Real Estate License Georgia | Real Estate U
In the state of Georgia, you must be at least 18 years of age with proof of high school graduation or equivalent to earn your license.
Step #1: Complete the Georgia 75-hour real estate license course
The course must be approved by the Georgia Real Estate Commission.
At the end of the course is a proctored final exam. Once you pass the final exam you will immediately get your Certificate of Completion for the course.
Step #2: Complete a background check
Prior to submitting your license application, you will have to obtain a Georgia Crime Information Report or criminal history report, which the Commission will use to run a background check.
Step #3: Schedule and pass the State licensing exam
The State exam must be taken at a PSI testing center. You can apply to take the state exam online using AMP’s REAL system.
There are 152 multiple-choice questions on the state exam, which includes a national portion of 100 questions and a state portion of 52 questions.
Step #4: Apply for Your Georgia real estate salespersons license
You can apply for your Georgia real estate salespersons license at the PSI testing center, right after you pass the state exam. If you have a sponsoring broker, your active real estate license will be mailed to your broker’s office. If you do not have a sponsoring broker, you will receive an inactive real estate license.
Step #5: Renew Your License
Every newly licensed Georgia real estate agent must complete the 25-hour Georgia Sales Post-license course within one year of obtaining their license. All other licensed agents must complete at least 36-hours of approved continuing education during each 4-year renewal period.
