Are you ready to begin your new career as a Florida real estate agent? The CE Shop has everything you need to get started and set up for success.

Hi, I’m Michael with The CE Shop, here to tell you that getting your Florida real estate license is as easy as following these six steps.

Step 1: Education

First-time licensee candidates in Florida must be at least 18 years of age with a high school diploma or its equivalent. All candidates are required to take 63 hours of Pre-Licensing education. This course can be taken in person or online in a convenient do-at-your-own-pace format such as the program offered by The CE Shop.

Step 2: Course Final

After you complete all course materials and meet the minimum time requirement, we’ll prepare you for the final with a practice exam. This final exam is comprised of 100 questions and the minimum passing score is 70%.

Step 3: Application

Once you pass your course final exam, you next will submit the Sale Associate License Application and your fingerprints to the DBPR Division of Real Estate.

Step 4: Pass Your Exam

Once the Florida DBPR processes and accepts your application, they will notify you that you’re eligible to sit for the state licensing exam. The DBPR employs Pearson VUE to manage all exam scheduling and test administration. Click here [motion to a link] for more information on Florida real estate licensing testing.

Step 5: Sponsor

As you go through the process of earning your Florida real estate sales associate license, you’ll need to find a sponsoring broker to support you. Once licensed, this is the person you’ll work for, and a key factor to becoming a successful real estate agent is finding the right broker to work with and mentor you.

Step 6: Your License

Once the Florida DBPR approves your application, they will issue you your new Florida real estate sales associate license. Your license will remain inactive until activated by your qualified sponsoring broker. With your new license, a great mentor, and the Florida real estate knowledge gained from your Pre-Licensing education, you’re now ready to begin your new career.
