How do I get my Virginia Real Estate license?

To earn your real estate license in Virginia, you must complete 60 hours of approved education, pass the Virginia salesperson licensing exam, complete fingerprinting and a background check, and apply for a state license. While the process to become a real estate agent is similar in most states, each state has its unique steps that must be adhered to. The four steps to becoming a Virginia real estate agent are as follows:
