How to Apply for a License

Military service members, veterans, and spouses may qualify for an expedited application process if they hold a current license in another state or jurisdiction with substantially equivalent licensing requirements for the same license type in Texas, or if they have been licensed by TREC for the same license type within the last five years.

Credit for Military Experience

If you are a service member or veteran you may request to have your military education, training, or experience evaluated for credit toward the requirements for a license. Fill out the Credit for Military Experience form and submit it with your application. 

Fee Waiver

TREC will waive the base application and examination fees if

  • Your military service, training, or education substantially meets the requirements for a license; or
  • You hold a current license issued by another jurisdiction whose licensing requirements are equivalent to the requirements for this license in Texas.

Extended Deadlines for Renewals During Active Duty

If you are on active duty during your renewal period and  hold a license, you are entitled to two years of additional time to complete

  • Any continuing education requirements; and
  • Any other requirement related to the renewal of the military service member’s license.
