updated june 2023

Before You Start

Whether you’re a sales associate or a broker, you need to renew your real estate license every two years. The renewal deadline is always either midnight on March 31 or midnight on September 3. If you do not renew by the deadline, you will be required to undergo all of the pre-licensing steps before you can act as an agent again.

Sales associates and brokers must attend a specific number of hours of field-relevent courses every two years. These are known as CEUs, and the number you need depends on the type of license you’re holding.

Sales Associates: 45 hours
Brokers: 60 hours

Step 2. Create or log into an online Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) account.

You can create or access your existing Department of Business & Professional Regulation (DBPR) account here. You can view the DBPR’s official account setup instructions here.

Step 3. Link your current license to your account.

To access the DBPR’s online services, which include license renewals, applications, and license status tracking, you must link your current license to it.
