FAQ: What tests do I need to take to get my Texas real estate license?

What tests do I need to take to get my Texas real estate license?

There are two sets of tests you must take in order to get your Texas real estate salespersons license.

First, you must pass the final exams for each of the 6, 30-hour pre-license courses. These are proctored final exams that are administered by the real estate school as part of the pre-license course.

Once you pass the school’s 6 final exams, you can then sit for the State exam.
The State exam consists of a national portion and a state law portion. The national portion includes 85 multiple-choice questions, while the state law portion includes 40 multiple-choice questions.
There is a total time limit of 240 minutes (150 minutes for the national portion and 90 minutes for the state law portion).
You must answer at least 56 questions correctly on the national portion in order to pass, and at least 21 questions correctly on the state law portion.
You must pass BOTH the national and state law portions in order to pass the overall exam.

The State exam is taken in-person at a Pearson VUE testing center.

The locations of each testing center are listed on the last page of the Candidate Handbook.
