Who Must Obtain a Real
A Real Estate License is
required of individuals who are to be employed as salespersons under the
control and supervision of a licensed broker. A license may be obtained by a
person who does not immediately intend to be employed by a broker. However, in this
instance, no real estate activity may be performed. The license authorizes real
estate activity only if the salesperson is in the employ of a licensed broker.
It does not authorize the salesperson to act as an independent agent.
Minimum Requirements to
Apply for License
Age: 18 years of age or older.
Honesty: Conviction of a crime which is either a felony or
involves moral turpitude may result in the denial of a license. The failure to
reveal a criminal conviction on an original license application may also result
in the denial of a license.
Education: Evidence of successful completion of the three
qualifying courses is required.
Experience: None required.
There is a $60 test fee
required when you apply for the state examination. The license fee is $245.
One set of classifiable
electronic fingerprints and a fingerprint processing fee are required from
every license applicant. Original license applicants who reside in California
will pay a $49 fingerprint processing fee directly to the live scan fingerprint
STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS TO
COMPLETE THE PROGRAM
STEP 1: Complete Qualifying Courses
All three pre-license courses
are required by the California Bureau of Real Estate before you can apply for
the state exam. They are designed to give you a basic understanding of the
necessary subjects and a foundation of real estate terminology.
STEP 2: Apply for State Exam
Once you have successfully
completed all three required courses, it is time to apply for the state exam by
mailing the Salesperson Examination Application (RE 400A) to the CalBRE along
with proof of completion of the required courses and the $60 examination fee.
CalBRE processing time for state exam applications is 4-6 weeks.
STEP 3: Work on the Practice Tests
If you enroll in our complete
pre-license package, you will receive both written and online practice tests
called California Final Briefing Examinations. This is the most important phase
of your studying. Now that you have a foundation of knowledge from the
pre-license courses, you will now study the subject matter in more detail by
looking at sample state exam questions. Your goal is to take and retake these
sample exams until you are scoring 90% or better (in each category) before
taking the actual state examination. Concentrate on learning the subjects
rather than memorizing the questions.
STEP 4: Attend Our Weekend Crash Course
This Live 2-Day Weekend Crash
Course is specifically designed to help you pass the state examination. It is
to be taken the weekend before your state exam test date. If you enrolled
in our complete pre-license package, you have prepaid for the weekend crash
course. Call us to talk about scheduling the crash course before you send
your application to the California Bureau of Real Estate.
The California Bureau of Real
Estate allows a course to be completed in a minimum time of 2 ½ weeks PER
COURSE (18 calendar days) from the date you receive your material. The
maximum time is one year from the date of enrollment. Completion means passing
each course final examination.
Once you have successfully
completed all three course final exams, we will send you an official Course
Completion Certificate. From the day you mail your application to the CalBRE,
it usually takes 4 to 6 weeks to get a state exam test date.
