NOTE: DRE regulations limit credit for study time to 8 hours per day and do not allow more
than 15 credit hours of exams to be completed in a 24-hour period. Therefore it will take a minimum of 6 days to complete the entire 45-hour package.
The California Department of Real Estate limits students to earning a maximum of 8 hours of study time per 24-hour period. Additionally, the DRE limits students to attempting a maximum of 15 credit hours of exams per 24-hour period. As such, the fastest all 45 hours can be completed in this format is 6 days.
If you fail to renew your license on-time (prior to license-expiration date), you may renew your license during the two year late renewal period immediately following your license-expiration date. However, you cannot perform activities requiring a real estate license until your license has been renewed.
If the license has been expired for over 2 year, the individual will have to re-qualify for the applicable license by meeting all of the then current and relevant requirements for licensure, pass the qualifying examination, and reapply and pay for the new license.
Empire Learning courses offered to California licensees are approved by the California Department of Real Estate (DRE Sponsor #5017) for continuing education credit. Each of the courses is individually approved and has a specific approval number that will be displayed on your completion certificate.
Our 45-hour continuing education packages are designed to meet the full renewal requirements for your specific license.
Note: The California Bureau of Real Estate (CalBRE) has changed its name back to the California Department of Real Estate (DRE) effective July 1st, 2018.
