When you pass the licensing exam, you’ll get a passing score report at the exam site and receive your License certificate within 10 days. You will be issued an inactive broker license on provisional status (also known as a provisional broker license).
Before the provisional broker can begin work in the real estate business, the provisional broker and a broker-in-charge must file a “License Activation/Affiliation” form (REC 2.08) with the Commission office to have the provisional broker license placed on active status. This may be accomplished by accessing the Commission’s website at (www.ncrec.gov) and utilizing the interactive online form.
A provisional broker must be supervised by a broker-in-charge at all times when engaging in real estate brokerage activities. A provisional broker must satisfy the Post Licensing education requirement in order to terminate the provisional status of the broker license
