    Default Can You Obtain a Real Estate License With a Petty Theft Record

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: California.

    I was living in Idaho at the time when I was convicted of a Petty Theft Misdemeanor in 2016. I was given 2 days of community service and a fine ($500 I think) and the Judge was going to "Withhold" my case. In Idaho you get ONE Withheld judgement.
    I now live in California and I want to know if I can get my real estate license with the petty theft misdemeanor on my record.

    **Note: I was declined to drive for AmazonFlex in June due to the charge...so I know it will still show. I don't have any issue disclosing the conviction on the application but I don't want to go through school and pay for everything if I'm going to get declined.

    Default Re: Can I Obtain a Real Estate License

    Take a look at the CA license application. Under background information it explains "conviction."

    Doesn't seem to be any doubt that you have to disclose it.

    According the guide:

    "Conviction of a crime may result in the denial of a license."

    See Page 3:

    http://dre.ca.gov/files/pdf/re4.pdf

    I suggest you call the licensing department and see if you can get your question answered.

    Anybody else would just be guessing, and guesses won't do you any good.
