Salesperson License Requirements

Individuals who perform acts of real estate services in Idaho must be licensed by the Real Estate Commission. For the purposes of the License Professor, a salesperson is similar to sales agents in other states. Purchasing the sales agent package and selecting Idaho will provide you with national questions as well as Idaho-specific salesperson questions.

Minimum Requirements to Apply for the Salesperson License

  • Basic: To apply for a license, you must be 18 years of age or older, have graduated high school or have an equivalent diploma, obtain an Errors & Omissions insurance (to become active), and completed 90 hours of pre-license education. You will also need to pay all applicable fees, have your fingerprints taken, and provide all required documentation.
  • Education: Sales associate candidates must complete ninety (90) hours of real estate education in real estate principles/fundamentals in the form of module one and module two. Depending on the approved school, online real estate courses may be an option. You can view all of the approved Idaho real estate schools here.
  • Residence: Idaho does not have a reciprocal agreement with any other states. However, Idaho waives the national portion of the licensing exam and pre-license education requirements (if applicable) if you are licensed on active status in another state. You may obtain the same type of license in Idaho as you hold in your primary state of licensure, unless your primary state is a “single licensure” state (everyone holds a broker license). You will still need to take the Idaho state  Salesperson Licensing Exam through Pearson VUE.
  • Honesty: License applicants must be honest and truthful. Conviction of a crime may result in the denial of a license. The failure to reveal a criminal conviction on an original license application may also result in the denial of a license. If you have ever been convicted of a felony or had a professional license revoked for certain disciplinary reasons you must obtain an exemption to be licensed. For further information regarding the license issuance process when an applicant has a prior criminal conviction, please visit the Idaho Real Estate Commission.
  • Fees: The Idaho salesperson application fee is $160.00, the Pearson VUE exam fee is $80.00, and fingerprinting will cost $61.25.

Broker License Requirements

An Idaho Real Estate Broker License is required of individuals who want to employ salespersons under their supervision. A license may be obtained by broker candidates that have an active Idaho license that they have used full time for two out of the previous five years. Purchasing our broker package and selecting Idaho will provide you with national exam prep questions as well as Idaho-specific broker practice questions.

Minimum Requirements to Apply for the Broker License

  • Basic: To apply for a license, you must be 18 years of age or older, have graduated high school or have an equivalent diploma, obtain an Errors & Omissions insurance (to become active), and completed 90+ hours of pre-license education. You will also need to pay all applicable fees, have your fingerprints taken, and provide all required documentation.
  • Experience: You must have at least 2 years of active real estate sales experience in the preceding 5 years.
  • Education: Sales associate candidates must complete at least ninety (90) hours of real estate education in real estate principles/fundamentals covering Brokerage Management (28), Real Estate Law (30), plus two electives from Valuation & Analysis or Finance (GRI 101/102, GRI 201/202), or CCIM courses  (CI 101, CI 102, CI 103, CI 104). Depending on the approved school, online real estate courses may be an option. You can view all of the approved Idaho real estate schools here.
  • Residence: Idaho does not have a reciprocal agreement with any other states. However, Idaho waives the national portion of the licensing exam, pre-license education, and broker experience requirements (if applicable) if you are licensed on active status in another state. You may obtain the same type of license in Idaho as you hold in your primary state of licensure, unless your primary state is a “single licensure” state (everyone holds a broker license). If you are licensed in a “single licensure” state, you must hold a Principal or Designated Broker license to qualify for an Idaho broker license. You will still need to take the Idaho state Broker Licensing Exam through Pearson VUE.
  • Honesty: License applicants must be honest and truthful. Conviction of a crime may result in the denial of a license. The failure to reveal a criminal conviction on an original license application may also result in the denial of a license. If you have ever been convicted of a felony or had a professional license revoked for certain disciplinary reasons you must obtain an exemption to be licensed. For further information regarding the license issuance process when an applicant has a prior criminal conviction, please visit the Idaho Real Estate Commission.
