Kansas Real Estate Exam Info

Obtaining a real estate license in Kansas, or other states in which you may have interest in doing business is not difficult, if you know what to expect. The process is slightly different from state to state. Each state has adopted and enforces its own laws and regulations regarding the practice of real estate. So you must study for the Kansas real estate exam specifically.  For this reason, RealEstateStudyAid.com focuses on Kansas information to help you prepare for the Brokers or Salesperson exam.

For admittance to the exam, candidates must show one of the following:

A. Certificate of completion for the Kansas pre-license course (salesperson's - 30-hour Principles of Real Estate course; broker's - 24-hour Broker Pre-License Course). It is recommended candidates have in their possession the certificate of completion before contacting Promissor to make an exam reservation.

B. For candidates applying based on equivalent requirements met in another state, proof of a current real estate license in another state as demonstrated by one of the following:
1) license or pocket card;
2) certification of licensure issued by the state's licensing agency
3) license record printed from the state's licensing agency's web site; or
4) waiver issued by the Kansas Real Estate Commission
