About the Exam
The Texas Real Estate exam is one of many requirements for individuals interested in sales agent licensure in the state. Texas residents must pass the state and national portions of this Internet-based exam to secure licensure. The national portion of the test consists of 85 items and lasts 150 minutes, while the state portion features 40 items and lasts 90 minutes. If you take the national and state tests together, there are 125 items and a time allotment of 240 minutes.
