Provincial Real Estate Exam

Students may write a maximum of one supplemental examination after failing their initial examination. If not successful on the second attempt, the student must wait one year from their last day of class and apply to re-take and complete the approved licensing course prior to writing a further exam attempt. 

Exams are written on the second Friday of every month. You must register for the exam and pay the $100 (plus applicable taxes) examination fee no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday the week before the exam. Exams are written in designated areas across the province by the NS Real Estate Commission. Applications are available in the Licensing Forms section of the NSREC website or by clicking below.
