Requirements to Obtain a Salesperson License:

Be at least 18 years of age
Provide proof of completion in 135 hours of required education (45 credit hours in Real Estate Principles; 45 credit hours in Real Estate Practice course; and 45 credit hours in one additional state approved course).
Pass the salespersons exam.
After passing the examination, you will be sent a Salesperson License Application. Within one year of the examination date this form must be completed and returned along with the licensing fee. Also submit your Live Scan Request form (RE237: Required to submit to DRE).
We recommend completing a combo licensing/exam application, get fingerprinted, and submit all fees right away. This will speed up your application process.
A salesperson is licensed to act on behalf of a broker, and may not act as a real estate agent independently. A salesperson may only work for one broker in California at a time. California does not require an applicant for a salesperson’s license to have a high school diploma or college degree. There is also no state residency requirement.
