Real Estate Licensing Requirements

North Carolina operates a “broker only” licensing system for real estate professionals. The North Carolina Real Estate Commission licenses individuals as Real Estate Brokers. Individuals must meet a prelicensing education requirement prior to becoming licensed and a postlicensing education requirement after becoming provisionally licensed.

Broker Prelicensing Course: Individuals must complete a prescribed, 75 hour North Carolina broker prelicense course in order to take the North Carolina Real Estate License Examination. Students who meet all requirements for successful completion of RLS 112 (Broker Prelicensing) may qualify to take the state license examination. Candidates passing that exam and meeting other requirements specified by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission may be licensed as Provisional Brokers.

Broker Postlicensing Courses: Provisionally licensed Brokers must complete 90 classroom hours of postlicensing education within three years of provisional licensure. At least one 30 hour course must be taken each year. This requirement may be met with the successful completion of RLS 121, 122, and 123. Students must hold an active Provisional Broker license to register for these postlicensing courses.
