Califormia State Reciprocity:

California has no reciprocity with any other state to allow a waiver of any of the requirements to obtain a license. 

In applying for the real estate broker or salesperson examination, evidence of completion (i.e. transcripts) of the statutory courses in out-of-state institutions is acceptable if the institution is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges or a comparable regional accrediting entity, and each course counts as three semester-units of credit or four quarter-units of credit. Courses completed through foreign institutions of higher learning must be evaluated by a foreign credentials evaluation service approved by the Bureau of Real Estate.

Unless prior approval has been granted by the California Real Estate Commissioner, no private vocational real estate school outside the State of California may grant credit for the required pre-license courses. Out-of-state residents must file a Consent to Service of Process with the California Bureau of Real Estate (CalBRE). This form must be completed, signed, notarized and submitted to the CalBRE with the original or renewal application.

Brokers must maintain a California business address if engaging in business in California. If not engaging in business in California, brokers must also file an Out-of-State Broker Acknowledgment. 

Salespersons must be licensed with a California broker if engaging in business in California.

Applicants for a California real estate license must submit one set of classifiable fingerprints, acceptable to the State Department of Justice (DOJ). Applicants who reside outside of California must submit their fingerprints directly to the CalBRE. A fingerprint card (FBI Applicant FD-258 Rev 3/10) will be provided to all out-of-state applicants with the original license application. It should be taken to a local law enforcement agency for completion. The appropriate fingerprint fee must be submitted to the CalBRE with the completed fingerprint card, original license application, and license fee.

California Continuing Education (CE) and License Renewal Requirements:

California real estate licenses must be renewed every four years from the date on the license.

License renewal requires the completion of 45 clock hours of CalBRE-approved real estate CE consisting of:

  • One 8-hour survey course that covers the five required subjects (Ethics, Agency, Trust Fund Handling, Fair Housing and Risk Management) OR 
  • 15 hours of continuing education courses in the following subjects: Ethics, Agency, Trust Fund Handling, Fair Housing and Risk Management
  • Additionally agents must complete at least 18 clock hours of consumer protection courses, and can meet the 45-clock-hour requirement with any real estate classes related to either consumer service or consumer protection
