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 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.

Schedule and pass the national and state exams, get fingerprinted, then complete and submit Form 549.

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.
