Are mutual recognition and reciprocity the same thing?

Chapter 2

No.  Reciprocity is an agreement between two states that allows the licensee of one state to use their license in another state.  Your driver’s license is a good example of reciprocity.  Florida does not allow reciprocity with any other state for Real Estate Licensees. Florida does have Mutual Recognition Agreements with a number of states that will recognize the education and experiencean applicant has received in another state.  Mutual Recognition applicants are exempt from the Pre-License course, but must pass a 40 Question Exam on Florida Real Estate Law.  A passing score of 30 points or 75% is required.  Mutual recognition is ONLY available for non-resident applicants.
