Renewal of Salesperson and Broker Licenses
Most licenses expire two years from the last day of the month in which they were issued, as indicated on the license. One exception is the concurrent broker license, which expires on the same date as the original broker license. All active brokers and salespersons are required to complete no less than 8 hours of coursework through classroom, correspondence, or other distance learning instruction, during each licensing term.
