  • This license is required of individuals who are to be employed as salespersons under the supervision of a licensed broker. A license may also be obtained by a person who does not immediately intend to be employed by a broker. However, a salesperson without an employing broker may not perform acts requiring a license. The license authorizes real estate activity only if the salesperson is in the employ of a licensed broker.
  • Sections of the Business and Professions Code define the scope of a real estatebroker’s activity. Without a license, an individual cannot receive compensation for the performance ofany of the acts defined as being within the purview of a licensed broker or salesperson.
  • Experience — None required.
  • * Once qualified, an Examination Schedule Notice (RE 401A) or an authorization to self schedule will be sent to you.* Use the eLicensing online system to check your exam date or to self schedule.All qualification requirements must be met before you can be scheduled for the salesperson examination.If you are not qualified at the time you submit your application and fee, you will be notified in writing and you will have two years from the date of receipt of the application in which to complete the qualifications and take the examination. If you do not qualify for and pass the examination during the two-year period, the application will expire and you will need to submit a new application, fee and other required documents.
  • Members of the California State Bar are statutorily exempt from the college-level course requirements. Evidence of admission to practice Law in California must be furnished, such as photocopy of both sides of a California State Bar membership card.Members of any other State Bar as well as individuals holding an LL.B or J.D. degree who are not members of any State Bar, including CA, may generally qualify on the basis of education.
  • Courses must consist of three semester-units or four quarter-units at the college level. Courses must be completed at an institution of higher learning accred­ited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges or by a comparable regional accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education, or by a private real estate school which has had its courses approved by the California Real Estate Commissioner. Courses completed through foreign institutions of higher learning must be evaluated by a foreign cre­dentials evaluation service approved by the Depart­ment of Real Estate. See Examination Applicant Foreign Education Information (RE 223) available on the DRE Web site.Continuing education offerings do not satisfy the college-level course requirements for the salesper­son examination.Copies of official transcripts are generally accept­able evidence of completed courses. Transcripts of equivalent courses submitted as potential equivalent course of study in lieu of the statutory courses listed above must be accompanied by an official course or catalog description in order to be evaluated for equivalency.If you intend to request a review for acceptance of a course that is titled differently from the list of required courses, a copy of your official transcript should be submitted with your examination application and a copy of the course syllabus or a copy of the college’s catalog description (from the year of attendance for the course).
  • To pass the examination, you must correctly answer at least 70% of the questions. Since the examination is qualifying in nature, examinees who pass are not informed of their final score.The maximum time allowed to take the salesperson examination is a single 3-hour 15-minute session.The examination is multiple choice. Answers are selected from four choices. Cell phones cannot be used during the examination. You may use a silent, battery-operated, electronic, pocket-size calculator that does not have a print capability or an alphabetic keyboard. Cell phone calculators are not permitted.
  • Once you pass the examination and if you have not filed a Combination Examination/License application, a packet including a Salesperson License Application (RE 202) will be sent to you. Within one year of the date you pass the examination, you must apply for your salesperson license by submitting the following:Application — Completed Salesperson License Application (RE 202). Be sure to read all instructions and information before completing the application. Your social security number must be included to ensure fingerprint results are received by the DRE.

  • Applicants must be fingerprinted using a Live Scan service provider.
