Have you been wondering, when do I need to renew my Texas real estate license, and how? Time flies when you’re having fun helping clients, but it’s okay because License Classroom has your back! Whether you’re a new agent or more experienced, there are 2 simple steps to follow for license renewals.
#1: Complete Your Education Requirement
Texas requires agents to complete educational courses to renew their real estate license every two years. You’ll need to complete Sales Agent Apprentice Education (SAE) courses for your first renewal and Continuing Education (CE) courses for renewals every two years after that.
TREC allows license renewals up to six months past the expiration date. However, your license will be inactive and you won’t be able to practice real estate while it’s expired. CE courses can be taken at any time between your last renewal date and your license expiration date. You can also defer CE courses (for a fee) to renew an inactive license, but SAE is required to renew an active or inactive license for the first time. These courses are meant to keep agents informed and competent to deliver quality real estate service to clients. They’re an investment in yourself and your business!
