I have my license in another state. Which courses do I need to complete to be licensed in Tennessee?

Please complete Worksheet A and email to Trec.info@tn.gov. They will let you know which courses you will need to complete in order to be Licensed in Tennessee.

I have failed my Real Estate pre-licensing exam. What do I do?

The affiliate broker and broker examinations are divided into two sections: National and State. Candidates who pass one section but fail the other only need to retake the section they failed. The passing score for one section of an examination is valid for two (2) retakes of the failed section or six (6) months, whichever comes first. 

Affiliate broker and broker examination candidates who fail the first attempt at the examination may retake it as soon as they want (however you cannot schedule until 24 hrs have elapsed since the failed examination). After the second attempt, an examination candidate must wait thirty (30) days between any subsequent failed exams to retake the examination.

How do I contact PSI about a Real Estate Exam?

The Tennessee Real Estate Commission now has a direct number for PSI.  You can now call 855-340-3710 for questions about scheduling a test or other testing issues.  This number will only be able to help with questions about the real estate test.  They will not be able to help with questions about other professional license tests.

How do I apply for an Affiliate Broker license?

Affiliate broker candidates must complete sixty (60) hours of real estate education in real estate principles/fundamentals before they take the examination. Proof that the education described above has been completed will be forwarded by the school where the education was completed to PSI. You may not register for the examination until the school has provided that information to  PSI [pdf]. The school will also provide you a certificate or letter of course completion that you must submit to TREC with your application for licensure. Affiliate brokers licensed after 12/31/04 must have completed the 30-hour "Course for New Affiliates" prior to their license being issued and a letter or certificate of completion of the "Course for New Affiliates" must also be submitted with the license application.

Once you have completed the pre-licensing coursework and requirements you can apply for a license online at core.tn.gov
