How To Renew Your Connecticut Real Estate License
The license cycle for real estate salespersons in Connecticut is a 2 year cycle. Salespersons have until May 31st of their license expiration year to renew, and Brokers have until March 31st. There are two ways to renewing your real estate license in Connecticut:
Method 1: Continuing Education Classes
If a CT real estate license is scheduled to expire in 2010, licensees must complete 12 hours of study time. The Connecticut Real Estate Comission has set specific course topic requirements:
- Mandatory 3 hours of "CT Buyers Agency" for 2010 CE Cycle
- Mandatory 3 hours of "CT Disclosure, RESPA, and Law Update" for 2010 CE Cycle
- and 6 hours of elective courses
After each of the courses have been completed, students will receive a continuing education course certificate. These certificates do not need to be submitted to the REC with the license renewal application, but they must be kept on-record by the student in case the student's continuing education credits are audited by the Real Estate Commission.
Method 2: Take the Continuing Education Exam
Instead of putting in the 12 hours of required study time, the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection has teamed up with PSI Exams to offer a 40-question Connecticut Continuing Education Examination. You can register for the exam by contacting PSI by telephone or by using their online enrollment system. You do not need to take the CE Exam if you have already completed your 12 hours of continuing education!

When you are taking the exam, you will be given 75 minutes to answer 40 questions based on Connecticut-specific and general real estate topics.
The state of Connecticut has an eLicensing website where licensees can update their address, verify their license status, or renew their license.
