The real estate exam for Nevada real estate agents is being expanded from a single exam to a five-week course that will give agents the chance to demonstrate the skills they need to succeed in the job.
The new test, which was created by the Nevada Association of Realtors, will be offered for agents starting in the spring.
The real-estate exam is currently offered on a one-year cycle.
“This is a new tool for agents to help them prepare to take the exam and is a significant step toward the new exam that we’ve launched,” said Michael D. Smith, Nevada’s commissioner of real estate.
“It is the first of its kind to be offered nationally and we’re looking forward to working with the industry to expand this opportunity for agents.”
In addition to expanding the exam to include agents, the real-house exam will also offer a virtual examination that agents can take online to gain the experience of taking the exam.
Agents can take the online exam anytime by going to www.
This is the fifth exam to be expanded in the last five years.
In 2016, the Real Estate Institute of America (REIA) launched an exam that would include agents and their family members.
The exam will be available for the first time in 2019, the REIA said.
Nevada is one of only two states that require a real-tourism agent to have a real estate license, along with California.
Real-tours is a practice that is often used by real-name agents who have an extensive knowledge of real- estate, and real-life salespeople who have the ability to speak with potential buyers.
The Nevada exam, however, will not require an agent to hold a realtor license, and it is expected to have no impact on agents’ ability to conduct real estate transactions.
