10 Steps for Getting an Oregon Real Estate Broker License

March 28th, 2022

Oregon requires a license in order to conduct professional real estate activity within the state. Oregon’s entry-level license it the Real Estate Broker license. Oregon does not have a Salesperson license. Applicants for licensure must complete these 10 steps:

Enroll in an Agency approved pre-license course;
Submit your license application to the Agency sometime before completion of your coursework;
Complete your approved pre-license training course;
Confirm with your course provider that you have submitted your license by giving your provider your Agency ID number;
Your course provider will upload your electronic eligibility file and required personal information to PSI, the licensing exam proctor.
Schedule and pay for your licensing examination using the PSI web site;
Sit for the licensing exam at the PSI location you select and pass your examination;
At the PSI exam center, pay for fingerprinting and the required background check;
PSI will send your fingerprints electronically for the criminal background check; and
Print your license at the Agency web site once you complete these items.

Your approved pre-licensing course will contain seven topics of study:

Agency;
Contracts;
Real Estate Law;
Practice;
Brokerage;
Finance; and
Property Management.

The applicant’s course provider must be licensed by the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission as a Career School and have approved vocational instructors to teach the course.

Oregon-approved courses can be delivered in a classroom, by correspondence, or over the Internet. Internet and correspondence schools must have their course delivery method approved by the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO).

The Agency might deny your background check you have:

had a criminal conviction;
had a state license revoked or suspended;
been disciplined by a professional body;
filed for bankruptcy;
fallen behind on child support payments, or
have been involved in civil lawsuits that would give the impression you are less than honest.

Oregon grants licenses on a case-by-case basis. This means that applicants will be given an opportunity to explain any adverse background check findings.

Oregon has licensing agreements with Alabama, Alberta, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming. If you hold a resident real estate license from one of these jurisdictions, you should contact the Oregon Real Estate Agency for information and special conditions about obtaining an Oregon real estate broker license. In most cases, you will still be required to complete the Oregon educational requirement, but you may receive waiver on the national part of the state licensing exam.
