TESTING PROCEDURES

Please note, TREC will not accept your certificate of completion for a pre-licensing course unless 3 days have elapsed since the date and time you started the course. Additionally, your participation in this course must not exceed 12 hours per day.

Example: If you started the course on March 2 at 11:00AM, then the soonest you could take the final exam would be March 4 at 6:00AM (3 days at 12 hours per day). Please note you are not required to work on the courses 12 hours per day, but this is the maximum amount of time per day allowed.

Starting and completing more than one qualifying course within the same 3 days does not comply with Commission rules.

TREC cannot award credit for courses and certificates that are not in compliance.

Please ensure you have met these requirements BEFORE attempting the final exam.

PROCTORED EXAMS

As of September 1, 2017, all 30-hour pre-licensing online courses must have a proctor present during the final exam. A proctor is an unbiased third-party who will verify your identity and oversee your taking the course exam. Below are some examples of who the Texas Real Estate Commission deems appropriate proctors:

1) Employees at official testing or learning/tutoring centers;
2) Librarians at a school, university, or public library;
3) College or university administrators, faculty, or academic advisors;
4) Clergy who are affiliated with a specific temple, synagogue, mosque, or church; and
5) Educational officers of a military installation or correctional facility.

You will need to present a picture ID to the proctor and then have him/her acknowledge and complete an online form, which will appear in the system, right before you can start the course exam.

RETAKING EXAMS

If a student does not pass a final course exam, Zarco Real Estate Academy offers a second chance with an alternative exam.   If the student fails the course exam twice, Zarco Real Estate Academy will make the course available to the student to repeat for a retake charge of $50. A student cannot take a course exam more than twice without repeating the course.

CRIMINAL HISTORY EVALUATION

Be Advised:  A criminal history may make students ineligible for the license they seek and you have a right to request a criminal history evaluation from the licensing authority.

You may request a criminal history evaluation before enrolling in courses or applying for a real estate license, as set out in Texas Occupations Code 53.025 and TREC Rule 541.1. If you have any criminal offenses, unpaid judgments, had disciplinary action taken against a professional or occupational license, or have performed an unlicensed activity, TREC requires you to consider submitting a completed Moral Character Determination Form before applying for a license.
