Generally, all applicants must complete a required pre-license course, either online or in-person. If a non-resident of Florida already has a real estate license from another state that is classified as a mutual recognition state, then that person is excused from the requirements of a pre-license class. The mutual recognition applicant takes a state exam of 40 questions on Florida law only. Please call us if you think you may qualify under mutual recognition rules.
The mutual recognition states include Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Tennessee.
Also, persons with a 4-year college degree in real estate and members of the Florida Bar are not required to take a pre-license course.
