Real Estate License Renewals
RI real estate licensees must renew their license every 2 years.  For those who were licensed prior to 1/1/2020, be prepared to renew by 4/30/2022.  For those that were licensed after 1/1/2020, your license has an issue date on it, which is your “anniversary”.  You will renew your license every 2 years just prior to your anniversary date.  Renewal notices come via email from the RI Department of Business Regulation’s (DBR) Real Estate Division so keep your email address current with the RI DBR.  Effective 1/1/2022, all licensees must complete 3 hours of Fair Housing Education as part of their 24 hours of continuing education in order to renew.
