Florida Real Estate License

Definition - What does Florida Real Estate License mean?

The Florida Department of Business Professional Regulation (FDBPR) manages the issuance of Florida real estate licenses. The license is initially available at the sales associate level, which leads into the broker sales associate level. Attaining a sales associate level license requires applicants complete the following steps:
  • 18 years of age
  • U.S. social security number
  • High school education or equivalent
  • 63 hour pre-license course approved by the Florida Real Estate Commission
  • Submit to and pass a background check
  • Pass the examination
  • Pay a $105 fee
The broker level requires:
  • A 72 hour broker course
  • 24 months experience as a licensed sales associate
  • Pass the broker examination
Both exams are administered by Pearson Vue and cover 100 multiple-choice questions. Applicants have 3.5 hours to complete either exam. Exam scores are calculated on a scale between 1 and 100. Due to a variance in difficulty levels between different forms of the exam, the score does not directly correlate to a specific number of correct answers. A score of 75 or above is considered passing.
