FLORIDA REQUIREMENTS FOR REAL ESTATE LICENSING
NOTE: Each student must be fingerprinted electronically through Pearson Vue (not the Sheriffâ€™s Department), 5 DAYS LATER send in a state application, to be approved to take the state exam. We recommend that you do this ahead of time because it usually takes four to six weeks to be approved, longer if you have background issues.
You DO NOT have to be approved by the state to take the school course. However, you cannot take or schedule the State exam until you are approved.
THE DIVISION OF REAL ESTATE: Florida Statutes require that real estate sales associates and brokers complete courses that have been approved by the Division of Real Estate prior to sitting for state exams. The Bob Fritze School of Real Estate is approved by the DRE permit #ZH1000536. Our school is approved to teach live and on line all Pre, Post and CE courses.
SALES ASSOCIATE PRE AND POST LICENSING: Florida Statutes require that individuals complete 63 hour Pre licensing course prior to sitting for the State Sales Associates exam. After successfully passing the State Sales Associate Pre Licensing exam, within the first licensing period, which is approximately 2 years, each licensee must complete a 45-hour post-licensing course to continue to be licensed.
BROKER PRE AND POST LICENSING: Florida statutes require that individuals seeking a Broker's license first must have completed all requirements for a Sales Associate Pre and Sales Associate Post license courses and the Broker Pre License Course and 24 month active license experience with one or more brokers during the proceeding 5 years.
