We hope that you are doing well. In the last few days many students have been contacting us with questions about PSI and the test. On March 17th, we emailed you to let you know that PSI was still open. That quickly changed on March 19th. The CEO of PSI decided to close PSI to protect the safety of employees and students. As of March 19th, 2020 PSI and the testing centers are closed until April 13th, 2020.
We understand that if you have gone onto PSI website and check the location closings that not all the testing centers are listed. We have spoke with the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons. All testing centers are closed until April 13th, 2020.
If you have a test scheduled between March 20th and April 13th you should have received an email from PSI letting you know that your test has been cancelled. To reschedule your exam you will need to login to your account on PSIEXAMS.COM.
We will be check periodically to see if there are any changed to the dates. We hope you all stay safe.

Has your license expired or do you need to check to make sure the contractor, chiropractor, hair dresser, massage therapist or any other licensed professional has a current license. You can check the license for any licensed professional in Massachusetts on the Division of Professional Licensure website.
So, let’s say your real estate license expired and you just do not remember the number or when it expired. The only information that you need for the search is the name of the Board of Registration your license belongs to, the type of license you had and your full name.
Steps to check a Real Estate license:
1. Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons
2. Either a Salesperson or Broker license
3. Either your license number or Full Name
Once you have completed the 40 hours prelicense Salesperson or Broker class. You will be given a Candidate Bulletin from PSI. You will need to complete and mail in your application and paperwork to be able to schedule your exam with PSI.
If you have not yet done this please read Scheduling the Massachusetts real estate exam with PSI. PSI will contact you to let you know that you are able to schedule your appointment. There are 5 locations to take the test. The test is available Monday through Saturday. The testing times are 8am, 12pm or 4pm.
As of March 4th, 2019 PSI and the Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons have changed the way you register for the test. The Board was having issues with people not being honest or making mistakes about their criminal history. After you passed your exam and paid for your license the Board would then run a CRIMINAL OFFENDER RECORD INFORMATION (CORI) check. We have been told that they have had to pull to many licenses because the CORI check came back positive for criminal activity.
In order to prevent this mistakes from happening. The Board now requires that everyone fill out an application and mail in all supporting documents with the payment for the test to PSI.
For all of our students that took the class with us in the last two years. If your PSI booklet has not yet expired. You still qualify to take the test. You just need to download the correct application either the Salesperson or Broker Application depending on which exam you are trying to take.
If you have already filled out and completed the 3 good moral character references, the CORI form, Broker work experience certificate or the Bond for Broker Students. Do not worry. You can send those forms in with your application. Remove them from your old PSI Candidate Bulletin neatly.
