Additional information

Inactive Wisconsin license: If your license is currently inactive and has been inactive for less than five years, you need to complete the previous biennium CE and pay the license fee and late fee to renew your license. Further questions can be directed to the DSPS at dsps.wi.gov.

CE exemption rule changes: Most new licensees need to complete CE. Newly licensed salespersons who receive a license after October 1 of the even year of the biennium are not required to complete CE for that biennium. However, all new broker licensees must complete CE. For full details, see Wis. Admin. Code § REEB 25: Education.
