Tips for Success in Using eLicense
(April 06, 2012 – ORENJ) Log in, don’t Register. As a licensee, you already have an account in eLicense. To access your account, select “Login.” To log in to eLicense for the first time, enter your license number as your User ID, and the last four digits of your social security number as your Password.
When you log in, you will be prompted to select and answer your three security questions (designed to help you retrieve a forgotten password in the future). You will also change your password to a secure password and confirm your e-mail address.
Do not “Register” if you are already an Oregon real estate licensee. Registration is for new license applicants only.
Make license changes effective immediately by selecting “Continue.” Changes in your license status or account information are immediate as long as you select the “Continue” button after making payment by credit card or echeck. You can renew, activate or inactivate your license, or update your e-mail address, mailing address or personal information. If you don’t click “Continue,” any change you made to your license will not show up until the next day when the Agency receives confirmation that the bank has processed your payment.
Transfer your license by having your new principal broker transfer you. Your principal broker can review Managing Your Business in eLicense for directions on how to transfer a licensee. After the principal broker completes the process, you can log in to your account to see that your license is now with the new company
