The wall license must be displayed at Managing Broker's office, but you are suppose to carry the pocket license.  I have never been asked for mine, with exception at local r.e. assocation office.

Paul S. Henderson March marked my 30th year as a licensed agent and 25 years as a broker. I have never had any ask to see my real estate license. We do get a wallet sized portion of the license to carry with us.

Good post .. This came up when I Googled whether or not we are allowed to laminate our pocket sized real estate license. In Florida, we are not required to carry them however you sometimes will need them when trying to access some of your more expensive homes in guard gated communities. The security guard companies and/ or HOA's make it a requirement to produce your real estate license before being allowed passage.

I've never been asked, but if I was I think I would tell them to search my on (DBPR site) as that can't be faked or outdated.
