About the Exam:

A Real Estate Candidate Handbook is provided at the conclusion of the pre-license course and/or practice course and is available for download at http://www.pearsonvue.com/ks/realestate/. The handbook should be read thoroughly to understand the examination procedures. A summary is provided here.

Pearson VUE administers licensure examinations for the Kansas Real Estate Commission. The exam is computerized and all questions are multiple-choice. Four hours are allowed to complete the exam. The test is scored and the results are printed immediately.

Candidates who require special testing arrangements should contact the ADA Coordinator at (800) 274-3707 to obtain requirements for reasonable accommodation and to set up special testing arrangements.

Waiver of the National Portion
Candidates who are licensed in another state may only be required to take the STATE PORTION of the Kansas Real Estate exam but will need to follow this process. You must complete the required Client Waiver Request form before scheduling your exam and receive notification that your Client Waiver has been applied successfully. Failure to do so will require that you take both the GENERAL and STATE portions of the Kansas exam. The Test Center Administrator will not be able to apply a Client Waiver at the test center.

Instructions for obtaining a Waiver:
Complete the Client Waiver Request (www.pearsonvue.com/ks/realestate)

Email, fax or mail the completed Client Waiver Request Form and any required supporting documents to Pearson VUE.

Example, for a Non-Resident licensed in another state, you will need to submit a copy of your current license from your home state.
Pearson VUE will review and validate your Client Waiver request against the state’s policies. If you meet the requirements, Pearson VUE will send you an email confirmation that the Client Waiver has been applied.

After you receive the email confirmation, you may continue contacting Pearson VUE to schedule your exam appointment. You may also schedule online at www.pearsonvue.com.

If the Client Waiver is denied, Pearson VUE will send you an email that will contain information recommending next steps.

How to submit the Client Waiver Request Form

Please choose one of the following options:

Email the Client Waiver Request Form and the required supporting documentation to: PearsonVUEWaiversRequests@pearson.com

Fax Client Waiver Request Form and supporting documentation to 1-952-516-5473

Mail Client Waiver Request Form and supporting documentation to:
Pearson VUE
Attn: Client Waivers Request
5601 Green Valley Drive
Bloomington MN 55437

Mailing the information will result in a longer processing time. Please consider emailing or faxing for the fastest turnaround.

Please note: at the time an application is submitted, the Kansas Real Estate Commission will make its final determination about whether the applicant has submitted proof of completion of an equivalent general portion to the Kansas general exam.
