How to Obtain a License
After you have met the eligibility requirements and passed the examination, you may apply for your real estate salesperson's or broker's license. You must submit your application for license to the Missouri Real Estate Commission within six months of the date of your 48-hour pre-examination course completion. If no education is required, proof of satisfactory completion of BOTH portions of the required examination must be completed within six months prior to the date the application for license is submitted to the Missouri Real Estate Commission. Follow the instructions on the reverse side of your passing score report to apply for your salesperson's or broker's license.
All applicants for an original Missouri license are required to be fingerprinted for a Missouri and federal criminal history background check. Therefore, all new applicants must contact 3M/Cogent for fingerprinting prior to making application for licensure.

How to Contact 3M/Cogent for Fingerprinting
You must first register with the Missouri Automated Criminal History Site (MACHS) at www.machs.mo.gov. You will need to provide the MREC's four-digit registration number, 0004, to authorize the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the FBI to send the results to the Missouri Real Estate Commission.
Upon registration, you will be directed to a list of fingerprinting locations available throughout the state, with some sites offering night and/or weekend hours. You are required to bring Photo ID with you to the fingerprint site. Acceptable forms of ID are a valid driver's license, military ID or passport. While each location is on a first come, first served basis, the actual fingerprinting process will take approximately 10 minutes.
The fee is $40.30 – 3M/Cogent receives $8.30; the MSHP receives $20.00; and the FBI receives $12.00. The Missouri Real Estate Commission does not receive any portion of this fee.
