 DRE Registration

In order to process online transactions with the Department of Real Estate (DRE), you must first register as an authorized user.  The initial step in this registration process is to verify your identity by entering your real estate license identification number, social security number, and date of birth.

After that information is confirmed from the DRE's files, you will be requested to enter your Username and Password.  Your Username and Password can be alphabetical, numerical or any combination of the two.  They should be at least 5 characters in length but no more than 20 characters.  Future use of the eLicensing System will require that you first login with your Username and Password.

It is important that you choose a Username and Password that you will remember in order to access the eLicensing System. However, if you forget your Username and/or Password, you can reset your registration by selecting that option at the login process.

The registration process also asks for an email address.  It is not necessary to provide an email address in order to process eLicensing transactions.  However, your email address is used by the eLicensing System to keep you informed of various events associated with your transaction request.  In the case of a fee-based transaction, such as a renewal or a duplicate license request, your email address can also be used by the payment authorization company to provide you with an electronic receipt of payment approval.

Once you have successfully registered, you will have access to the eLicensing System.
