Three Ways to Complete Your CA Real Estate Licensing Education

No two students’ schedules are exactly alike. That’s why we offer you three distinctly different educational delivery vehicles to help you complete your California real estate salesperson license requirements—online OnDemand Review courses, Live Online Classroom courses, and Textbook Home Study courses. Plus, all coursework is approved by the California Department of Real Estate (DRE).

As a licensed California real estate agent, you will be able to help clients buy, sell, and rent properties. To become a California real estate agent, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Provide proof of completion in 135 credit hours of required education: Real Estate Principles (45 hours), Real Estate Practice (45 hours), and one additional California Department of Real Estate (DRE) state-approved course (45 hours). We highly recommend our course Legal Aspects of Real Estate, as it is designed to cover testable material on the state's licensing exam.
  • Pass the California Real Estate Exam with a score of 70% or better
  • File your license application with the BRE, along with the fee, within one year of the exam date
  • Submit your Live Scan Request (for submitting fingerprints)

Visit our State Requirements page for complete information including mandatory waiting periods for final exams.
