Certificate of Completion will be made available to you only when you have successfully completed the required course. You will obtain the Certificate of Completion from the school where you took the pre-license course .It must have the school director’s and teacher’s signatures on it in the appropriate place affirming that you have successfully completed the required course.
The 6-page application form will ask if you have ever been convicted of any crime, have charges pending, or are on probation. It will also ask if you are in arrears on any child support payments or in arrears on any student loans. It will also ask if you have declared bankruptcy and in which court. While some of these will not keep you from getting a real estate license, some will. If you have any of these situations in your past, please contact the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission at 405-521-3387 and discuss the matter with an investigator. He or she will likely be able to give you information which will help you with the situation. Please do not wait until you have finished the course to attend to this matter.
In addition to the above, the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission will require proof of your legal presence in the United States. The 6-page form contains this information regarding the suitable documents for such proof, birth certificate, passport or green card.
If you have questions about any of these, please discuss them with your instructor.
If you sent Part A already, you do not need to do this form.
