The fastest and most affordable way to get your real estate salesperson license in Idaho! Here you'll learn:
Course Approval Number: TBD
Education Provider Number: TBD
An Idaho salesperson applicant must:
If you meet these basic qualifications, earn a real estate salesperson’s license in (7) steps.
Step 1: Complete 90-hour pre-license education
Idaho salesperson candidates must first take the required pre-licensing education. These courses must be from an approved education provider.
Module 1 is a 45-hour course on the fundamental real estate concepts. Mobile 2 is a 45-hour course on the study of the knowledge and applied skills involved in listing, selling, buying and closing property.
The pre-license course can be taken online or in-person. Your pre-license education is valid for three years.
Step 2: Applying for the State Exam
PearsonVUE administers Idaho's Real Estate Salesperson License Exam. Schedule your exam directly by visiting www.pearsonvue.com or calling 1-(877)-540-5833. The nonrefundable exam fee is $80. You will directly pay PearsonVUE for the exam.
Bring two forms of identification with you to the exam site. One form of identification must be government-issued.
Refer to the Idaho Candidate Bulletin for more information on examination schedules, site locations, exam security, reporting, and preparation.
Step 3: Take and Pass the State Exam
The Idaho state salesperson exam is divided into two sections, general and state law, and uses multiple-choice questions.
The Idaho Salesperson Pre-licensure Exam includes:
A passing score on the salesperson exam is a scaled score of 70. You must pass both portions of the exam before you can apply for your license. Your exam results are valid for (1) year.
Step 4: Get Fingerprinted For Background
All applicants must get their fingerprints taken and have a background check run before applying for their license. The IREC highly recommends scheduling your fingerprinting with PearsonVUE. The fingerprinting fee is $61.25.
Make the fingerprint appointment online at https://pearsonwest.ibtfingerprint.com. You can also contact IdentoGo® by Idemia at (866) 761-8069.
Your fingerprint and background check results are only good for six months.
Step 5: Sign up for IREC online services
Create an account with the Idaho Real Estate Commission for their online services. Here you will be able to track your license history and education records. Creating your account will be essential for checking on your fingerprint status. When you see the message, “RES-OK,” your fingerprints have cleared.
Step 6: Acquire Errors & Omissions Insurance
Idaho requires all real estate salespersons to have a current E&O policy before getting an active license. The IREC has a group policy held with Rice Insurance Services or you may be covered under a firm policy at your brokerage.
Step 7: Apply for Your License
Once you have completed all steps above, you are ready to submit the license application. The fee is $160. IREC will not process an application that is missing any documentation; view the application for what you will need.
Once the license is approved, your license will be issued on an inactive status. Your designated broker must add you to your brokerage to activate the license. After that final step, you are an Idaho real estate salesperson. Congratulations!

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.

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.

As a real estate agent, there is no limit to how much money you can earn. The more leads you source and close, the more money you will make!
Do you crave freedom from the boring 9-5? As a real estate agent, you work when you choose. By law, your broker cannot tell you when and where to work!
If you are planning to work two jobs at a time, this is perfect for you. You are not required to completely dedicate all your time as a real estate salesperson. You decided if you want to be a part-time real estate agent or choose to work full-time and make it your dream job.
Once you earn your real estate license, you will be allowed to sell or lease all types of real estate throughout Idaho.
