Before Registering for the Exam

Before a candidate can register to take their Missouri Real Estate Exam, they must complete 72 hours of pre-licensing education. This education splits into two sections: the 48-hour salesperson pre-examination course and the 24-hour Missouri real estate practice (MREP) course. Take the 24-hour course any time before the real estate application is submitted.

After you finish your Missouri real estate pre-licensing education, you need to take a course final exam. Candidates must then submit their fingerprints and file a real estate salesperson application with the Missouri Real Estate Commission (MREC).
