Getting Your Sales License

In New Jersey, in order to conduct a real estate sales transaction in which you are not a principal, you must have a NJ real estate salesperson’s license. 

The requirements for licensing are as follows:

  • Applicants must be 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or equivalent.
  • Applicants must successfully complete a 75 hour course and earn a score of 70% or more on the final class exam to qualify to take the state exam.
  • Upon successful completion of the pre-licensing course, applicants have one year to pass the State exam and file license application with the Real Estate Commission. Failure to do so will require repeating the course.
  • Applicants are subject to a criminal background check conducted by the NJ Real Estate Commission.

Currently, live online virtual pre-licensing training is permitted.  State testing centers are currently offering both online remote testing as well as in-person testing at their testing sites. 

NJ Real Estate Prep is a licensed real estate salesperson pre-licensing school authorized by the NJ Real Estate Commission to prepare & qualify students for the NJ real estate salesperson’s licensing exam.
