How do I change or cancel my exam date?

If you want to change or cancel your registered exam date, you must do so at least 48 hours prior to your exam date by calling PearsonVUE at (800)997-1248. You may receive a refund or transfer your exam fee to a new reservation.

Can I take my Texas state exam if I don't have a sponsoring broker?

Yes, you do not need a sponsoring broker to take the state licensing exam. Once you pass the state exam, you will receive an inactive real estate license. If you want to obtain an active license, you will ultimately have to complete a sponsorship request online using TREC’s Online Licensing Service platform.

Do I need to take the State exam if I’m licensed in another state?

If you hold an active real estate license in another state, and you have passed the national portion of the exam in that state, the Texas Real Estate Commission may waive the national portion of the Texas real estate licensing exam. You will only be required to take the state law portion of the exam.

Does the school notify TREC that I have completed my license course?

The school will not notify TREC that you have completed the 180 hours of qualifying education. Instead, TREC requires the student to submit copies of their 6 Course Completion Certificates (1 for each 30-hour course) as part of their license application.

What is my TREC ID number?

Your TREC ID number is included on the eligibility letter you will receive from TREC after you complete the 180-hour pre-license course and submit your license application. You will need to use your TREC ID number when you get your fingerprints taken and when you register for the state licensing exam.

How does TREC know that I have completed my pre-licensing courses?

As part of your license application, you must include copies of your 6 Course Completion Certificates. TREC will use these certificates as evidence that you have completed the 180-hour qualifying education requirement.

What happens if I lose my eligibility letter?

You should first contact TREC and ask if they will resend the eligibility letter. If for some reason TREC cannot resend the letter, you have the option to submit a Public Information Request form. The Public Information Request form must be submitted by mail, in-person, email, or fax.

What do I do with my eligibility letter from TREC?

You should hold onto your eligibility letter. The eligibility letter includes your TREC ID number. You will need to use the eligibility letter when you get your fingerprints taken at the MorphoTrust center, and when you schedule your state exam.

What is an eligibility letter from TREC?

Once all of the license application requirements are met, TREC will send you an eligibility letter, which includes your TREC ID number and instructions on how to register for the state exam. The eligibility letter is essentially your “green light” to take the state exam.
