Real Estate Agent Exam
Qualifications to receive a License:  A candidate must complete 40 clock hours of study at an NHREC-approved real estate school (search schools here), pass a school-administered final exam, and (within one year) pass a state exam.  All candidates must submit a full set of fingerprints, and pass a background check.  All candidates must be at least 18 years of age.

Applying for the Exams:  Prior to registering for the state exam, a candidate must submit an application for licensure to NHREC.  NHREC then notifies both the candidate and Applied Measurement Professionals (the testing vendor, "AMP") of the candidate's eligibility to sit for the state licensing exam.  The candidate should apply to take the state exam through the Applied Measurement Professionals (AMP) website scheduling page. For more information, see the New Hampshire Real Estate Examination Candidate Handbook.

Test Content:  The New Hampshire state real estate licensing exam is comprised of two separate portions, the national portion and the state-specific portion. Five to ten questions (disbursed throughout both portions of the exam) are considered "experimental" questions and are not scored. The questions on the two portions are intermixed and do not appear as separate sections. Both portions are comprised of multiple choice questions with four answer choices provided for each question. Test takers are allotted 3 ½ hours to complete both portions of the exam. The passing score for each portion of the exam is a scaled score of 70. The exam is presented in a computer-based format, but accommodations for paper-based tests and/or oral testing can be provided with special arrangements.

The national portion of the test consists of 100 questions, and tests the candidate's knowledge of general real estate concepts, including the following subject areas:
