Person or candidates wishing to become licensed real estate salesperson in Texas must be 18
years of age or older, must be honest, trustworthy, have integrity, must be a legal resident of
Texas and must be a United States citizen or a lawfully admitted alien. Candidates must also
have completed the required education, applied to the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC)
and pass the licensing examination.


The educational courses required by the TREC include 60 classroom hours of Principles of
Real Estate, 30 classroom hours of Law of Agency, 30 classrooms hours of Law of Contracts
as well as another 34 classroom hours of core real estate courses. Candidates must submit
proof of completion to the TREC with a credit transcript or certificate along with $20. After the
TREC receives the proper proof of completion, it then will present the candidate with a letter of
satisfaction for educational requirements. This letter must be received before the candidate
can apply for the Texas Real Estate License.


The application asks candidates their height, weight, sex and ethnic group. The application
also asks if the candidate has ever been licensed in Texas or another state as a Real Estate
salesperson. If the candidate answers yes to these questions, the application asks them to
explain. The next thing the application covers is has the candidate ever had a professional or
occupational licensed revoked, suspended, canceled or surrendered. If the answer to this
question is yes, then they will need to explain the situation. The application goes on to ask if
there are any disciplinary hearings or investigations pending against any professional or

copies of all orders, notices, disapprovals, investigative reports as well as a written
explanation. The application continues to ask the candidate if they have any unpaid judgments
or civil suits pending and if so, to submit copies of all petitions and judgments along with a

Information revealed in the background check can be used to disapprove the candidate’s
application, even if all the other requirements are met. After the background check is complete
and approved by the TREC, the candidate will receive notification as to whether the candidate
has been approved or not. If approved, the candidate will receive a copy of the Candidate
Information Brochure to register for the exam. After registering for the exam, the TREC will
inform the candidate of the time and location of the exam. The candidate will need to forms of
