FAQ: What happens If I don't complete the Georgia CE real estate course?

What happens If I don't complete the Georgia CE real estate course?

The Georgia Real Estate Commission requires all active licensed real estate brokers and salespersons to complete 36 hours of continuing education every four years.
If you fail to do so, your license is considered "lapsed" and must be reinstated.

A Reinstatement Application must be submitted along with a notarized Lawful Presence Verification form.

If your license has been lapsed for less than two years, you simply have to submit the Reinstatement Application and pay the required fee.
If your license has been lapsed between two and five years, you will have to either retake the 75-hour Georgia pre-license course, or retake the State exam, and pay the required fee.
If your license has been lapsed for more than five years, you will be required to retake the State exam, and pay the required fee.

If your license has been lapsed for less than one year, you have the option to complete the Reinstatement Application online and save $25 on the reinstatement fee.


The reinstatement fee equals the following:

  • If you submit the reinstatement application within four months of your license renewal date, the fee is $225.
  • If you submit the reinstatement application after four months of your license renewal date, the fee is $225, plus $25 for each month after this period.

If you hold an inactive license, you are not required to complete the continuing education credits. You simply have to pay the renewal fee.
