Real estate license renewal information
Your real estate license is awarded – and maintained – through the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR). To maintain your salesperson real estate license, all licensees must comply with post-licensing (if within your first two years of licensure) or 14 hours of continuing education requirements (consisting of 11 hours of specialty credit and 3 hours of core law credit) and pay the necessary renewal fees. This also applies to those licensees with a suspended license. If your required education is not complete and/or reported, you will not be able to renew your license through DBPR.
As a licensee, you are responsible for maintaining your continuing education status with DBPR. You can do that online by going to their website at www.myfloridalicense.com . You can also pay your license fee online as well. Brokers have additional licensing requirements so please check with DBPR.
PRO is here to help you with your continuing education needs!
The Pinellas Realtor® Organization is one of a few Associations that have become a real estate school and a continuing education provider. We did this in order to assist you with as many options for post-licensing and continuing education credits as possible. Many of the classroom-style courses that we offer our members have been approved for continuing education credits and the GRI I course also offers the entire 45 hour post-licensing credits needed for license renewal in your first two years. When we offer a course with continuing education credits, we electronically submit those credits directly to DBPR for you.
PRO also understands that you may not be able to easily make a lengthy time commitment away from your business. To that end, we have partnered with several online post-licensing and continuing education providers to offer you online options as well.
