PSI to Begin Offering Exams Remotely, Website to be Down Monday

By: Kim Shindle on in

The real estate licensing exam will be offered remotely beginning next week, according to PSI, which administers the licensing exams for Pennsylvania. PSI is rolling out a hybrid testing model, which includes the traditional test center exam delivery as well as remote-proctored testing.

PSI will not be available on Monday, Dec. 14 for any online or in-person registration for exams. Beginning Dec. 15, licensee candidates can begin to register for their exams on PSI’s new website at https://psiexams.com/pare and they can begin to take online exams as soon as Dec. 16.

When licensee candidates visit the new website, they’ll need to create a new account, log in and select whether they want to take their test in person or online.

  • In-person option: a screen will appear to allow them to schedule a date, time and location for a physical testing site.
  • Online virtual test option: candidates will have to verify that they have the technical capability and other screening questions which will allow them to register for a convenient time when a proctor is available to administer the test.

Once the exam is completed, scores will no longer be printed onsite for those taking the exam in person. Scores for the Pennsylvania and national portions will be emailed to the candidates’ accounts created on the PSI site. The candidates will be able to print their own scores to submit with their application to the commission in order to apply for licensure.

Frequently asked questions are available online. If there are any issues with scheduling or receiving exam results, the licensee candidate should contact PSI to rectify whatever their issue might be.

Trial Result Could Impact Pennsylvania Real Estate Activity

PAR has been tracking Ladd v. State Real Estate Commission since it was originally filed in 2018. Though the case had previously been dismissed by the Commonwealth Court, on May 19, 2020, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court issued a decision reviving the case and sending it back to proceed to trial. The final outcome of the case could impact the licensing requirement for those engaging in Pennsylvania real estate activity.
