Qualifications to Obtain a Reciprocal License in Alabama:

  1. Hold a current license on either active or inactive status in the state where you took prelicense coursework and took the entire exam. This is called your qualifying state.
  2. Obtain a certification of licensure (license history) from your qualifying state and any other state(s) where you hold or have held a license within the past 5 years.
  3. Complete the appropriate 6 hours of Alabama law in either the salesperson or broker prelicense course.
    Choose the course that corresponds to the license for which you qualify.
  4. Pass the Alabama law portion of Alabama’s salesperson or broker licensing exam.

Applicants for a reciprocal license should request an evaluation of their status PRIOR to enrolling in the Alabama law class to qualify for the Alabama law portion of the salesperson or broker exam.
