How to Get a California Real Estate License
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 (for submitting fingerprints).
- 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.

Statutory Course Important Note:
Per California Bureau of Real Estate guidelines, Statutory Courses require a wait period of 18 days before attempting a Final Exam. Additional exams will become available as the mandated 18 day wait period expires. You cannot apply one 18 day wait period to meet the wait time for all Statutory courses. Our Learning Management System will track your wait period time.
