How to obtain an Alabama Real Estate License

In the State of Alabama, exams, licensing and continuing education for real estate agents are governed by the Alabama Real Estate Commission.
There are two basic real estate licenses in Alabama, a broker's license and a salesperson's license. Generally, a salesperson's license allows the holder to sell real estate only under the auspices of a licensed broker. (Salesperson's licenses are generally what people refer to when they say they have a real estate license.)
To obtain the salesperson's license, a person must:
  • Be a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.
  • Be at least 19 years old.
  • Show proof of bona fide residency in any state in the U.S.
  • Show proof of high school graduation or GED
  • Not have been convicted of a felony or a crime involving moral turpitude.
  • Not have had a real estate application or license rejected or revoked in any state within the past two years.
  • After meeting the education and/or experience requirements, pass the licensing examination.
Additionally, a salesperson applicant must:
  • Prior to taking the state exam, successfully complete an approved 60 clock hour prelicense course.
  • Must complete a 30 hour post license training course within the first twelve months of licensure in order to be issued an original (permanent) license.
  • Further, the course must be completed and original license issued within the first six months in order to maintain an active license.
To obtain the broker's license, a person must:
  • Be a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.
  • Be at least 19 years old.
  • Show proof of bona fide residency in any state in the U.S.
  • Show proof of high school graduation or GED
  • Not have been convicted of a felony or a crime involving moral turpitude.
  • Not have had a real estate application or license rejected or revoked in any state within the past two years.
  • After meeting the education and/or experience requirements, pass the licensing examination.
Additionally, a broker applicant must:
  • Successfully complete an approved 60 clock hour prelicense course.
  • Must have held an active real estate salesperson license in any state for at least 24 months of the 36 month period immediately preceding the date of application.
