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.

My husband spotted the Real Estate U Groupon deal and he said I should look into it. Honestly at first I thought it had to be too good to be true. But after reading reviews and doing some research I said: “What the heck?!” For the price I really didn’t have much to lose.

I’m so happy I took the leap of faith! I loved the audible learning and that I could literally bring it with me wherever I went! I finished in 3 months! Trust me when I say if I can do it you can do it. I’m a very busy mother of 3 and they all have extracurricular activities, but somehow I buckled down and finished.

I did take a live test prep class at a local real estate school just to cover all bases. I reviewed all the quizzes from all the chapters to prepare. My advice would be to take your time when you test. I was so nervous but I took my time because I knew the material I just had to take my time!
Passing on my first try felt amazing!

I would not be here had I not had the amazing opportunity to complete the real estate licensing course via Real Estate U! I highly recommend the Real Estate U course. In fact my oldest son has decided to take the course as well!

I am currently working as a part time real estate agent for Century 21 APD Associates, in the beautiful city of El Paso, Texas. I wanted to get into real estate to become my own boss and I am looking forward to building a 6 figure income. I closed my first deal in October and looking to close on my second this December.

To obtain my license I chose RealEstateU. The courses were extremely helpful in passing state and national exam on my first try. I like the fact that I could study at my pace and I was able use my mobile to access my courses when on the road or when waiting on doctor appointments with my children.

I was able to go back and listen again and again to the parts that I did not get from the beginning. This is something that wouldn't have been provided by being in a classroom setting. If you are looking to obtain your license just be persistent and don't give up on your dream! I was able to invest in this course and more than tripled my return on the first home which I sold short after I obtained my real estate license.

If this is something you think you'll enjoy try it out and take the risk. Why not risk on something that has the potential to double or triple your income on the side. Jump on the opportunity of getting your license, which honestly is the easy part. And then go all in on the process helping clients and customers get what they want, which is a great home buying/selling experience.

Candice Jackson Tate

I (still am) a licensed auto insurance claims adjuster for a major insurance company. I held that position for 7.5 years. My family dynamic was changing and myself or my husband needed to be home more for our blended family of 5 children.

Real Estate allows me to regulate my schedule so I can dedicate time to my children and their activities. I will be working for LIV Realty in Frisco, TX and will be working full-time. My goals moving forward are to continue learning, networking and growing towards my own business. I plan on becoming a broker one day.

I loved the ease of the course. I was able to navigate easily and picked up where I left off each day. If I had any questions I received a response back very quickly from the RealEstateU support team. I was able to study and retain information easily. The workbook and the glossary were easy to follow and allowed me to print them to take with me in the event that I was not able to use my laptop. I loved that the course was accessible from a cell phone as well. We had a planned trip across the United States and I was able to study on my cell phone as we travelled 9 states. I have already recommended the course to a few of my friends!

Thank you so much for your help over the last few weeks. I rushed to get through the course because I am so excited to start working in the field as a NYS realtor. I thought this would have a negative impact on me toward the end when I was ready to test, but I feel I retained a lot of the info and am happy with the results.
