Due to Covid-19, the Arizona Department of Real Estate (ADRE) has temporarily allowed at home testing with the use of a proctor using an approved 3rd party proctoring service. Please read through all the resources below. Understanding the proctor check-in process and being prepared for your proctored exam will ensure your test starts smoothly.
Schedule Your School Exam
Once you have completed all your sessions in the Real Estate Licensing Program, you are eligible to take the School Exam. We have designed our School Exam to mimic the State Exam as much as possible, to better prepare you to pass your State Exam the first time. You must pass your School and State exams with a score of at least 75%. You have 4 hours to take your 180 question exam. While the exam is challenging for some, Arizona School of Real Estate has the highest pass rates in the state! We recommend that you take the School Exam as soon as possible after you complete the 18 sessions while the material is still fresh in your mind.
You will have three chances to take and pass the proctored online test with our third-party partner ProctorU®. If you do not pass on the 3rd attempt, your student account will be locked out of taking the test again until you have completed one of our Virtual Instructor Q&A Sessions. Effective 1/4/21
ProctorU® Scheduling and Fees
The cost of Proctored School Exam is included in our package pricing for exams scheduled at least 72 hours out from the time of registration. You will only be asked to pay a convenience fee should you schedule an exam that is sooner than 72 hours.
In your student account, select your Prelicense course and you will find the link to the ProctorU site to set up an account. Once you are ready to schedule your exam you will schedule a time with ProctorU to have one of their proctors launch and monitor your exam.
Because you are testing from the convenience of your home and not onsite in a controlled testing environment there will be a check-in process to make sure you meet both requirements of ProctorU and the State for taking an online proctored test. Please review the resources below on scheduling and preparing for your proctored test appointment
