Complete your required education. Before you can qualify to take the Texas Real Estate Salesperson Exam, you must complete 180 hours of specified education. These 180 hours must include: 60 hours in Real Estate Principles, 30 hours in Law of Agency, 30 hours in Law of Contracts, 30 hours of Promulgated Contract Forms, and 30 hours in Real Estate Finance.

Consider obtaining a sponsoring broker. In order to practice as a real estate salesperson, you must be sponsored by a licensed Texas real estate broker. You and your sponsor will both need to complete and submit the Sponsorship Form.
Submit forms and fees to TREC. After completing the required 180 hours of licensing education, submit to TREC all education documents, including real estate school certificates. Active or inactive initial license? You’ll need to decide if you’d prefer an active or inactive license.
To apply for an active license to practice real estate, include with your initial mailing the Salesperson Sponsorship (SSF-2) form signed by a licensed Texas real estate broker.
To apply for an inactive license, submit only the Inactive Salesperson Application forms at this time. Submit the SSF-2 form later to activate your license.
Schedule your license examination and fingerprinting. After you receive your response letter from TREC approving and directing you to the Candidate Information Brochure, you can schedule your exam with PSI™. You will also receive direction on how to submit your fingerprints for review. You have one year from the date your application is filed to pass the examination.
Take the state exam. Once you have passed the state exam and your fingerprints are on file, you will receive an Active or Inactive Salesperson License from TREC via email (remember to monitor your junk mail folder).
