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

How do I get my PA real estate salespersons license?

In order to obtain your Pennsylvania real estate salesperson's license, you must complete the following steps:

Step 1: Complete the 75-hour Pennsylvania Pre-license Course
The 75-hour pre-license course actually consists of two courses:
1) 30-hour Real Estate Fundamentals course
2) 45-hour Real Estate Practice course

The courses can be completed online or in a classroom. Most students prefer to take the courses online since they can typically complete the courses more quickly.
The Pennsylvania Real Estate Commission may waive the 75-hour education requirement if you meet one of the following:
1) Successfully completed at least 75-hours of pre-license real estate education in another state.
2) Hold a bachelor's degree with a major in real estate from an accredited college or university.
3) Hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university, having completed coursework equivalent to a major in real estate.
4) Hold a juris doctor degree from an accredited law school.

Step 2: Schedule and Pass the State Exam
The state licensing exam is an in-person proctored exam that must be taken through PSI.
You can schedule your state exam by submitting PSI's Examination Registration Form along with your two Certificates of Completion (one from the 30-hour Real Estate Fundamentals course and another from the 45-hour Real Estate Practice course).
Once your state exam application is reviewed and approved, PSI will send you an eligibility notice.
At this point, you can schedule your exam date and location with PSI.
The state exam consists of a national portion and a state portion.
You must pass both portions in order to pass the overall exam.

Step 3: Complete a Criminal Record Check
The Pennsylvania Real Estate Commission requires all applicants to complete a criminal record check.

Step 4: Apply For Your License With the Help of Your Employing Broker
You must apply for your license online through Pennsylvania's PALS system.
State law requires all real estate salespersons to work under an employing broker.
Once you complete your license application and upload the required documents, your employing broker will have to log in and complete their portion of the application.
Once your application is approved, you will receive your license in the mail (at your broker's main office) within 7-10 business days.

Congratulations, you are now a licensed Pennsylvania real estate salesperson!
