Renewal Requirements

Use the table at right to determine how many hours of continuing education you need to renew your real estate license and in which credit categories those hours must be taken.

If you took classes in the grace period for your previous renewal, contact the school before registering.

You may take classes and upload your classes to at any time within each 24-month educational period.  License renewal is done within the last 90 days of the license period.

Before you register for classes or renew your license, you must know your real estate license number.  Your license number starts with the letters "BR" for brokers and "SA" for salespeople, followed by 9 numbers.  It is NOT your NRDS number, nor is it your MLS ID number.   You may find your real estate license number by accessing the Arizona Department of Real Estate Public Database at

Below are some excerpts from the ADRE law book, which may provide additional clarification regarding renewal requirements.
