How to Renew Real Estate License: Oregon Expired Real Estate License

(OnlineEd – Portland, OR) The Oregon Real Estate Agency will renew an expired real estate license to either active or inactive status, when the licensee renews within one year of the date the license expired. The license must be renewed online at the Agency web site:

  • Once the expired licensee has created or accessed their account,the licenseewill be required to electronically:
    • Pay the required renewal fee;
    • Complete the online renewal form;
    • Certify that continuing education requirements have been met; and
    • Electronically attest to the truth of the statements made during the online renewal process.
  • Once the renewal process has been completed, the license will be renewed for another term.

When the Agency renews an expired license, the renewed license is effective the date the renewal requirements are met. The renewal is not retroactive to the date the license expired and an expired license retains the status of expired during the expiration period. An expired license renewed following the renewal procedures expires two years from the date of the original expiration date.
