Obtaining your Real Estate License In California :
The California Department of Real Estate (DRE) has guidelines that you must follow. RE License Solution recommends that you review all the requirements first.
For your convenience, we have posted the following as provided by the California DRE:
To obtain a real estate salesperson license, you must first qualify for and pass a written examination. Those who pass the real estate license exam are provided a license application which must be submitted to and approved by the DRE.
This license is required of individuals who conduct licensed real estate activities as described in the Real Estate Law under the supervision of a licensed broker. A license may also be obtained by a person who does not immediately intend to be employed by a broker. However, a salesperson without an employing broker may not perform acts requiring a real estate license.
The California DRE requires a minimum 18 day waiting period from receivership of course materials (and between each subsequent course) before final exam may be taken.
- Age: You must be 18 years of age or older to be issued a license.
- Residence: Proof of Legal Presence in the United States is required. If you are not a California resident, see Out-of-State Applicants.
- Honesty: Applicants must be honest and truthful.
- Experience: None required.
