What To Bring To The Arizona Real Estate Exam

To have a successful exam experience, it’s important to come prepared for your appointment. Once you’ve finished an Arizona real estate license course and are ready to take the salesperson exam, make sure to bring the following:

– The Prelicensure Education Certificate (provided by your school)
– Proper identification
– A calculator (recommended) that meets the specific requirements outlined in the Pearson Vue Candidate Handbook.

When Should I Arrive?

You should arrive at your exam 30 minutes prior to your exam time. This will give the administrators time to check you in and take your photograph. In addition, they will have you review and sign the Candidate Rules Agreement, which covers the rules of the exam.

What Is The Exam Like?

Once you’re at your computer, you’ll have the chance to go through a tutorial that explains how the testing software works. It’s important to note that this tutorial won’t take up any of your actual exam time. However, once you move on to the first real test question, the timer will start counting down.

The Arizona Real Estate Exam for salespersons is made up of 180 graded questions, along with 15 pretest questions. You’ll have a total of 300 minutes (5 hours) to complete the exam. 

A note on pretest questions. These questions are questions that are being considered for future versions of the exam, but are not graded. They are not marked as pretest and you will most likely not notice the difference.

Exam Scoring And What It Takes To Pass

Once you complete the exam, your score will be revealed. In order to pass, you’ll need to achieve a minimum of 75%. If you succeed, you’ll be provided with a license application to proceed further with the licensing process. However, if you don’t pass, don’t despair! You can reapply to take the exam again after a 24-hour waiting period. In case you face another setback, you can schedule an ‘exam review appointment’ before your next attempt. It’s worth noting that the cost for retaking the exam remains the same as the initial price.
