How to Get Your Florida Real Estate License

In Florida, as in other states, to qualify for a real estate license you will need to be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or GED. You will also need to provide your social security number, a background check and your fingerprints to the Florida Real Estate Commission (FREC).

Florida also has pre-licensing and post-licensing education requirements. Before you can obtain a real estate license in the state of Florida, you will have to complete at least 63 hours of approved real estate education.

Once you’ve completed your pre-license education and background requirements, you will now be allowed to take the state exam (which costs $105). Upon successful completion (75% or higher) of the Florida state real estate exam, you will now be eligible to activate your license.

Once you have acquired your Florida real estate agent license, you will need to take the 45-hour post-license education requirements during your renewal period, before the license is set to expire.
