So, what does it take to obtain your
Florida Real Estate License?

STEP 1: Submit Your License Application Package
Your License Application Package can be completed online at Click on “Apply For A License” and follow the directions. You need to be 18 years old and have a high school diploma or its equivalent to apply. On the application package you will share information about yourself and pay a fee of $105.

STEP 2: Register for Fingerprinting
Make a reservation – visit PearsonVUE and select “Fingerprint Reservation online,” or contact the customer support center at 1.888.274.2020. The fingerprinting fee is $57.25.

STEP 3: Attend Class
Completion of a 63-hour course is required to obtain your Florida Real Estate Sales Associate License. Students must attend the entire course and pass the final exam. We have Weekday, Evening and Weekend classes available in Fort Myers and Naples (and online courses coming soon). Our class tuition is $299. The class is completed in 8 days or 16 evenings.

STEP 4: Schedule the State License Exam
Upon approval of your application the testing service – PearsonVUE – is notified by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) and they in turn notify you with instructions to schedule the license examination. You have two years to sit for the license examination. The exam fee is $31.50. We have excellent Exam Preparation courses and products to help you prepare for success on exam day.

Pass the Exam and Activate the License
Remember to bring two forms of identification with signatures (one must be a government-issued photo identification), the confirmation number provided when test registration was made, and the Course Completion Certificate from Larson Educational Services. To activate your license, your employing broker must sign and deliver FORM 2050 to the DBPR.
