First: Register for Classes

In Nevada, you will be required to take 90 hours of pre-licensing courses before you can take the Nevada Real Estate Exam. The 90 hours of training must consist of the following:

  • 45 hours of Real Estate Principles
  • 45 Hours of Real Estate Law which mush include 18 hours of Nevada Law. 

If you are already licensed in another State besides Nevada

First, call the Nevada Real Estate Division and check with them to see what is required, in terms of education, to get your license here. Some states have licensure reciprocity, which means you may not have to take all of the courses required for a new licensee.

Man Studies for Real Estate Exam

18-Hour Course

The 18-hour course is designed for candidates who hold or have held a license in another state. The Nevada Real Estate Division normally only requires the applicant to take only the 18-hour course of Nevada law, if the applicant can show proof of taking a 90-hour real estate pre-licensing course.

45-Hour Course

The 45- hour course is designed for candidates who can show proof of taking a minimum of 45 hours of the required Real Estate Practices and Principles Pre-Licensing course in another state.  The Nevada Real Divison only would require you take the 45-hour Federal and Nevada State Law Course.
