Pennsylvania State Real Estate Licensing Exam Information

Current Salesperson Application Processing Timeframes

Real estate exams are administered by PSI Services LLC, a private company. Exams appointments are available on a first come, first served basis. Most students are able to schedule exams about one week in advance. The PSI Pennsylvania Salesperson License Exam should be taken after completion of seventy-five (75) hours of basic real estate courses and our optional PSI Exam Prep course. To register for the exam you will provide PSI with a copy of the Certificate of Completion for the required courses that will be issued by the education provider. Keep a copy of this document to provide to the Pennsylvania Real Estate Commission when requesting licensure. When you have passed both portions of the examination (within a three year period), you may apply for licensure by submitting a completed application to the Pennsylvania Real Estate Commission. You may apply online at www.mylicense.state.pa.us.
