How To Get Your Missouri Real Estate License in 5 Steps

Becoming licensed may seem like a daunting undertaking at first, but we’ve demystified the process for you. Follow these simple steps to get started today!



Complete Pre-Licensing education.

First-time licensee candidates in Missouri are required to take two Pre-Licensing courses. The first is a 48-hour salesperson course, which must be completed before you take the licensing exam. The second course is a 24-hour Real Estate Practice Course which must be taken after the first, but can be taken after the exam. 

The CE Shop offers these mandatory courses through its advanced web-based platform, where the best of the classroom is combined with the flexibility and convenience of online learning. We prepare you to complete your licensing exam while providing you with the knowledge you need to begin a promising career in real estate.

Complete the course final exam.

After you complete all the course materials, meet the minimum time requirement, and pass the practice exam, there is a final exam. The passing score is 75%.

You do not need to take this in the presence of a proctor.



Schedule, take, and pass your licensing exam with Applied Measurement Professionals, Inc. (AMP).

The Missouri Division of Professional Registration (DPR) Real Estate Commission contracts with AMP, a PSI company, to facilitate and administer the salesperson licensing exam. For more information, please see the AMP Missouri Candidate Handbook.



Complete fingerprint requirement.

As of January 1, 2011, all applicants for a salesperson and broker's license will need to be fingerprinted. The fingerprinting is being handled by 3M/Cogent. To get more information, you can call the Missouri Real Estate Commission at 573-751-2628. To begin the process, new applicants must register with the Missouri Automated Criminal History Site (MACHS).



Complete the Application for License.

Once the eligibility requirements are completed and licensing exam is passed, you may apply for your salesperson’s license. You must submit the completed application within six months of the date of your 48-hour pre-examination course completion. The application can be found on the DPR Real Estate Commission website.
