How to Get a Real Estate Salesperson’s License in New Hampshire

New Hampshire's Office of Professional Licensure and Certification requires all salesperson applicants to be at least 18 years of age. If you meet this basic qualification, earn your New Hampshire salesperson license in five steps.

Step 1: Take the 40-hour Pre-license course

All New Hampshire salesperson applicants must take a 40-hour pre-licensing course before taking the exam. A pre-approved school must teach your course.

You'll learn about real estate topics pertinent to New Hampshire practice during the course, like New Hampshire RSA 331-A, Administrative rules, state-specific practices such as environmental issues, the Condominium Act, and Property Management. The course will also cover practices like listing property, selling property, property management, transfer of ownership, financing, and professional responsibilities.

Your course completion certificate is good for six months. Note that you have six months from the start of your course to take the license exam.

Step 2: Submit your Criminal Records Check

All New Hampshire real estate salespersons must submit a notarized criminal record release and the required fee of $25 to the Department of Safety, Division of State Police. Fill out the release form, which is already pre-filled in Section 2 by the New Hampshire Real Estate Commission. Your criminal record report is valid for six months. If you fail to apply for your license application while your record report is still valid, you will need to request and pay for a new report.

If you have a criminal record from any other jurisdiction showing a misdemeanor or felony offense, you must also provide a criminal record report.

Step 3: Schedule your state licensing exam

New Hampshire has contracted with PSI to administer the state licensing exam. New Hampshire's Real Estate Commission must approve you to take the exam. You will need to submit the exam registration form, proof of completing the pre-licensing course, and the examination fee. You have to take the exam within three months from the receipt of your exam registration (new rule 2021). If you do not take the exam inside this window, you must submit and pay for a new exam registration.

The exam fee is $155 paid to the Treasurer, State of New Hampshire, by check or money order.

PSI will notify you by email once the Real Estate Commission has approved your examination. Online scheduling is the fastest way to register for the exam. After you create an online account, you will be able to find your testing approval, search for testing centers, and select your date.

Telephone registration is also available by calling 855-340-3711.

If you have to cancel the exam, You must do so two days before your scheduled test, or you will forfeit your examination fee. Note that a voice mail is not an acceptable form of cancellation.

Step 4: Take and pass the real estate licensing exam

Bring to the PSI examination center two forms of identification. One of these must be a valid government-issued ID that has your signature and photograph like a driver's license, state ID, or a passport. The other must have at least your signature.

The New Hampshire real estate licensing exam has:

  1. A national section with 80 questions worth one point each. The time allowed is 150 minutes. A passing score is 56 points.
  2. A state section with 40 questions worth one point each. The time allowed is 90 minutes. A passing score is 28 points.
  3. Possibly 5 to 10 experimental questions which are not identified and not counted against your test score.

The Candidate Information Bulletin has content outlines and the percentage of questions asked in each topic area.

Immediately upon finishing the test, you will receive a score report on screen. Anyone with a failing score will also get a diagnostic report revealing their strengths and weaknesses by the exam type.

If you pass only one section of the test, you can have up to eight attempts within six months to pass the second portion. If you cannot pass the exam within that time, you'll have to complete an accredited pre-licensing course in addition to the previously submitted course. Each partial or full retake requires you to resubmit an exam registration and the total fee to the NHREC.

Step 5: Submit the real estate salesperson license application

Now that you have completed the steps above, it's time to fill out your real estate salesperson application. The New Hampshire Real Estate Commission gives candidates six months to submit and earn their license.

Before completing this application, you will need to be hired by a principal broker. They must sign part of your application attesting to your character. You also need three character affidavits signed by people who are not related to you and who can attest to moral character.

Include in your license application:

  1. Your original passing exam score sheet
  2. Any additional documentation as required to answers questions 1-6 in part 4

The license application fee is $90, made payable by check to the Treasurer, State of New Hampshire.

Once your license application is approved, the NHREC will issue your license to the managing broker. Congratulations, you are now a New Hampshire real estate salesperson!

My husband spotted the Real Estate U Groupon deal and he said I should look into it. Honestly at first I thought it had to be too good to be true. But after reading reviews and doing some research I said: “What the heck?!” For the price I really didn’t have much to lose.

I’m so happy I took the leap of faith! I loved the audible learning and that I could literally bring it with me wherever I went! I finished in 3 months! Trust me when I say if I can do it you can do it. I’m a very busy mother of 3 and they all have extracurricular activities, but somehow I buckled down and finished.

I did take a live test prep class at a local real estate school just to cover all bases. I reviewed all the quizzes from all the chapters to prepare. My advice would be to take your time when you test. I was so nervous but I took my time because I knew the material I just had to take my time!
Passing on my first try felt amazing!

I would not be here had I not had the amazing opportunity to complete the real estate licensing course via Real Estate U! I highly recommend the Real Estate U course. In fact my oldest son has decided to take the course as well!

I am currently working as a part time real estate agent for Century 21 APD Associates, in the beautiful city of El Paso, Texas. I wanted to get into real estate to become my own boss and I am looking forward to building a 6 figure income. I closed my first deal in October and looking to close on my second this December.

To obtain my license I chose RealEstateU. The courses were extremely helpful in passing state and national exam on my first try. I like the fact that I could study at my pace and I was able use my mobile to access my courses when on the road or when waiting on doctor appointments with my children.

I was able to go back and listen again and again to the parts that I did not get from the beginning. This is something that wouldn't have been provided by being in a classroom setting. If you are looking to obtain your license just be persistent and don't give up on your dream! I was able to invest in this course and more than tripled my return on the first home which I sold short after I obtained my real estate license.

If this is something you think you'll enjoy try it out and take the risk. Why not risk on something that has the potential to double or triple your income on the side. Jump on the opportunity of getting your license, which honestly is the easy part. And then go all in on the process helping clients and customers get what they want, which is a great home buying/selling experience.

Candice Jackson Tate

I (still am) a licensed auto insurance claims adjuster for a major insurance company. I held that position for 7.5 years. My family dynamic was changing and myself or my husband needed to be home more for our blended family of 5 children.

Real Estate allows me to regulate my schedule so I can dedicate time to my children and their activities. I will be working for LIV Realty in Frisco, TX and will be working full-time. My goals moving forward are to continue learning, networking and growing towards my own business. I plan on becoming a broker one day.

I loved the ease of the course. I was able to navigate easily and picked up where I left off each day. If I had any questions I received a response back very quickly from the RealEstateU support team. I was able to study and retain information easily. The workbook and the glossary were easy to follow and allowed me to print them to take with me in the event that I was not able to use my laptop. I loved that the course was accessible from a cell phone as well. We had a planned trip across the United States and I was able to study on my cell phone as we travelled 9 states. I have already recommended the course to a few of my friends!

Thank you so much for your help over the last few weeks. I rushed to get through the course because I am so excited to start working in the field as a NYS realtor. I thought this would have a negative impact on me toward the end when I was ready to test, but I feel I retained a lot of the info and am happy with the results.
