Is there anything I need before getting started?

To get started on the entire licensing process, you'll need to make sure you meet TREC's qualifications to become a real estate agent. If you're in the clear to take our courses, make sure you meet the minimum system requirements.

1. Make sure you're qualified to become a real estate agent first.

Before you begin taking your pre-licensing courses, you'll first need to make sure you meet TREC's qualifications for becoming a real estate agent.

Here are the requirements you need to meet:

  1. You are a US citizen or a lawfully admitted alien.
  2. You are at least 18 years old.
  3. You meet TREC’s qualifications for honesty, trustworthiness, and integrity.

A high school diploma is not required for you to become a real estate agent.

Regarding TREC’s qualifications for honesty, trustworthiness, and integrity, if you answer “Yes” to any of the questions below, you’ll need to request a Fitness Determination (FD) from TREC.

  1. Do you have any criminal offenses?
  2. Do you have any unpaid judgments?
  3. Have you had discipline taken against your professional or occupational license?
  4. Have you performed any unlicensed real estate activity?

Another thing to keep in mind are all of the startup fees for becoming a real estate agent.

2. Meet the system requirements to take our courses.
