Learn what's required for your Real Estate License in Texas

This real estate licensing information summarizes the minimum requirements established by the Texas Real Estate Commission. We recommend you contact the Texas Real Estate Commission for more detailed information or changes.

If you obtain real estate licenses in multiple states, we recommend you check each state's requirements.

Texas Real Estate License: Sales Agent

All Sales Agent licensees must complete 18 hours of continuing education which must include 8 hours in TREC Legal Update I and II courses. Continuing Education must be completed no later than the expiration date of each license term.

In addition, If you have been made a supervisor by your broker, you may also need to take the 6-hour Broker Responsibility course as part of your 18 hours of CE.

If TREC records do not reflect completion of CE requirements at the time you submit your renewal application, you must pay a $200 CE Deferral Fee, or renew in inactive status. Payment of the CE Deferral Fee allows you to remain active for an additional 60 days from your expiration date to complete CE requirements.

Online Limitations

The Texas Real Estate Commission requires students to spend the number of hours in the course for which credit is be awarded.

Courses taken for CE credit contain security questions and must be answered correctly within 1 minute. Each question is case sensitive. Due to state regulation we are unable to provide questions/answers. Please be sure to read carefully.
