A Quickstart Guide : How To Get A Real Estate License In Indiana

Step 1: Make sure you meet the basic requirements

The basic requirements to get an Indiana real estate license are simple. Do you meet all of these requirements?

  • You are at least 18 years old
  • You have a high school diploma or equivalent

Step 2: Register for real estate licensing classes


A real estate license is required for most real estate jobs. Indiana has educational requirements you must fulfill before they will let you get a real estate license, which are completed with the following:

  • A 90 hour pre-licensing course, OR
  • Hold a real estate license in a state that has “substantially similar requirements for licensing as Indiana.” These situations are examined on a case-by-case basis.

Step 3: Apply to take the Indiana real estate exam


You can apply to take the Indiana real estate exam after you have completed the licensing education requirements.

PearsonVue is the testing agency for the State of Indiana and they manage the exam process through their facilities. The Indiana real estate exam fee is $61.

You have one year to pass the state exam after completing the pre-licensing courses. That one-year timeline was extended by six months in 2020 due to COVID, so check with the state if you think your pre-licensing course credentials may have expired. They may be lenient if you are cutting it close.

Step 4: Complete the Indiana real estate license application


The application will ask you some basic questions about you and your background, including any other real estate licenses you have held or currently hold. The Indiana license application fee is $60.
