Q. I am a Florida resident and have a Florida Real Estate license and wish to become licensed as a non-resident
in Georgia. What do I need to do to obtain the Georgia license?

A. You must take and pass the state portion of Georgia 's licensing examination for the license which you seek. Read the Candidate Handbook on this web site under “How to Get a License.” It will explain how you may contact AMP (Applied Measurement Professionals), the firm that administers examinations for the Commission. In order to apply to take the licensing examination, you must submit to AMP a certification of license history (no more than one year old) from the Florida Real Estate Commission. The certification of license history must show that the applicant:

  1. is currently in good standing (the license cannot be lapsed or expired) in Florida ;
  2. has passed an examination for the type of license sought in Georgia ; and
  3. has met all prelicense and continuing education requirements required for that Florida license.
  4. A copy of the Georgia Crime Information Report (GCIC) on the applicant must accompany all applications. Georgia residents (or previous residents, for example, if you leased or owned a residence in Georgia , attended college here, or severed in the military here) can obtain a GCIC from any local sheriff's office or police department. Applicants who have not lived in Georgia must submit a report from their resident state, province, or territory that is equivalent to the GCIC. Depending on the law enforcement agency's policy, there may be a waiting period to obtain the report. Such reports must not be more than 60 days old. If the applicant is aware of any conviction, nolo contendere plea, or first offender sentence that is not on the GCIC (or equivalent) report accompanying the application, the applicant must disclose such conviction(s).

If Florida (or any other state) has imposed a disciplinary action taken against your license, you must submit certified copies of all such disciplinary actions.
