The real estate Broker Prelicense course is your first step to obtaining your real estate license.
Students must successfully complete a Broker Prelicensing course and pass both portions (state and national) of the licensing exam to obtain a North Carolina real estate license. Learn more by visiting our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Broker Prelicensing students must attend a minimum of 90 percent of all scheduled classroom hours. Broker Prelicensing students cannot miss more than 8 hours of scheduled classroom hours. Students cannot miss the first scheduled Broker Prelicensing class. Students missing the first scheduled Prelicensing class will be required to reschedule to another Prelicensing course. These requirements apply for course repeats as well.
Students cannot make up missed time due to lateness or absences. Please ensure that you can attend 90 percent of class hours at a minimum before registering for a class.
The required textbook for the class is Modern Real Estate Practice in North Carolina, Ninth Edition , which you may purchase at the Realtor® Store. You can contact the store at 704-940-3126. If you choose to purchase the textbook from a location other than the Realtor® Store, please ensure that it is the North Carolina version, and that it is the Ninth Edition. Only that version of the textbook can be used for the course. No exceptions.

After you are licensed
When you first obtain your real estate license, it will be issued on "provisional" status. To remove this “provisional” status, you need to complete three 30-hour Postlicensing courses within three years of your license issue date. You must take at least one 30-hour Postlicensing class each year to keep your license status active. You can complete all three 30-hour Postlicensing classes within the first year if you choose to do so, but you can only take one course at a time.
