The Pocket License
The real estate license for individuals and the real estate pocket card have been combined. The license now also serves as the pocket card. These new individual licenses have been reduced in size (4.36" x 2.73") to accomodate display on a digital device. If you decide to print your license, it may be printed on paper of any color or quality yet must be legible.
Display of License Requirements
All licensed individuals (*) must carry in their possession either the digital image (on a cell phone, tablet, laptop, or other electronic device) OR the printed pocket card license whenever transacting business (**). In either case, the pocket card license must be legible. Regardless of which option is chosen, the individual licensee must be able to produce the physical or electronic image of their pocket card license upon request.
* The term "licensed individuals" refers to all NJ actively licensed Brokers of Record (Employing Brokers included), Brokersalespersons, Salespersons and Referral Agents.
** Pursuant to N.J.S.A.45:15-14, all licensees must have their pocket card license in their possession at all times when engaged in the business of a real estate broker, brokersalesperson, salesperson or referral agent.
