Basic Requirements to Apply for a Texas Real Estate License

  • Citizen of the United States or lawfully admitted alien
    • A DACA recipient does not qualify as a lawfully admitted alien.
  • 18 years of age or older
  • Meet TREC's qualifications for honesty, trustworthiness, and integrity (TREC recommends submitting an optional 'Fitness Determination' form if you have any criminal offenses, unpaid judgments, etc.) The Fitness Determination process is cheaper than paying for an application, examination, and education necessary to receive a license if you do not meet the qualifications for honesty, trustworthiness, and integrity. Please do not submit a Fitness Determination form if you do not have any criminal offenses or already have a pending application with TREC. Please refer to the TREC website for more information on the topic of fitness determination.
