To schedule the Real Estate Salesperson or Broker Exam either at one of the locations or remote starting on January 27th, 2021:
As of March 2019 the Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons (Board) has made it a requirement that you turn in an application before being able to schedule your exam for Brokers and Salesperson exam. This means anyone that has taken the class after March 2019 and 2 years before (March 2017 to March 2019) must turn in the application to PSI.
PSI will not forward the application to the Board until they receive the entire application. So, that means if you forget to send them one page or do not fill in the application correctly. You then have to be contacted by them either by email or mail and then it takes even longer for your application to be approved. So this does not happen we have created a video to explain exactly how to fill out the application and where to send.
The application can be emailed or mailed in. If you are going to email the application make sure to scan the application as a PDF document.

That is correct as of April 1st, 2016 PSI Services LLC will be the new testing service for Real Estate Exams here in the state of Massachusetts. As this is breaking news the board is not giving us any details about the transition just yet.
The notice was posted on the Pearson Vue website yesterday.
According to the Pearson Vue website:
As of March 15, 2016, Real Estate applicants will be able to schedule examinations with PSI Services LLC, for examinations, on or after April 1, 2016. Additional information can be found at the following web site on or around March 15th: psiexams.com
I am encouraging all of our broker and salesperson students that have already completed their prelicensing course, and not taken the real estate exam yet, to do so ASAP to avoid any delays in getting their license.
As word of the transition spreads I am sure that Pearson Vue will be swamped with students trying to take their test before April 1st so I would call Pearson Vue today and schedule the next available exam you can. Here is the number too make an exam reservation (800)274-0501.
You can be sure that we are going to be ferreting out all the details of this process as they unfold and informing you each step of the way.
Here is how you can help us. We are crafting a email to the Director of the Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons about this transition and would love to include your questions and feedback. If you have specific questions about the transition please post them below. As we get the answers to the questions we will detail them here so everyone gets the benefit of the information.
