Delaware Salesperson Pre-Licensing How to Become a DE Real Estate Agent

5 Steps Toward Getting Your Delaware Salesperson License

Getting licensed for your new career might seem a bit daunting, but we’re here to guide you through the process. Read on to learn the five steps you’ll need to take before starting your career in Delaware real estate.



  1. Complete 99 hours of approved Pre-Licensing education.

    Candidates must successfully take 99 hours of Pre-Licensing courses from an approved Delaware Real Estate Commission real estate education provider like The CE Shop.

    The course work includes a math pre-test for those students who wish to exempt themselves from the math portion of this course. This optional math pre-test is equivalent to the final test given at the conclusion of the math section in content and length. The content of the pre-test covers each of the topics covered in the course. A passing score of 80% shall exempt a student from taking the math section of this course.

    The CE Shop offers coursework through its advanced online learning platform, designed specifically for aspiring and existing real estate professionals. Satisfy the Pre-Licensing education requirement and prepare for your licensing exam with our industry-leading course.

  2. Pass the course final exam.

    Once you complete all course materials and meet the minimum time requirement, there is a course final exam. The minimum passing score is 80%.

  3. Pass the Delaware Real Estate Salesperson Examination.

    You'll next take and pass the Delaware Real Estate Salesperson Exam, which is administerd by Pearson VUE. This 130-question test is comprised of two portions, covering both state and national requirements. For more information, see the Pearson VUE Candidate Handbook.

  4. Select a sponsoring broker.

    To be licensed, you must first be associated with a current and active Delaware sponsoring broker. It's important to find the right broker to work with, since this person will serve as your mentor as you start your new career in real estate. Here are some questions to consider during your search:

    • What is their reputation, both locally and nationally?
    • What kind of real estate agents are they looking for?
    • Are they technologically advanced and up-to-date with the latest systems?
    • How do they support their agents with education and training?
    • What kind of commission structure do they offer?
    • Do they offer benefits?
    • Do they provide their agents with leads and marketing material?
    • Is there room to grow with the brokerage?
  5. Complete the application for licensure.

    All licensees must complete and submit a salesperson application to the Delaware Real Estate Commission. You can do so on their website here.
