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

A real estate sales associate applicant in Kentucky must be at least 18 years of age and show proof of high school graduation or its equivalent.

If you meet these qualifications, you can earn your Kentucky real estate sales agent license in 6 steps.

Step 1: Complete the 96-Hour Kentucky Pre-license Education Course

Kentucky sales associate license applicants must complete pre-licensing education before taking the exam. The education can be six credit hours in real estate courses from an accredited college or a 96-hour pre-license course from an approved proprietary school.


Once you pass the course final, you will be issued a course completion certificate. There is no time limit between when you finish the education and when you can take your exam.

Step 2: Submit Fingerprints for a Background Check

Kentucky requires all applicants to request a copy of their national criminal history before registering for the real estate exam or submitting their activation paperwork. You can contact the FBI at or the Kentucky State Police for fingerprinting by visiting

Note that all national criminal history checks expire 90 days after the report date of issuance.

Step 3: Apply for the State Exam

The KREC has contracted with PSI to administer the state licensing exam. You must have finished your course hours and initiated your FBI background check before scheduling the exam.

The Kentucky Salesperson Exam costs $100 and is payable directly to PSI. The company accepts credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover) for payment.

You’ll need your pre-license school code to schedule the exam. Codes are available from your school and also in the PSI Candidate Information Bulletin. Find the testing schedule on the PSI website or the state Candidate Handbook.

Online registration is the easiest and fastest way to set up your state licensing exam. You can also call 855-746-8176 for registration assistance.

Step 4: Take and Pass the State Exam

The Kentucky state exam has a national portion and a state portion. A passing score is 75%.

About the sales associate real estate exam:

  1. The national section is allocated 150 minutes to answer 80 questions.
  2. The state section is allocated 90 minutes to answer 50 questions.
  3. There may be five to ten "pretested" questions that will not count towards your score. These questions are not identified.

You can see the specific breakdown of questions asked by topic area in the Candidate Handbook.

If you pass the exam, you will receive your license application at the PSI testing center. If you fail, your score report will have diagnostic information. You must retake the failed portion(s) within (4) months.

Step 5: Purchase Errors and Omissions Insurance

Kentucky real estate licensees have the option to participate in the Kentucky Real Estate Commission’s group Errors & Omissions Insurance Policy carried by RISC Insurance Company. Basic plans start at $106 plus a KY and municipal surcharge. Or, you can carry E&O through a private carrier. No matter where you purchase your E&O coverage, the KREC charges a $10 processing fee.

Step 6: Apply for a Kentucky Sales Associate Real Estate License

You have 60 days from passing the state exam to apply for your sales associate license. The licensing fee is $130 for an active license, made payable to the Kentucky Real Estate Commission via credit card, debit card, or electronic check.

The documentation you’ll need includes:

KREC requires you to send all the documentation as a complete package. It will review your application and make a decision. Once approved, congratulations! You are a licensed Kentucky Sales Associate.

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.
