The Process

The first step for obtaining your N.C. real estate license is to successfully complete the pre-licensing course from a registered Real Estate School. The 75-hour class will prepare you to take and pass the N.C. State License Exam.

Once you receive a passing grade from the course work you will be given a certificate that indicates you are ready to sit for the State License Exam.

You will then be expected to apply to take the N C State Exam by submitting $30, along with your application and the pre-licensing course certificate to the NC Real Estate Commission. Many applicants will also take a short review session to prep for the exam.

You will have to pay a $66 administration fee to PSI Exams to sit for the exam. You will learn quickly whether you passed or not. If you pass, you will request a background check from the Carolina Investigative Branch to show whether you have a criminal record of any kind. The cost is $10.

Once you have successfully completed these steps you will receive your provisional license in approximately a week. You may affiliate with a fully licensed firm as a provisional broker. You may provide real estate services as long as you are doing so under the supervision of a broker-in-charge of a licensed company.

In order to become a full-fledged broker, you are required to take three 30-hour post-licensing courses within the next 18 months.
