Complete Your Real Estate Courses
The State of California requires 360 hours of DRE-approved college level real estate courses to include unit quizzes and a pass rate of 60% or higher on final exams for proof of completion to submit your application for a Broker License.
Note: Each course requires a minimum 18 days of study
It takes as soon as 90 days to complete your courses. This isn’t always the case as life may get in the way and other responsibilities are prioritized. Therefore, the DRE allows a maximum of one year, from the date of enrollment, to complete all real estate courses. Course completion includes taking and passing the course final exam with a score of 60% or higher before the course expiration.
Holding a salesperson license for two years does not necessarily qualify you for a broker license.
Educational and/or Experience: Real estate agents pursuing their broker license may need two years of full-time salesperson experience as a licensee. However, this may be waived for applicants submitting evidence of a four-year degree from an accredited college or university provided the course of study to obtain their degree includes a major or minor in real estate.
Completion of Statutory Courses: Broker examination applicants will be required to submit evidence of completion of eight college level required courses along with two years full time experience as a license real estate salesperson within the last five years.
Pass a Written Examination: The broker examination is distinct from the salesperson examination in that it tests appropriate knowledge of the English language, including reading, writing, and spelling; and of arithmetical computations common to real estate and business opportunity practices. To pass the broker examination and become eligible for a license, examinees must correctly answer at least 75% of the questions on the test.
Successful completion of the following eight college-level courses is required to become a real estate broker:
FIVE REQUIRED COURSES:
Real Estate Practice
Legal Aspects of Real Estate
Real Estate Finance
Real Estate Appraisal
**Real Estate Economics or Accounting
THREE OF THE FOLLOWING COURSES:
