Renewing Your License
About On-Line Renewals
You can renew your license 24 hours a day, seven days a week, up to 120 days (4 months) prior to the renewal date. You must renew by midnight of your renewal due date to avoid lapsing and incurring a late fee.
You will need a password to renew online. If you already have a password for the online transactions, use the same password. If you do not, click here for instructions on how to establish a password.
No Grace Period
There is NO grace period if the due date falls on a weekend or holiday.
Renewing an individual broker license does not renew a firm (company) license. All firm licenses, including sole proprietorships, must be renewed separately.
If You Missed the Renewal Date
Less Than One Year
If you missed the license renewal date, your license is considered “lapsed” and you will need to “reinstate” the license. You will be able to reinstate your license online. A late fee will be charged.
Prior to reinstating a license online each licensee, must submit a “secure and verifiable document” for identification purposes and a “notarized affidavit” as detailed in the Lawful Presence Verification form, if not already on file with GREC.
Click here to access the Lawful Presence Verification form.
This information must be submitted to the GREC either in person, via fax to 404/656-6650, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org , via courier, or via U.S. mail. The information must be legible.
Please allow five business days from the submission of your information for the GREC to notate your license record so that you will be able to reinstate online.
You will be reinstated to an active status online only if:
- It is less than 30 days past due and
- Your license was in an active status prior to the renewal date and
- All required continuing education (CE) credits have been completed and posted to your record.
In all other situations your license will be reinstated to an inactive status. If you are reinstated to an inactive status, all required CE credits must be completed and posted to your record before you can hold an active license. To change your license status from inactive to active, please submit a Change Application.

You will NOT be able to reinstate your license online.
You will need to use a Reinstatement Application and a late fee will be charged.
If you are reinstated to an inactive status, all required CE credits must be completed and posted to your record before you can hold an active license. To change your license status from inactive to active, please submit a Change Application.
After the commission processes your application, a new wall license and pocket card will be mailed to you within two business days.
