License History Verification
Applicants previously or currently licensed outside Louisiana must submit an official license history verification from the state/jurisdiction in which the license was issued. It must include a cover letter that contains the applicant's complete name, mailing address, telephone number, and a detailed license history of the applicant, that includes all pre-licensing real estate education completed, and information on any previous or pending disciplinary action against the applicant.
Education Requirement for Broker Applicants Currently Licensed or Previously Licensed in Other States
Partial credit may be granted for real estate courses completed in other licensing jurisdictions. No substitution will be allowed for the 30-hour portion of the 150-hour broker pre-licensing requirement, which covers the Louisiana Real Estate License Law, Commission Rules/Regulations, Law of Agency and Civil Law pertaining to real estate. The LREC may accept a substitution for Real Estate 203, a thirty (30) hour Broker Responsibilities course which is a mandatory part of the 150 hour requirement if it is determined that the course completed in another jurisdiction is equivalent to Real Estate 203. Credit for course work completed in other jurisdictions must be obtained by the applicant prior to submission of an application for licensing.
The LREC may accept the examination results from another state/jurisdiction as a substitution for the National portion of the Louisiana examination, if the applicant provides proof of passing an equivalent license examination within five years of the date of application for a license in Louisiana. If a waiver is granted, the applicant will be required to pass only the State portion of the Louisiana broker license examination. Please note that examination results from other states/jurisdictions will not be accepted from any applicant whose real estate license is expired.
