Inactivate or Reactivate License

​You may inactivate your license if you are temporarily not doing business in real estate. Your license must be active to conduct professional real estate activity.​

  • Log into your eLicense account to inactivate your license.

​​​​​You can only reactivate your license if you have an inactive license. ​Check your license status in eLicense.*

  1. Complete the required continuing education.​
  2. If you have been inactive for more than 2 consecutive years:
    • Register for​ the reactivation exam (PDF) by sending an email to orea.info@oregon.gov​. Include your full licensed name, license number, type of ​license, and email address. PSI will notify you by email when you are eligible to schedule and pay for the reactivation exam.
    • Schedule the reactivation exam with PSI and pay the fee.
    • Take and pass the reactivation exam.
  3. Log into your eLicense account to reactivate your license.
    • Enter your continuing education course information, if needed.
    • Pay the $150 fee.

    • Brokers, remind your principal broker to log in to eLicense and add or transfer your license to the business.
    • Principal brokers, decide how you will do business:
      • Under a new Registered Business Name - Register a Business​
