Take a 40-hour Real Estate Salesperson pre-licensing class
Step 2: Apply for your real estate exam by submitting a completed application to PSI Testing Services. You will need proof of completion of your 40-hour pre-licensing course that will come from Host Group Real Estate Academy or the accredited school of your choice.
Step 3: Schedule your exam. Once your application is submitted and approved, the testing company, currently PSI, will notify you of your eligibility to schedule your exam. There are two parts to the exam, National and State, administered on the same day.
Step 4: Pass the exam. You must pass both portions of the exam within two years of completing the pre-licensing course. If you pass one part of the exam but not the other, you only have to retake the failed portion.
Step 5: Get your license. You will pay for and receive your real estate salesperson license immediately upon passing both portions of the exam. Your license will cost between $103 and $150.
Step 6: Find a Broker to work under and start earning those commissions!
