Alabama Reciprocates Real Estate Licenses with Most Other States
I get calls every week from out-of-state Realtors® looking for a 6-hour Alabama License Law class so they can get Alabama Real Estate License.
Let me explain Alabama’s Reciprocal License process. First of all the Alabama Real Estate Commission Requirements are 6 hours of class time that focuses on Alabama License Law. There are individual courses directed at both the salesperson and brokers. The schools that offer these courses design a special course to meet the Commission’s requirements for each position.
Special Reciprocal Class Requirements
Alabama Real Estate Institute offers a Reciprocal Salesperson class and a Reciprocal Broker’s class. Both classes are 6-hours in length and the cost for each individual course is only $99. We only offer these courses via online/internet due to the physical location of student taking the class.
Reciprocal Classes Can Be Completed In Only One Day
From the beginning to the end, a reciprocal class can be completed in a day’s time if a person so desires. Once the online course has been completed, the school administrator will issue the required credits to the Alabama Real Estate Commission, and also to Amplified Measurement Professionals (AMP); which is the state chosen testing company.
Alabama State Exam Fee
Once the school instructor sends the student directions, they may setup their state exam with AMP. The fee for taking each state exam is $71. A passing grade on state exams are 70% correct answers or better. State exams can be taken as many times as necessary, within one year from the date of completing the online class.
Making Application For Reciprocal License
Upon successfully completing the state exam, the student may apply for their Alabama license by completing the required application and providing a current copy of licensure from their home state. Let me point out that the Application for License is the same form that Alabama Sales Prelicense uses so be don’t be concerned that there’s no form especially for referral agents.
The process is very simple and the exam is not difficult if you understand Alabama License Law, and how Agency in Alabama differs from your state. Other information is available by following this link; Reciprocal. One thing that makes the reciprocal process easier is the assistance I provide all my students. I guide you every step of the way.
