Renew My License

California Real Estate licenses are issued for a four-year period and should be renewed prior to the expiration date listed on the license. As a reminder, the DRE mails a renewal reminder letter to the licensee’s mailing address of record approximately 60 days prior to the license expiration date. The reminder letter is sent as a courtesy only and non-receipt of the letter does not relieve the licensee from the responsibility of renewing the license.

If you are 70 years old and have been a “licensee in good standing” for 30 continuous years in California you are exempt from the continuing education requirements for license renewal. Click here to complete the RE 213 form to submit to the DRE.
