Updated July 19, 2020 to reflect Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-71-20.

On June 30, 2020, Governor Newsom granted an extension for California Department of Real Estate (DRE) licensees and exam applicants.

The order extends the timelines and deadlines related to:

  • exam application expiration dates;
  • license expiration dates;
  • payment of license application fees;
  • payment of renewal fees; and
  • continuing education (CE) requirements.

If your license or exam application expiration date occurs after April 16, 2020, your deadlines have been extended through December 31, 2020. Under previous executive orders, the extensions gave an additional 120 days from the licensee’s original deadline or expiration. But now all deadlines have been extended through the end of 2020.

If the order applies to you, there is no need to contact the DRE for an extension, it is automatic.
