This California Department of Real Estate (DRE) registration application is for use under the Military Spouse Licensing Relief Act of 2023.
Under the act, if an active-duty servicemember or their spouse is professionally licensed in another state, district, or
territory of the United States and relocates to California due to military orders, their license will be considered valid in
California at a similar scope of practice for the duration of the military orders provided they meet the eligibility criteria
set forth below.
The registrant must have actively used their license during the two years immediate preceding the relocation required by the military orders.
There is NO FEE required for this registration.
If you are experiencing technical issues filling out this form, please contact email@example.com.
Please read all information before completing this application:
Registering with DRE will allow the registrant to conduct licensed real estate activity in California for the duration of the deployment in California,
so long as the real estate license(s) in the home jurisdiction(s) remains in good standing.
Non-broker registrants (Salespersons) will be required to be supervised by a California Real Estate Broker.
Registration is required in your legal name. Discrepancies between the name on this application, the name on your documents, and your legal name will
cause processing delays.
Your California Address of Record will be public information and will be posted on DRE’s website, and will be available from DRE via a download,
