What is on the Georgia salesperson licensing exam? If you’re studying to get your salesperson license in Georgia, it’s a question you’ve probably asked yourself. Knowing what you’ll be tested on will not only guide your study plan, it’ll help you feel confident and prepared going into the exam center on the big day. Here’s what the test will look like.
The Georgia salesperson exam is administered by PSI, a testing services provider. You can take the test at any of the PSI testing locations around the state, though you do need to make a reservation for your time slot ahead of time. The PSI candidate handbook has detailed information about the test and testing center policies. Here are some quick stats about the test:
The Georgia Salesperson Supplemental Examination is a test given to Florida license-holders applying for a reciprocal Georgia license. Essentially, you’ll just be taking the state portion of the salesperson exam. Here’s what that test looks like:
The Georgia salesperson exam is broken up into a national portion and a state-specific portion. Both portions will have three types of multiple-choice questions:
The national portion has 100 questions covering seven topics:
There are also 52 state questions. These questions cover real estate license laws and regulations specific to Georgia.
Security is strict at the testing centers. There will be video and audio surveillance equipment in use. Here's a list of things you cannot bring with you to the exam:
Try to bring the bare minimum: your wallet and keys, including two forms of acceptable ID.
You will be provided a soft locker (a bag that can be locked shut) to stash your wallet and keys. Your personal items must fit inside the bag if you want to be eligible to take the test. You can keep the soft locker with you in the testing room, but won't be able to open it until the exam is over.
Anyone who somehow manages to sneak in a prohibited item (accidentally or intentionally) and is caught with it will immediately forfeit the exam.
This is very important: you MUST show up to take the test with two forms of current ID. At least one must be government-issued and have a name, photo, and signature. The other must have at least your name and signature.
The most important thing is to get to your exam location on time. Anyone who shows up 15 minutes after the scheduled test time will not be allowed to take the exam and will have to reschedule.
How will the test itself work?
If you pass, you’ll receive a Certification of Accuracy Statement. The certification is needed to apply for a real estate license. If you took a morning test and brought along the proper documents, you may be able to get an active license that same day. If not, you can bring the unsigned Certification of Accuracy Statement and required documents back to the test center at a later date to receive your license. Applicants have one year to complete their applications, or they must retake the test.
