Recent DRE Changes to License Renewal Requirements for January 1, 2023 or Later
Licensees with a renewal date of January 1, 2023, or later are required to take an Implicit Bias course and an Interactive Fair Housing course as part of their 45 hours of CE. Total required 45 hours of CE remains the same.
DRE Renewal Guidelines
- Licensees with a renewal date of 1/1/23 or later
Must submit CE coursework that includes the interactive Fair Housing
and Implicit Bias coursework. If the licensee has completed their 45
hours already with the former package and old coursework, they will be
required to take these two courses also.
- Licensees with a renewal date prior to 1/1/23
May submit the new coursework in Implicit Bias and the Interactive
Fair Housing for credit and it will be accepted even though these
courses are not required prior to 1/1/23
May submit the previous coursework PRIOR to 1/1/23 even though it
does not include the two new courses.
- Licensees with a renewal date prior to 1/1/23 that submit renewal information after 1/1/23 – (Late Renewals)
These agents will be required to submit the new coursework in Implicit
Bias and the Interactive Fair Housing Course.

MLS Rule Changes (12.15.1 & 12.15.2)
On January 3, 2023, the 12.15.1 and 12.15.2 MLS Rules & Regulation changes will go into effect. These changes are being made as recommended by C.A.R.
Rationale: The two rules conflict with the Model MLS Rule 11.16, as revised in October 2021, which requires MLSs to permit MLS Participants & Subscribers to share the listing broker’s offer of compensation in IDX and VOW displays, and supports greater transparency in sharing the offer of compensation.
