Requirements for Real Estate Licensing in Florida

If you have a high school diploma or its equivalent, your Florida real estate career begins with a 63-hour sales associate pre-license course, its final exam, and then the state's real estate sales associate license exam. Then there's a sales associate 45-hour post-license course to be completed within the licensee's first renewal cycle. This cycle ends on your license expiration date (located at the bottom of your license.)

After you've completed the sales associate post-license course and have been licensed for at least 24 months, you can take the state's 72-hour broker pre-license course, its final exam, and then the state's real estate broker license exam. Once you pass the state exam, there's a broker 60-hour post-license course(s) (one or more broker post licensing courses, which total at least 60 classroom hours) to be completed within the licensee's first renewal cycle. This cycle ends on your license expiration date (located at the bottom of your license.)
