To start,

  • You must be at least 18 years of age.
  • You must have a United States Social Security number.
  • You must hold a high school diploma or its equivalent.

  1. Complete 63 hours of approved Pre-Licensing education.

  2. Pass the course final exam.

    After you complete all the course materials, meet the minimum time requirement, and pass the practice exam, there is a course final exam. The minimum passing score is 70%. Within one year of the original examination, you may retest once. Beyond that, if you fail the final exam, you must repeat the course prior to being eligible to take the test again.

  3. Pass the Florida Real Estate Salesperson Exam.

    Next you must take and pass the Florida licensing exam, which is administered by Pearson VUE. This test is comprised of two portions, covering both state and national requirements. For more information, see the Pearson VUE Candidate Exam Information here.

  4. Complete the application for licensure.

    After passing the licensing exam, you must submit a fingerprinted-based federal and state criminal background check and complete an official license application.
