Renewal Cycle: Every 2 years on March 31st and September 30th. The date you renew depends on when you initially took your licensing exam and is indicated on your license.

Licensees voluntarily inactive more than 12 months but less than 24 months must complete a 28-hour reactivation course (RealEstateCE.com does not offer this course). License's voluntarily inactive more than 24 months become null and void and the process must be started again. Renewal requires payment of all application and late fees.

Roster Reporting Procedures for Florida

Upon completion of all the course steps, a certificate will immediately, and always be available for printing from your account.

Your continuing education credits will be transmitted electronically to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) the following business day.

To renew with the DBPR online:

The DBPR has initiated email license renewal reminders to licensees who are in a current renewal cycle and have yet to renew their license. Once you renew a copy of your license will be sent to the email address associated with your online account. This process significantly reduces the amount of time it would have otherwise taken for you to receive your license in the mail. The Department will no longer print and mail initial, renewed or duplicate licenses. If you have more than one email address, please verify your online email account before printing the license.

If you wish to print your license at any time in the future you may do so using your secure online account with the DBPR. Please log into your account and follow the step by step instructions on how to print your license.

If you have not previously registered for DBPR's online services select Renew Your License. If you have already registered for DBPR's online services select Licensee Login.
