The fastest and most affordable way to get your real estate salesperson license in Louisiana! Here you'll learn:
Course Approval Number: TBD
Education Provider Number: TBD
Arello approval number: TBD
Louisiana salesperson applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have earned a high school diploma or equivalency certificate before applying for a salesperson license.
Anyone convicted of a felony must complete the felony applicant process first.
Otherwise, you can earn your Louisiana salesperson’s license in 7 steps.
Step 1: Complete Pre-license Education
Louisiana requires salesperson applicants to take 90 hours of pre-licensing education. The 90-hour pre-licensing course must be taken from an approved and state-certified real estate school. The pre-license course can be taken online or in-person.
The Louisiana 90-hour pre-licensing course will have a final exam to cap the coursework. You must pass the final to receive your certificate of completion.
Step 2: Submit the Salesperson License Application A
Next, you’ll send your 90-hour course completion certificate to the LREC with your Initial Real Estate Salesperson License Application – Part A. The total fees for this application are $90.
The LREC will process your application and send its approval to PSI for your state licensing exam.
Step 3: Schedule Your Exam
After Part A of your licensing application is approved, PSI will email you the Examination Authorization Form and instructions on how to schedule your state exam. Your Examination Authorization entitles you to take the exam one time.
PSI runs testing centers throughout the state. See the testing locations in the Candidate Handbook or by scheduling on PSI’s website. You can also call (855) 579-4644 for registration assistance.
The Louisiana Salesperson Exam costs $85 and is payable directly to PSI via credit card.
Step 4: Take and Pass the State Exam
The Louisiana state salesperson exam is divided into a national and state section with a total of 135 questions.
The Salesperson Pre-licensure Exam includes:
The exam includes multiple-choice questions.
You are notified on-screen immediately if you passed or failed. You’ll also be given an official score report with your score and any diagnostic information. The exam report will also be reported to the Louisiana Real Estate Commission.
You must pass both portions of the exam before moving onto next steps with your license. You have one year from your initial exam to pass both sections before the LREC closes your application.
Step 5: Order Your Background Check
All applicants must order a background check through Clearbox at LREC website. Payment is accepted via credit or debit card. The name on the card must match the name on your application.
Your background check is only good for 180 days. The Commission advises you to wait to pass your real estate exam before ordering your background check. Your license must also be issued within the 180 days, so time your submission with the next steps. The nonrefundable fee paid to Clearbox is $49 when paid online or $75 when mailed by check.
Step 6: Acquire Errors & Omissions Insurance
Louisiana requires all real estate salespersons to have a current E&O policy before receiving an active license.
You must submit proof of insurance with your salesperson license application part B. You can either choose the LREC group policy serviced by RISC or pick an independent plan. The group policy has a $136 premium plus $7 LREC transaction fee.
If you choose an independent E&O policy, turn in the Independent Errors & Omissions Coverage form and your declaration page.
Step 7: Submit Part B of Your License Application
You’ll simultaneously be working to submit your Initial Real Estate License Application - Part B. This step requires you to show E&O information and have a sponsoring broker sign and acknowledge you on the application form.
Once LREC approves your initial license, you will have 180 days to complete a required 45-hour post-license education course.
Following this final step, congratulations! You are now a Louisiana real estate salesperson.

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.
Frank Contreras - Real Estate Agent in Texas - Century 21 APD Associates, El Paso, TX
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!
Candice Jackson Tate - Real Estate Agent in Texas - LIV Realty in Frisco, TX
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.

Real estate agents have limitless income potential. The more deals you source and close, the more money you can make!
Break out of the office. Choose your own schedule and set your own hours. By law, your sponsoring broker can’t dictate when and where to work!
Work part-time using your license to earn extra income. Or, slowly transition from your current career as you build a clientele. Of course, you dive right into full-time and make real estate your dream job.
Holding a real estate license allows you to sell or lease all types of real estate throughout Louisiana.

Can I take the LA pre-license course if I'm still in high school?
The Louisiana Real Estate Commission requires you to be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or equivalent before applying for a license. Since you submit Part A of the application shortly after finishing the 90-hour pre-license course, you could take the course near the end of your high school education.
What are the requirements to apply for a LA real estate license?
You must complete the 90-hour pre-license course, pass the state licensing exam, order a background check, and obtain E&O insurance. You’ll send Part A and Part B of the license application. You must also be at least 18 years of age. You’ll need a sponsoring broker to get an active license.
Can I take the 90-hour LA real estate license course online?
Yes, many students prefer to take the course online because it is more affordable and flexible than in-person classes. As long as a state-approved education provider provides the course, you can take it online.
