If you meet these qualifications, you can earn your Utah real estate sales agent license in (6) steps.
Step 1: Complete the 120-Hour Utah Pre-license Education Course
Utah salesperson license applicants must complete an approved 120-hour pre-license course before taking the state licensing examination. The course must be taken at an approved real estate school.
The 120-hour pre-license course content covers national and state topics concerning real estate practice. Once you pass the course final, you will be issued a candidate education certifying document. You must complete your salesperson pre-license course within one year of applying for your license.
Step 2: Apply for the State Exam
Utah has contracted with PearsonVUE to administer the sales agent exam. To schedule an exam online, go to www.pearsonvue.com at least 24 hours before your desired date. Otherwise, you can schedule over the telephone by calling (801) 530-6747. The exam fee is $59 paid to PearsonVUE via credit card, debit card, voucher, or check.
Refer to the Utah Real Estate Candidate Handbook for information on examination schedules, site locations, exam security, reporting, and preparation.
Step 3: Take and Pass the State Exam
The Utah state exam has a general portion and a State portion. The number of questions vary according to each exam form. You must pass each section with a scaled score of 70.
You can see the specific breakdown of the number of questions asked in each topic area in the Candidate Handbook.
As part of the exam process, you’ll be asked a series of Qualifying Questions required for your license application. Candidates will need to have either their Social Security number and be a U.S. citizen, or have a working social security number and an alien registration number. A sample of these questions is also available in the candidate handbook.
If you pass the exam, you will receive instructions for applying for a Utah Sales AgentLicense.
If you fail, your score report will have diagnostic scoring information and information on reapplying.
Step 4: Apply for a Utah Sales Agent Real Estate License
Once you pass your state exam, you have 90 days to apply for your sales agent license, starting with the day you pass the exam.
Follow the state application checklist to complete the application. You’ll need all of the listed documents uploaded in PDF form:
The fee for the sales agent real estate salesperson license totals $157. It includes a $100 application fee, $12 recovery fund fee, $40 fingerprinting fee, and $5 FBI RAPBACK enrollment fee.
Step 5: Submit Fingerprints for a Background Check
Utah requires all applicants to submit fingerprints for a background check. Sales agents can schedule digital fingerprinting at PearsonVUE test centers in Bountiful, Draper, Ogden, and Orem. The fee is $12 and is separate from the fee paid to the Utah Division of Real Estate.
If your test center does not offer digital fingerprinting, the candidate will be issued two fingerprint cards. Use the services of a local law enforcement agency or third party fingerprinting vendor. You’ll need to submit the cards to the Utah Division of Real Estate.
Step 6: Track Your License Status
Once your license application and its supporting documents are uploaded to the Division, you can log in to check your status. Upon application approval, and hiring by a principal broker, you’ll be able to practice as a Utah real estate sales agent. 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.
