License Renewal

Real Estate Licensing Requirements

The real estate license must be renewed annually through the Department of Consumer Protection (DCP).

Continuing Education (CE) is due on the even-numbered renewal years and must be completed prior to renewing your license in all even-numbered years. GFBOR members can view your continuing education history (only classes taken through GFBOR) by logging into your Member Portal.

  • Hours Required for Continuing Education: 12 credit hours per two-year cycle, including:
  • One three-hour mandatory course approved by the Commission concerning current real estate and fair housing legislation, licensing laws and regulations; and
  • Nine hours of real estate elective courses.
  • No Continuing Education is due at the first renewal after being licensed.

Alternatively, licensees may opt to pass the 40-question Connecticut CE Examination during the CE cycle. Contact PSI Examination Services (the testing company) directly: 1-800-733-9267 or go to www.psiexams.com. NOTE: When calling PSI to schedule, be sure to specify that you want the "40 Question" exam to renew your CT license.
