Licensing Process


You must successfully complete a 75-hour New York State approved course of study and pass a qualifying written examination administered by the Department of State before applying for a license to operate as a Real Estate Salesperson in NY State. If you have completed the 45-hour salesperson qualifying course prior to July 1, 2008, you may complete the 30 hour remedial course in order to qualify for licensure.

As proof of successful completion of schooling, you must have the Certification of Satisfactory Completion section of the application completed by the Department of State approved school coordinator or the signature of their authorized designee.

When you have passed the written examination, the passed examination notification must be submitted with your application form and license fee.
