Licensing Requirements for New Jersey
Licensing Requirements
In order to become licensed to sell real estate in the state of New Jersey, the candidate must be at least 18 years of age, have a high school diploma or GED, and complete 75 hours of real estate instruction from a state accredited school. The Weichert Real Estate School offers the Pre-Licensing Course to satisfy the 75 hour requirement. Candidates have one year from the completion date of their pre-licensing course to take and pass the state examination ($47.00) administered by PSI, to complete the fingerprinting process, and file an application for licensure through a sponsoring real estate broker.
Licensees are required to satisfy one of the following to qualify for license renewal:
1. Completion of 12 hours of continuing education applicable to the license term
2. Completion of one of more broker pre-licensure education courses
3. Salespersons initially licensed in the second year of the NJ real estate license term
Please refer to the New Jersey Real Estate Commission website for any additional information or state requirements.
