Time To Complete

Since our courses are done by home-study, how quickly you complete the program is up to you. However, the California Department of Real Estate has certain minimum time of completion guidelines:

Minimum Time needed

The minimum time to complete courses according to the Department of Real Estate (DRE) is 2 1/2 weeks (18 calendar days per course = 54 days from the date you receive your material.  Finish all three courses in only 54 Days!

Number of Courses

Minimum Completion Time

2 1/2 weeks

5 weeks

7 1/2 weeks (finish in only 54 Days)

Maximum Time allowed

The maximum time allowed for completion of your course is 1 year from the date of enrollment. Completion of the course means taking and passing the course final examination.

Once you have successfully completed the qualifying pre-license course final exams, you will receive an email with your official Course Completion Certificate along with a link to download the state examination application. From the day you mail your application to the DRE, it usually takes 6 to 8 weeks for DRE processing and to get a state exam test date. This waiting period can vary depending on how many applicants are applying for the state exam at any given time.

Typical Time Line:

1. Finish three courses: 7 1/2 weeks minimum (2 1/2 weeks per course = 54 days). Of course you may progress at your own pace.
2. DRE application processing and wait for a state exam test date: 6 to 8 weeks (this can vary).
3. License is issued immediately if you submit combined application RE435.
Total: Approximately 14-16 weeks (This is only an estimate and represents the fastest possible time frame).
