To get approved by the State of NH Real Estate Commission, and to register to take the exam with the PSI Services LLC, one needs to follow a two-step process, as follows:
1. Send in your completed application to the NH Real Estate Commission with your exam fee. The exam fee is currently $155 ($170 for brokers), which is payable by check or money order to the Treasurer, State of NH. After you are registered with the State of NH, your information is forwarded to the testing service (PSI). They should notify you that they are ready for you to contact them to schedule an exam date, time and location. If you don’t hear within 1 - 2 weeks of sending in your application, call the testing service directly.
2. Call PSI (800-733-9267) or access their web site (www.psiexams.com) to schedule an exam date. Please read the PSI Real Estate Candidate Handbook (which is obtained from the www.psiexams.com website to create an account) for more information on the process and the test. Exams can typically be scheduled with 1 day advance notice if available. VERY IMPORTANT, SPACE IS LIMITED IN ALL THE TEST CENTERS—SO CONTACT THE PSI TESTING SERVICE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. This will help to get you an earlier testing date.
