To obtain a real estate license in Idaho, you need to fulfill the following requirements:

  1. Age: You must be at least 18 years old.
  2. Education: Complete a pre-licensing education of 90 hours. This education must be provided by an approved real estate school and covers principles, practices, and Idaho real estate law.
  3. Exam: Pass the Idaho real estate licensing examination. The exam consists of two parts: the National portion and the State portion. You must schedule and pass the exam through a third-party testing provider.
  4. Background check: Submit fingerprints for a background check. These can be done at any Idaho State Police station or through an authorized fingerprinting vendor.
  5. Application: Complete the online application through the Idaho Real Estate Commission's website. Provide all necessary documents, including proof of education, background check results, and payment for fees.
  6. Sponsorship: Find a sponsoring broker who will employ or affiliate with you as a real estate salesperson. You must provide the name and license number of your sponsoring broker on the application.
  7. Errors and Omissions Insurance: Obtain errors and omissions insurance, which protects you from potential claims arising from real estate transactions. The minimum coverage required is $100,000 for individual licensees.
  8. License activation: Once the application is approved, you will receive a license number. To activate the license, you must affiliate with your sponsoring broker within 90 days.

Remember to check the Idaho Real Estate Commission's website for any updates or additional requirements before starting the licensing process.
