How To Get Your Missouri Real Estate License Online in 5 Steps

Becoming licensed may seem like a daunting undertaking at first, but we’ve simplified the process for you. The CE Shop is a Missouri-approved real estate education provider that offers all the courses you need to pass your state exam. Follow these 5 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 completed after the first course, but can also be taken after the exam.

The CE Shop offers these mandatory courses through an advanced web-based platform called LEAP. LEAP combines straight-forward instruction from the classroom with the flexibility and convenience of online learning. We prepare you to complete your Missouri 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 minimum passing score is 75%.

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



Schedule, Take, and Pass Your Licensing Exam With PSI (Formerly AMP).

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



Complete the 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. For more information, 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 the licensing exam is passed, you may apply for your salesperson 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.
