Broker Pre-License Course

REAL ESTATE BROKER EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS

To become a broker in the State of Florida, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Experience: Held an active real estate sales associate’s license for at least 24 months during the preceding 5 years in the office of one or more real estate brokers, or been an active broker in another state for at least 24 months during the preceding 5 years. Remember, out of state real estate experience counts towards the experience requirement for the Florida broker’s license.
  • Satisfactorily complete a broker pre-license course prescribed by the Florida Real Estate Commission.

Note: All Florida Real Estate Sales Associate’s must complete the post-license education requirement prior to becoming eligible for licensure as a Broker.

STATE EXAMINATION:

A computerized state examination is required of all applicants. Once a state application is approved, and the pre-license course is completed, the student can then schedule a testing appointment to take the state exam.

 

Application for licensure must be made to the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Division of Real Estate (allow approximately 2-4 weeks for application approval).

WE SUGGEST SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION AT THE TIME YOU REGISTER FOR A CLASS
The applicant will be notified when approved for examination. Once an application is approved and the pre-license course is completed, the applicant is able to sit for the state examination. There are 15 testing locations throughout the state of Florida, with testing at northwest Florida locations in Pensacola and Tallahassee Monday through Saturday.

All Florida applicants are required to submit fingerprints in an electronic format (non-Florida applicants submit a fingerprint card). To download the application or apply online and obtain additional information on the electronic fingerprinting requirement please use the following links:
