After your first renewal, your license may be renewed every 2 years by completing 14 hours of continuing education of which 3 hours must be Core Law.

DBPR Releases New Self Print Licensing 
The Department of Business and Professional Regulation has introduced a new and convenient online licensing feature for licensed real estate professionals. You can now self-print your license directly from your email or DBPR account once it has been issued. If you have more than one email address, please verify your online email account before printing the license.

Rather than waiting seven to 10 days for your license to arrive by mail, you can now access and print your newly issued or renewed license when it’s most convenient for you. You will no longer receive your license by mail. Take a look at this short video about the new licensing feature for more information.
