Florida Does Not Have A National Real Estate Test

Florida does not have a national test.  In many states, there are two portions of their real estate exam – state and national.  If you fail one portion, you only have to retake that portion.  That’s not the case in Florida.

In Florida, there is one test that covers both state and federal laws (plus principles, practices, and math!).  If you fail the test, you fail the test.  Why do I bring this up?

There are many online exam prep websites that sell a national practice test.  Don’t waste your money.  If you want to spend money on a practice test, I recommend this practice test bank or Linda Crawford’s Florida Real Estate Exam Manual.  If you don’t want that, be sure that the practice test you are using is from a school located in Florida.

I frequently get calls from people who spent money on a national exam prep program because the website said it would help you with the Florida test.  It will help you with a handful of questions, but that’s it.  Save your money and attend a FLORIDA-based review course, buy Linda Crawford’s FLORIDA real estate exam manual, or hire a FLORIDA instructor for tutoring.  That way, you can pass the FLORIDA test the first time you take it.

Please note that neither I, nor anyone in the Climer family, have any affiliation with Climer School of Real Estate.  My father, Ron Climer, sold Climer School of Real Estate in 2014.  You can find me at Demetree School of Real Estate.
