Here are the two things you need to do to get current.

2. Complete the Mandatory Continuing Education

All Texas real estate licensees must complete 18 hours of continuing education.

Sales Agents and Non-Sponsoring Brokers must complete the 4-hour Legal Update I, 4-hour Legal Update II, and 10-hours of elective CE courses.

Sponsoring Brokers must complete the 4-hour Legal Update I, 4-hour Legal Update II, 6-hour Broker Responsibility, and 4-hours of elective CE courses.

NOTE: Brokers who have sponsored sales agents during the current renewal will need to complete the Broker Responsibility course. This applies even if you are not currently sponsoring any sales agents

That's it!

    1. Hi Diane.
      Texas sales agents may their license in an inactive status without completing CE. Just keep in mind that you cannot engage in real estate brokerage activity with an inactive license.

      Sales Agent Late Renewal Fees are as follows:
      Sales Late Renewal, expired 90 days or less $143.00
      Sales Late Renewal, expired more than 90 days up to 6 months $176.00
      Sales Reinstatement, expired more than 6 months up to 2 years $190.00
