DRE exam centers reopened to the public last Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2021. Rescheduled Exams: DRE staff are now contacting examinees to reschedule their previously cancelled exams. Those examinees whose exams were scheduled on the earliest date will be offered the chance to reschedule first. Rescheduling fees for them will be waived.
If you are not registered, you should use your Examinee ID number to create a free account now.
Because of physical distancing requirements put in place in spring 2020, DRE exam centers are limited to 50% capacity. Those requirements are still in-place.
Up-to-date contact information: Make sure the DRE has your current info by logging into your eLicensing account. If you are not registered, you should use your Examinee ID number to create a free account now.
Note to CVAR Members: Pre-Licensing courses do not expire. Agents who have taken their courses can send in their application to obtain a license, no matter when the agent took the pre-licensing courses. But there is a catch: The registration date and the date the agent actually starts taking the courses have to be within 1 year. Once the agent has taken the courses, they will need to fill out an application for review. Once it is accepted, they can schedule the exam by logging onto dre.ca.govand use e-Licensing (or sit on the phone for an hour like our patient staff member did and let DRE do the scheduling).
DRE License Deadline Extended – The deadline by which real estate license application and renewal fees need to be paid has been extended until June 30, 2021 by Executive Order. Continuing education requirements for licensees are also extended through that date. The Executive Order also allows California residents 70 years of age or older to renew their drivers’ licenses by mail. Read the full text of N-83-20 here.
