How to Get a Real Estate Salesperson’s License in West Virginia

West Virginia requires new real estate salespersons to be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or equivalent before receiving license. If you meet this qualification earn your license in (6) steps.

Step 1: Take a 90-hour pre-licensing course

Begin with a 90-hour pre-licensing course designed to prepare you for the business of real estate and teach you West Virginia real estate regulations. Take the course from a state-approved education provider.

You earn a Certificate of Course Completion after passing the course final. Your pre-license education is valid for five years.

Step 2: Submit a criminal background check

You must submit to a state and federal criminal background check. The results are good for 90 days. Time with your application submission.

Schedule an appointment by visiting https://uenroll.identogo.com/. Bring this form with you to the appointment and provide the service code 228Q6K. The fee is $45.75 paid at the time of the appointment.

Step 3: Apply for a West Virginia salesperson license

The West Virginia Real Estate Commission (WBREC) gives you the option of completing an online application or a paper application for your salesperson license.

Your salesperson license application will include:

  • Your employing broker signature
  • Two character recommendations from non-relative property owners who have known you at least two years
  • The notarization of all signatures

The salesperson application fee is $25.

Step 4: Schedule the real estate exam

The WVREC uses PSI to administer the state licensing exam. The WVREC must approve you before you can schedule your exam. PSI will contact you with your testing approval.

You’ll have 90 days to schedule the exam. Find the testing schedule and centers on the PSI website or the state Candidate Handbook.

Step 5: Pass the WV real estate exam

Bring two forms of unexpired identification to the test center. One is required to be a government-issued ID with your signature and photograph.

The West Virginia state exam has a national portion and a state portion. About the salesperson real estate exam:

  1. The national section is 2.5 hours to answer 100 questions. Passing is 70 correct answers.
  2. The state section is 1 hour to answer 50 questions. Passing is 38 correct answers.

PSI publishes the specific number of questions for each topic area in the Candidate Handbook.

Immediately upon exam completion, report to the testing supervisor. They will provide you with a score report marked “pass” or “fail” and next step information.


Step 6: Submit your passing exam result

Passing candidates finish their West Virginia real estate application by submitting the license activation form found on page 13 of the Candidate Information Handbook and paying the $75 license fee. Include your original exam report with the form. You have three months after passing the exam to pay the fee and send the paperwork.

The WVREC will send your license to your employing broker. Once they receive it, you’ll be a licensed real estate salesperson. Congratulations!

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.

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.
