Because it takes a couple of weeks to process the application and you may apply before, during or after the course we recommend you apply early so you can strategically line up your exam date shortly after the course is over.
The primary way to apply is on-line. A credit card is necessary. Most of you will apply for "sales associate". Do not pick mutual recognition.
Part of your application will include mandatory electronic fingerprinting. A fingerprint card will no longer be used. The State application will explain how and where to complete it.
Go to www.MyFloridalicense.com, e-government services, and then click option "Apply for License".
After 2 weeks,call DBPR Call Center at (850) 487-1395 for your applicant status.
State Exam Arrangement
If you have been approved, call the Pearson Vue test center and line up the exam 3 days after our regular course or 3 days after the optional review course (see the "Class Schedule" page on our website for dates) while your knowledge is fresh. Please visit Pearson Vue’s web site at http://www.asisvcs.com/indhome.asp?cpcat=0910realappr for exam details. It’s best to call and speak to one of their customer service representatives for available date/times and locations. Their telephone number is 1-866-204-6289. Upon approval by the State, you can arrange for your exam before, during or after you've taken the course and finished it.
