3 steps to getting your real estate license

Step 1:

Take the Pre-License Class

The state of Florida requires that you complete 63-hours of commission prescribed pre-license education. We offer this class in several different formats including nights, weekdays, and weekends!

Step 2:

Pass the State Exam

Once you’ve pass the 63-hour pre-license course and successfully passed the background check, you’re ready for the state exam. Study hard though, only 48% pass the test on the 1st try. 

Step 3:

Start Your New Career

Congratulations, you’ve pass the state exam! You’re ready to start your new career as a licensed real estate agent!

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are our most commonly asked questions regarding our 63-hour pre-license classroom course. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 321-333-5222 or email help@onebluerealestateschool.com.

Our main offices are located near the intersection of S. Orange Ave and Hoffner Ave, just south of downtown Orlando, in the Edgewood Isle Shopping Center. Our address is 5671 S Orange Avenue, Orlando, Florida 32809. Our telephone number is 321-333-5222.

This is probably the most common question we get asked and the simple answer is we have no way to know and even if we did know, we wouldn’t be able to share it. First, the State of Florida does not track what school you attended for your pre-license class, therefore, they do not have any data to share on a school-by-school basis. Further, individual test results are confidential and only the student and the state know if you passed or failed the exam. 

Secondly, the Florida Real Estate Commission, the governing body over the real estate industry in Florida, prohibits real estate schools from even sharing what our class pass rate due to the perception that it would be an indicator (or guarantee) of your success. 

What we can say is that our students seem to love attending classes here at OneBlue! We offer a wide variety of classes you can take after you get your license and on average our pre-license students take 3-courses with us! 

Our classroom course comes with everything you’ll need including the course textbook, highlighter, pen and pencil, and exclusive study aids found only at OneBlue Real Estate School. 

Absolutely! Unlike our competitors we welcome any technology in the classroom that will help you learn. With that said, we do have some guidelines that we ask all students to follow including ensuring that the use of the device is not a distraction to the students around you. Also, we can not guarantee a plug will be near your seat in the classroom so we kindly request that you bring your device(s) full charged.

We believe in putting our student’s learning experience ahead of profits and it is proven that adults learn better in smaller classes. For that reason, our largest licensure class is 24-students.

Yes, we do offer our 63-hour pre-license class online for those that prefer a self-paced learning format. However, we strongly discourage the online course and the material is complex and there is no instructor support online. By taking the classroom course, you get the tremendous advantage of being able to talk with our instructors, ask questions, and if needed get one-on-one assistance.
