Section 404.1(a) of the Real Estate Licensing and Registration Act requires real estate brokers and salespersons to complete 14 hours of Commission-approved continuing education during each two-year license period.  If you are a new salesperson licensee and you are renewing your license for the first time, you are required to complete a specific set of continuing education courses.  Please visit the Education Information - New Students and Licensees page for further information.
Additionally, a licensed broker or salesperson who wishes to activate a license that has been placed on inactive status shall be required to document 14 hours of continuing education. Per Section 35.382(b) of the Regulations, continuing education that is used to reactivate a license cannot be used to renew the license during the same renewal period.  An additional 14 hours of continuing education will need to be completed prior to renewal.
Per Section 501(b) of the Real Estate Licensing and Registration Act, “Any person who remains inactive for a period of five years without renewing his license shall, prior to having a license reissued to him, submit to and pass the examination pertinent to the license for which the person is reapplying.”
If your license is currently inactive or expired, you have five years from the date of inactivity or expiration to reactivate your license without taking the licensing examinations.  Your completed application for reactivation must be received in our office before your five year deadline.  A completed application includes the reactivation fee, criminal background check, conviction documents (if applicable), and continuing education certificates.  Applications will not be considered complete if they are faxed or emailed, as a fee cannot be submitted in this manner.
