the state exam. Once active, you will need to affiliate with a broker-in-charge and submit form REC 2.08.
