How to Get a Real Estate Salesperson’s License in Arkansas


All Arkansas salesperson applicants must be at least 18 years old to apply for a real estate license. If you meet this basic standard, you can receive your salesperson license by following these 6 steps.

Step 1: Take 60-hour Pre-licensing Course

All salesperson applicants must take a 60-hour pre license real estate education. At least 30 of these classroom hours must be in the Basic Principles of Real Estate. Your coursework must be taken from an Arkansas Real Estate Commission approved school or from an accredited post-secondary school.

Your 60-hours completion certificate has no expiration date.

Step 2: Submit your Arkansas Salesperson Application

Next, submit an application to the Arkansas Real Estate Commission.

Your application documents must include:

  • A copy of your driver's license or birth certificate
  • Proof of licensing education, such as original course completion certificate or other documentation
  • FBI fingerprint card

All real estate salesperson applicants are required to complete a state and federal criminal background check. There is a $22 Arkansas criminal background check fee and a $14.25 FBI criminal background check fee.

AREC charges a $50 application fee, plus the background check fees, for a total of $86.25 payable to the AREC as a cashier's check or money order.

Step 3: Schedule the state licensing exam

The Arkansas Real Estate Commission has contracted with Pearson VUE to administer the state licensing exam. The AREC will mail you a Certificate of Examination Eligibility. You must have this before you schedule your exam.

The exam fee is $75 and must be paid at the time of reservation using a credit card, debit card, voucher, electronic check. Online scheduling is the fastest and easiest way to schedule your state exam.

Step 4: Pass the exam

On exam day, bring with you two forms of identification, one being government-issued with your photo and signature. In addition, bring your Certificate of Examination Eligibility.

About your Arkansas salesperson licensing exam:

  1. You must pass both sections of the exam with a scaled score of 70.
  2. The general or national portion of the exam has 80 questions.
  3. The state portion of the exam has 30 scored questions.
  4. You have a total of 4 hours to complete the exam.

Refer to the Candidate Information Handbook for specific content outlines and information on the number of questions under each section.

When you pass, you receive a score report and information on how to apply for your license.

Step 5: Send licensing fee and additional documents

You have 90 days after passing your state licensing exam to send your licensing fee and other forms to the AREC. The licensing fees total of $75 made payable to the AREC. You must also submit all pages of your score report and a signed post-license requirement notice.

If you fail to send in your fees and paperwork within 90 days, you will be required to start the application process over.

Step 6: Post-license education

All new salespersons are required to take 18 classroom hours of post-licensing education within six months of your licensing date. You must take your course hours with an AREC approved course provider.

Congratulations, you are now a licensed Arkansas real estate salesperson!
