What are the requirements to submit a Real Estate Salesperson Application in California?

To submit your Real Estate Salesperson Application, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. You can get started on your pre-license course work, but you’ll need to be 18 years old to submit your application for your real estate salesperson license.a
  2. Complete 135 hours of required pre-license education
  3. Submit fingerprints and a background check to ensure that you meet the state’s moral standards to become a real estate salesperson
  4. Ace the licensing exam

You will not be required to name a sponsoring broker when you apply for your salesperson license - although you can if you’ve already found one! - but you will need a sponsoring broker to be issued an active license. If you don’t have a broker at the time of your application, simply leave that section blank and you will be sent a license in non-working status.
