You might want to get a real estate license in Missouri if you are local to the area and would like to get your foot in the door of a professional trade with little formal training or upfront costs. To get a real estate license in Missouri, you will need to adhere to a few steps.
Wait until you are 18 if you are not already. The state requires all professionals to be a minimum age of 18 or above to get a real estate license in Missouri.
Assuming you are of age, enroll in an accredited Missouri real estate school to take the 48-hour pre-exam course.
Before you take the Missouri state real estate exam, make sure you have studied enough to pass. Though you can move forward to the next step without passing this exam, you cannot finalize your real estate license application and get a real estate license without a passing grade. Note that you do not have to take the exam immediately after you finish your pre-exam course. You are free to take the test at a later date.
Take the Missouri real estate exam and pass the test.
Take the 24-hour Missouri Real Estate Practice Course (MREP). This course may be taken before the Missouri real estate exam but cannot be taken before the pre-exam course. This step must be completed before a formal application for a Missouri real estate license is submitted.
After all previous steps are completed, submit an application for a real estate license to the Missouri Division of Professional Registration within six months of completing the pre-exam.
You should initially be issued a temporary real estate license to work in Missouri. In time, your official Missouri real estate license will be mailed to you.
