To earn and maintain an Oklahoma real estate license, you have to satisfy certain educational requirements set by the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission (OREC). There is coursework you need to take before licensing, to prepare for your official license exam. There are also post-license hours to help you earn your non-provisional license. Finally, there are continuing education requirements that will qualify you for renewal.
Below, we'll go over how many hours of training are required, on which topics, by what deadlines, and the other necessary steps.
What Are Oklahoma's Real Estate Pre-Licensing Education Requirements?
OREC requires 90 hours of pre-license coursework from an approved training provider (or 6 hours of college credit in a real estate discipline).
Unfortunately, AgentCampus by 360training doesn't offer Oklahoma pre-license training at the moment, only continuing education. You can find an accepted pre-license school on OREC's website.

What is the Oklahoma Real Estate Licensing Exam Like?
The Oklahoma Salesperson Exam is administered by a third-party testing company, PSI, at four test centers in Oklahoma: Oklahoma City, McAlester, Tulsa, and Woodward.
The test consists of 130 questions over 3 hours. The questions are divided between two portions: a national and a state portion. You need to pass both parts before you can apply for your license.
You'll receive a score report before you leave the testing center.
What is the Deadline for my Oklahoma Real Estate License Application?
You need to submit your application within 36 months of completing your pre-license education and one (1) year of passing both portions of the exam.
What Are the Real Estate Post-Licensing Requirements in Oklahoma?
After you pass the state licensing exam, Oklahoma issues a Provisional Sales Associate (PSA) license that is valid for one year.
Before your first anniversary as a PSA, you need to complete a 45-hour post-license course. Then OREC will issue your Sales Associate (SA) license.
We don't offer Oklahoma post-license education at this time.
How Often Does an Oklahoma Real Estate License Have to Be Renewed?
Once you've earned your Sales Associate license, you need to renew once every 3 years.
Your renewal deadline is the 10th day of the month in which your license was initially issued.
What Are Oklahoma's Continuing Education Requirements for Real Estate?
Oklahoma requires you to complete 21 Continuing Education hours from an approved provider (like us!) every 3 years, including:
- 6 core hours consisting of 6 core subjects, including:
- Broker Relationships Act (BRA)
- Fair Housing (FHR)
- Professional Conduct (PSC)
- Contracts and Forms (CON)
- Code and Rule Updates (CAR)
- Hot Topic/Current Issues (HOT)
- 15 hours of approved electives or additional core subjects
Provisional Sales Associates are exempt from CE requirements. They begin once you've earned your 3-year Sales Associate license.
What Kind of Jobs Can I Get with an Oklahoma Real Estate License?
With an Oklahoma real estate license, you can pursue a variety of careers, including:
- Residential real estate agent
- Commercial real estate agent
- Real estate broker
- Property manager
No matter what role you choose, there are a wide array of specialties and niches you can make your own. You'll make more money in some than others, and unsurprisingly, the more profitable areas often call for extra certifications or licenses.

Professions like real estate have a wide range of earnings because income is largely based on commission. Some agents earn little because they lack the skills or motivation. Meanwhile, top earners can rake it in. The upper 90th percentile of Oklahoma sales agents make $106,440.
