I missed the due date for my Georgia real estate license renewal, can I still renew?
If you missed the license renewal date, your license is considered lapsed and you will need to reinstate the license. You will be able to reinstate your license online; a late fee will be charged.
Prior to reinstating a license online, each licensee must submit a “secure and verifiable document” for identification purposes and a “notarized affidavit” as detailed in the Lawful Presence Verification form, if not already on file with GREC.
Please allow five business days from the submission of your information for GREC to notate your license record so that you will be able to reinstate online.
Your license will be reinstated to an active status only if:
- It is less than 30 days past due
- Your license was in an active status prior to the renewal date
- All required CE credits have been completed and posted to your record
In all other situations, your license will be reinstated to an inactive status. If you are reinstated to an inactive status, all required CE credits must be completed and posted to your record before you can hold an active license. To change your license status from inactive to active, please submit a Change Application.
If your license has lapsed for more than one year, you will NOT be able to reinstate your license online. You will need to use a Reinstatement Application and a late fee will be charged. After the commission processes your application, a new wall license and pocket card will be mailed to you within two business days.
Do I have to complete any continuing education if my Georgia real estate license is inactive?
No. However, Georgia law requires that any licensee with a license on inactive status for more than two years complete six hours of education for every year the license was inactive prior to returning to active status. Courses must be taken no more than one year prior to the date of the reactivation of the license.
Are your courses approved by Georgia Real Estate Commission?
Yes! Our school code is 7848. Course approval numbers are listed in the course title.
Do you report my continuing education to Georgia Real Estate Commission?
Yes. We will report your continuing education to the Georgia Real Estate Commission within 3 days of course completion. It will take 24-48 hours for your course completion to be reflected in GREC’s database. We also provide you with a printable certificate of completion available immediately after you complete your course.
How long do I have to complete my courses after I purchase them?
Individual courses are available for six months from the date of purchase. The purchase of a package will give you access to the coursework for the full length of your licensing cycle (4 years).
Do I have to complete my Georgia real estate course at one time?
No! You do not have to complete each course in one sitting. Your courses are available to you from any internet enabled device, and our system will keep track of where you start and stop. Our courses are usually broken into 20-25 minutes intervals, which will make it easy for you to complete your course when it’s convenient for you!
