License Application Process

Rowlett Real Estate School recommends that, if at all possible, as soon as the student decides to take the sales associate license course or the broker license course, the student should

1. First make application to the state.

This will insure that you are approved to take the state board and will also allow you to take the state exam as soon as you finish your course with no waiting. This can be accomplished by doing it on-line or printing the application out, having it notarized and mailing the application in with a check. The school recommends students make the application on-line because it is faster and the student can attest to the facts without having to have the document notarized, saving time and money. Students can mail the application payment on-line by credit card.

Pearson VUE Schedule

At most sites there are two exams scheduled per day. One is in the morning at 8:00 A.M. and one in the afternoon at 1:00 P.M. Exams are scheduled Monday through Saturday. There are only a few locations that do evening exams and Pearson VUE does not promote it. So if that is necessary, you will have to ask for it.

  • The call centers hours are:
  • Monday through Friday: 8:00 A. M. to 11:00 P. M. EST
  • Saturday: 8:00 A. M. to 5:00 P. M. EST
  • Sunday: 10:00 A. M. to 2:00 P. M. EST

When you call Pearson VUE give them a Visa/MasterCard/Discover or American Express card to pay for the exam. The other option is to bring a money order or cashier check to the test center.

What to bring to the Pearson VUE Center

The student needs to bring the Rowlett Real Estate School completion certificate to the required course to the exam center not the "wall certificate".
