The Licensing Division is one of two divisions that comprise the Education and Licensing Department. We regulate and oversee two levels of licensing - initial and renewal licenses. Applicants for licensing are examined for competency by a professional testing company.
Among the responsibilities of the Licensing Division are:
(1) The review and processing of initial license applications for individuals applying to take the Louisiana real estate license exam;
(2) Issuing licenses to persons who enter the profession;
(3) The annual renewal of licenses; and
(4) Maintaining current license data and history for each licensee.
In addition, all license transactions, such as name or address changes and license transfers, are processed in the Licensing Division.
