The amount of time it takes to get a real estate license is a question most people ask before you consider taking a pre-licensing course. Getting a real estate license doesn’t happen overnight, and it also doesn’t take as long as some other professional licenses. On average it takes at least 4-7 months to get a real estate license in a physical classroom. If you decide to take your real estate pre-licensing course online, it can take as little as 2 months depending on how fast you’re willing to move. There are several factors that can either speed up or slow down real estate licensing.  

Each state has its own requirement and timeframe for the completion of the pre-licensing course. State real estate guidelines typically require that a person take a specific pre-licensing course or series of courses before taking a real estate exam with each of these options having different timeframe. For example, Florida requires 63 training hours before taking an salespersons licensing exam. In California, you need almost double that - 135 hours of college-level courses. 

You can verify the number of education hours required in your state by choosing your state on the state licensing requirements tab. 

You can either take the course online, virtually or by attending a physical classroom. In-person classes at a real estate school like Agent Real Estate Schools, will be taken over the course of a semester. Our online courses also allow you to go at your own pace and can be completed in weeks rather than months. At Agent Real Estate Schools, you can easily earn your salesperson or broker’s real estate license.
