How To Get A Real Estate License In Nevada

Nevada has several license types:

  1. Salesperson - A real estate agent under the supervision of a Broker. This person is licensed to conduct real estate transactions.
  2. Broker - An office manager. This person employs Salespersons.
  3. Broker-Salesperson - This is someone who has the training and license to be a Broker but chooses to be employed under the supervision of another Broker.

If you are new to the real estate industry and looking to get started as a real estate agent, then you need to get a "real estate salesperson" license.

Nevada Real Estate License Requirements

To get a real estate salesperson license in Nevada, applicants must:

  1. Be at least 18 years of age.

  3. Pass a state licensing exam.
  4. Pass a background check and get fingerprinted.

Nevada Real Estate Salesperson Pre-License Training

Applicants who complete the Nevada real estate license training will be given a course completion certificate as evidence of completing the education requirement.

Scheduling an Exam and Applying for a License

The testing provider for the Nevada real estate salesperson licensing exam is Pearson VUE. After the training has been completed, a licensee candidate will need to schedule, pay for, and pass two exams through Pearson VUE: a national exam and a Nevada state exam. A candidate will receive a proof of passing certificate that will need to be included with the salesperson license application.

Every candidate for a real estate license must submit their fingerprints to the Nevada Real Estate Division. This can be done by either having a law enforcement division create a paper fingerprint card or by having the prints taken through a LIVESCAN provider. The Nevada Real Estate Division has a list of authorized vendors where a candidate can have the fingerprints collected. Pearson Vue can collect fingerprints after successfully passing the licensing exam.

License applicants will need to complete and then mail Form 549 - Real Estate License Checklist and Application to the division or deliver it in-person at the main office in Las Vegas.
