How To Renew Your Tennessee Real Estate License

The Tennessee Real Estate Commission manages the licensing of affiliate brokers, brokers, principal brokers, and other real estate related licenses. The commission rules state that affiliate brokers, and brokers licensed after January 2001, must complete 16 hours of continuing education credits for every 2 year licensing period. The Tennessee real estate license renewal fee and educational requirements must be completed 60 days prior to the date of the license expiration (Rule 62-13-307 (a)). Brokers must complete a 120-hour post-licensing class within their first 3 years, and then follow the standard CE 16 hour requirement.

Of the 16 total hours, 4 hours of study must be in the TREC "core course"; a commission-designed course that is necessary for each licensee to complete as part of the continuing education requirement. The remaining 12 hours of education can be filled in with elective courses. Even though a licensee may have a total of 16 credit hours, if the "core" course has not been completed then he/she cannot receive his/her Tennessee real estate license renewal.

Affiliate brokers (and brokers) are also required to carry Errors And Omissions Insurance. The commission will randomly audit their licensees to confirm that the agents are carrying the necessary insurance.

Completed course information is submitted to the TREC by the school. Licensees can look up their completed CE hour progress by using the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance's online license renewal system.
