How to Renew Your Real Estate License: Oregon Inactive Broker Activating a License (2015)

If you have renewed an active license at least once and completed a Advanced Practices course: 

If your license is currently inactive, but you completed the Advanced Real Estate Practices course and renewed your license on active status at least once, these are the steps to take to reactivate your license:

  • Complete our FREE (limited time offer)  3-hour Law and Rule Required Course;
  • If your license has been inactive for more than two consecutive years, take and pass the Broker Reactivation Examination;
  • Reactivate your license at the Oregon Real Estate Agency’s  eLicense site and pay the appropriate fee; and
  • Get your principal broker to log in to eLicense to associate/transfer you to the real estate business. You cannot be licensed until this step is completed.


If you have never renewed an active license and never completed Advanced Real Estate Practices: 

  1. You obtained your very first broker license after June 30, 2002, it has been inactive the entire time and you have renewed an inactive license at least once; or
  2. You held an Oregon real estate license, but let it expire or otherwise lapse. You became re-licensed as a broker after June 30, 2002 by meeting the current licensing requirements, but have had an inactive license since then. You have renewed your inactive license at least once.

To reactivate your license, you must: 

  • Complete our 27-hour Broker Advanced Practices course (BAP)and our FREE (limited time offer) 3-hour Law and Rule Required Course (LARRC)If you completed the Advanced Real Estate Practices course between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2012, it contained Broker Advanced Practices and the Law and Rule Required Course. Courses must be completed in the two years prior to reactivation;
  • If your license has been inactive for more than two consecutive years, take and pass the Broker Reactivation Examination. OnlineEd offers an optional 27-hour continuing education course as a refresher course to help you prepare for this reactivation exam.
