The FREC administers and enforces the real estate license law, Chapter 475, Part I, Florida Statutes. The Commission is also empowered to pass rules that enable it to implement its statutorily authorized duties and responsibilities. These rules are contained in Chapter 61J2, Florida Administrative Code. The statute and rules, along with Chapters 455, 215, 120, and 20, Florida Statutes are available under Statutes and Rules.

Applicants will now have the ability to upload required documents and fully complete and submit an application online.This enhancement will ensure that applications and supporting documentation submitted online will remain together.The online system will allow for faster processing times, thus getting our licensees to work more quickly.Other features of the new online application system include:

All newly licensed sales associate and broker licensees must take required post-licensing education before the end of the first license renewal period. Your license will become null and void if you fail to take the post-licensure education within the initial licensure renewal period, as mandated by Florida statute.

Real estate sales associates and brokers may earn three (3) hours of continuing education credit per renewal cycle for attending one legal session of the FREC meeting.

If your required education is not complete and/or reported, you will NOT be able to renew your license.
