Beginning in February, Illinois brokers whose current email address is on file with IDFPR will receive email reminders and a PIN number for online renewal from IDFPR. Illinois REALTORS® broker members who have not opted out of email notifications will receive an email reminder on February 1, 2018.
Tips for renewing your Illinois broker license online:
- Print the Instructions for Online Renewal Using a Credit Card on IDFPR’s License Renewal Page.
- Your license must be sponsored to be eligible for renewal.
- Have your PIN number available when completing the online renewal.
- If you can’t find your PIN number, you may use another identifier such as date of birth and social security number.
- Once you have completed the online renewal process, an email will be sent to the address you have provided the Department with instructions on printing your license.
- If you have a name change, your renewal must be done by mail.
- You may review broker license renewal requirements on the Illinois REALTORS® Licensing & Training Center Broker License Renewal page.
- If you are required to complete CE or post license hours, do not renew your license until your education is completed. Click here for No Travel, No Hassle, No Exam education options.
- Check to see how many education hours you have taken during the current renewal cycle using the Illinois REALTORS® Licensing & Training Center Education Lookup (only for courses taken and passed through Illinois REALTORS® Licensing & Training Center.)
- If you fail to renew your license on or before April 30, 2018, your license will become inactive on May 1, 2018 and you may not practice until your license is renewed. You will need to complete the required education and pay a $50 late renewal fee to IDFPR in addition to the standard renewal fee.
