FAQ: How do I get my Virginia real estate salespersons license?

How do I get my Virginia real estate salespersons license?

There are 4 steps you need to take to get your Virginia real estate salespersons license:

Step #1: Complete the Virginia 60-hour Pre-license Course
First, you must complete the Virginia 60-hour pre-licensing course. At the end of the course is a proctored final exam. Once you pass the proctored final exam, you will earn your Certificate of Completion for the course. Meanwhile, the school will notify the PSI testing center (the testing center for the State exam) that you have completed the course.

Step #2: Schedule and Pass the State Exam
Once you complete the course and pass the proctored final exam, you are now ready to move on to Step #2… scheduling and passing the State exam.
The State exam is a proctored exam that must be taken at one of the State approved PSI testing centers.

The State exam consists of two portions: (1) National portion and (2) State portion. The National portion consists of 80 questions with a time-limit of 105 minutes. You must answer 56 out of 80 questions correctly (70%) in order to pass. The State portion consists of 40 questions with a time-limit of 45 minutes. You must answer 30 out of 40 questions correctly (75%) correctly in order to pass. You must pass both portions of the exam in order to pass the overall exam.

You can register and schedule your exam online using the following link: PSI Exams Online
You can also call PSI at 1-800-733-9267.

Your exam scores are valid for one year, meaning you must apply for your license within one year of your initial examination date.

Step #3: Get Your Fingerprints Taken
The Real Estate Board requires all applicants to get their fingerprints taken. You must get your fingerprints taken at the PSI testing center (after you pass the state exam).
Your fingerprints will take a few weeks to process before they are sent to the Real Estate Board. Once received by the Board, your fingerprints will be valid for up to 45 days, which means you must submit your license application within that time-frame.

Step #4: Apply for Your Real Estate License
Your last step is to submit your Virginia Real Estate Salespersons application via mail. You must include all required supporting documentation and pay the $170 application fee.

Once your application is approved by the Board, your license will be mailed to your sponsoring broker.

Congratulations, you are now a licensed Virginia real estate salesperson!
